The «Jägersteig» on Schluchsee

First class hiking with spectacular views!

Freiburg is the ideal base for excursions into the Black Forest! Should it get really warm in summer, then the Schluchsee invites you to take a refreshing bath, where this tour begins and ends.
The Jägersteig has been recognized as a pleasure trail as well as a premium hiking trail and is certainly one of the most beautiful routes for a Black Forest excursion.

From the Aha train station, you follow a rather steep ascent to the Bildstein, from where, in good weather, you can enjoy a view over the entire Schluchsee to the Swiss Alps. Then the Jägersteig follows very picturesque small paths through the forest. When the sun is shining, the play of sun and shadow draws a pretty pattern on the moss-covered forest floor; when the weather is foggy and damp, you have the feeling of entering a legend about mythical creatures. The last part of the Jägersteig leads along the lake promenade back to the starting point, here you can take a short swim break if the weather is good.

Length:11 km, 460 meters in altitude, duration approx. 4 hours
Difficulty level:medium – sturdy shoes required and not suitable for prams
Refreshments available several times (Schluchsee-Ort, Aha)

Getting there:

With the Breisgau S-Bahn you can reach Aha station every 15 minutes in about an hour.
Aha can also be reached by car in around 1 hour – however, due to the lack of parking spaces, we recommend using public transport.

– An initiative by Freiburg restaurants and the tourism board FWTM –

As a special offer for our guests, we have jointly developed a sustainable seal of quality with the following characteristics:

  • The dishes of the Freiburg menu are consistently prepared from at least 70% ingredients from the region
  • The ingredients originate from suppliers within a maximum radius of 130km from Freiburg
  • In terms of content, every restaurateur is free in his creative design and offers dishes that suit his own house and kitchen
  • All dishes that are part of the menu are marked with the Freiburg logo on the menu
  • The Freiburg menu is offered all year and changes at least 4 times a year to emphasize the regionality and seasonality
  • To enhance transparency, we are happy to inform you about the exact origin of the products
  • Regional drinks such as water, juices, beer, wine and spirits are offered to match the menu

We are very pleased to be part of this initiative and to be able to put the culinary wealth of our region in the foreground – we wish you bon appetite!
