The Baden Württemberg Württemberg Orbit takes you through the most beautiful forests of the Schönbuch and deep into the Northern Black Forest.
Along the way you will always find small fountains from which you can drink the best Black Forest water. The signs “No drinking water” are usually appropriate because the wells cannot be tested regularly to guarantee drinking water quality. If you want to split the route into several parts and spend the night outside – the Black Forest is full of shelters, you will always find one along the route.
– Baden Württemberg is the only federal state in Germany in which it is prohibited by law to cycle on paths that are narrower than 2 meters, unless it’s explicitly allowed. That sounds worse than it is. I’ve never been stopped and I don’t know anyone who has had a problem with that. The important thing is: Always ride carefully, if you see hikers and give friendly greetings, you will likely not run into any trouble.
– It often happens that forest roads that end on roads are secured with barriers. Sometimes they are difficult to see in changing light. But they are almost always announced with a sign “Attention barrier” or similar. Keep your eyes open!
– The route was scouted in April / May 2020. It can always happen that forest roads are blocked for forestry work. In this case please use an alternative route and write to us so we can warn other riders.
