Black Forest Holiday Rentals - visit Germany's holiday jewel
The area is bordered in the west and south by the Rhine valley and its highest peak, with an elevation of 1493 metres, is Feldberg. Being almost rectangular, the forest is 60km wide and 200km long. The history of the forest’s name dates back to the Romans who named it Silva Nigra (Black Forest) due it its densely packed conifers which blocked out most of the light in the forest.
The Black Forest is also the setting for the famous fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. Visit another wild, windswept and magically romantic holiday destination: Isle of Skye Cottage Rentals. While the Black Forest may not be very high, it does offer some excellent hiking and mountain biking and there are also a few ski resorts. For the serious snow boarder and skier, the Alps further south offer an ideal place to live out your passion. The towns around the area provide excellent and varied Black Forest apartments
Black Forest Holiday Rentals - a timeless holiday favourite
The “Jewel of the Black Forest”, Freiburg im Breisgau is not only a great place for Black Forest holiday accommodation, but also one of the major cities of southwestern Germany. This university town, situated in a isolated wine-rich area on the edge of the Black Forest, is not only a picturesque and relaxing holiday destination, but is also considered by Germans to be a desirable place to live. Because of its seclusion, Freiberg is not a major tourist destination itself, but rather a great base to explore the rest of Europe. The locals do their shopping mostly in France and Switzerland and frequent theatres and museums in Zürich or Basel.
