Classic historical guided tour of Alpirsbach

How did the town of Alpirsbach come into being over 900 years ago in the deep Black Forest? We visit historic buildings and stroll through the idyllic spa garden and along the romantic Kinzig river.

Price: 60 € on weekdays, 70 € on Sundays

Number of participants: max. 20 people

Fascination Moss!

Discover mosses anew. Experience, feel and learn about mosses. During excursions in the Black Forest Nature Park Central/North you will experience the fascination of mosses. What a wonder of nature they are! For they are not only beautiful and characterise the image of the Black Forest, mosses were also used in many ways in the past. How important were they for our ancestors and are they still important for us today? They have an important function for our climate and our forest, find out what it is. What are mosses? Plants, fungi or something else entirely? Why do they sometimes have such curious names, wrinkled moss, sleeping moss or beautiful women's hair? Mosses that are not protected species will also be examined more closely under a magnifying glass. Therefore, if you have magnifying glasses, please bring them with you, but there are also magnifying glasses available for hire. As there are also mosses along the path, this guided tour can also be made barrier-free.

Price: 10 € per person for fixed dates; 120 € per group up to 15 people (larger groups on request).

Fascination Trees & Hedges

Romantic hike through meadows and forests. It goes along the Dornhanerplatte, in a landscape with gentle hills and small forests. Trees, without them our world would not be as we know it. They are oxygen producers, water reservoirs, wood suppliers, habitats for animals, doctors for our souls and friends for many of us. Hedges are windbreaks, food and nesting places for birds. Sun protection for many plants and animals. In the past as well as today, they protect us and our houses against the rigours of the outside world, be it natural such as wind and rain, but also human and animal enemies. A properly selected hedge keeps many a thief away. Part of the excursion are names, benefits, differences and dangers for and by trees. Which tree belongs to them, do they perhaps have the same characteristics?

This guided tour takes place in Alpirsbach, but can also be moved to another area as an ad hoc hike if desired.

Price: 10 € per person for fixed dates; 120 € per group up to 15 people (larger groups on request).

Barefoot through forest and water, experience pure nature!

Have you always wanted to walk over a waterfall or barefoot through the forest? Experience the forest with all your senses; feel the roots, pine needles, soft moss or even the occasional mud or stone. Feel the coolness of the water; a wonderful change, especially in summer. Smell the scent of the forest, resin, earth or water. We walk barefoot for about 2 km on a natural path through the forest. At the end we climb up a small waterfall. For this, as well as for the barefoot trail, some fitness and coordination is required.
