Winter sports

The Schluchtensteig Trail in the Black Forest

It is time burn some calories in the famous Elb river in Germany, where you can hike in the Black Forest (named this way because it’s home to many pine trees, but it’s very green). Do not forget to try the delicacies along the way while exploring the gorgeous nature dressed in white snow.
