Information about the trail

The Classic


Using former border paths and link-ways the trail takes you through Germany`s wide and divers landscape from the top of the Pforzheim mountains in the north through the countryside of Titisee and Feldberg to the triangle formed by the border of Germany, France and Switzerland!

The Westweg trail runs through woods that seem to go on forever, over high mountain tracks affording stunning far-reaching views, through narrow valleys and over majestic mountains.
