Leisure and Region

The Cuckoo Clock, Dark Fir trees, Black Forest Cake and Black Forest Girl are the first associations around the world when it comes to the “Schwarzwald”, La Forêt-Noire or simply the Black Forest. In the south of the famous mountain range is St. Georgen on the Rhine-Danube watershed, which is why the town is referred to as "Scheitel Alemanniens" (Parting of Germany). The original Black Forest landscape, the numerous cultural attractions and many leisure activities in and around St. Georgen make the location an ideal starting point to explore the Black Forest region.
