Hardly any other vacation region is as easy to reach as the Black Forest. So you can leave your car at home and travel to the varied landscape around Germany’s largest nature parks, the Black Forest National Park and the Black Forest Biosphere Reserve in an environmentally friendly way by train. The ICE train lines Frankfurt-Basel and the IC line Munich-Stuttgart-Basel, the IRE Ulm-Friedrichshafen-Basel frame the vacation region. The Höllentalbahn, the Schwarzwaldbahn and the Murgtalbahn cross the region from west to east. Trains and buses from the nine regional transport associations and DB-Regio provide access to the 11,000 square kilometer vacation region. Travel is particularly inexpensive with the Flex and Spar fares and the BahnCard from Deutsche Bahn. Locally, you can stay mobile at low cost with the bw tariff “bwegt” and the ticket offers of the regional transport associations. The KONUS guest card, which is available when staying overnight in one of the more than 148 KONUS towns in the Black Forest, offers vacationers a special advantage. With the KONUS guest card, you can explore the Black Forest vacation region by bus and train free of charge during your entire stay.
