Cochem Hauenstein Koenigsfeld im Schwarzwald
Published: 26/10/2019
Day 2 we drive from Cochem to Königsfeld im Schwarzwald.

A nice ride of 365 kilometers with a variation between provincial and country roads. Lots of beautiful nature, nice villages, winding roads where we drive a little through France.

The highlight is the Schwarzwaldhochstraße (RP16-18), also known as B500 and is the oldest and perhaps the most beautiful route through the Black Forest. It winds up to the top of the Bühlerhöhe. The road continues along the mountains, with a beautiful view to Freudenstadt on the east side of the forest, all at an altitude between 800 and 1000 meters.

This 65-kilometer panoramic road runs from Baden-Baden through the northern Black Forest to Freudenstadt and is a must for every visitor in the Black Forest. Along the way there are several places to stop and enjoy the view. It is very busy on weekends, so keep in mind some extra travel time. Also think of your speed, a lot is checked here.

At RP17 there is a possibility to stop at the Mummelsee. Here you can have a drink and enjoy the view over the Mummelsee.

The end point is the Schwarzwald Parkhotel, a large hotel with outbuildings where you can also rent rooms, some also have a kitchenette, but unfortunately no air conditioning so it can be hot. Nice location and a cozy terrace with a good restaurant and a very extensive breakfast.

I rate this route with 4 stars because of the beautiful winding and panoramic roads through the Eifel and Schwarzwald

About this region
Baden-Württemberg (, German: [ˌbaːdn̩ ˈvʏʁtəmbɛʁk] (listen)) is a state (Land) in southwest Germany, east of the Rhine, which forms the southern part of Germany's western border with France. With more than 11 million inhabitants as of 2017 across a total area of nearly 35,752 km2 (13,804 sq mi), it is the third-largest German state by both area (behind Bavaria and Lower Saxony) and population (behind North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria). As a federated state, Baden-Württemberg is a partly-sovereign parliamentary republic. The largest city in Baden-Württemberg is the state capital of Stuttgart, followed by Mannheim and Karlsruhe. Other cities are Freiburg im Breisgau, Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Pforzheim, Reutlingen, Tübingen, and Ulm. What is now Baden-Württemberg was formerly the historical territories of Baden, Prussian Hohenzollern, and Württemberg. Baden-Württemberg became a state of West Germany in April 1952 by the merger of Württemberg-Baden, South Baden, and Württemberg-Hohenzollern. These states had just been artificially created by the Allies after World War II out of the existing traditional states Baden and Württemberg by their separation over different occupation zones. Baden-Württemberg is especially known for its strong economy with various industries like car manufacturing, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, the service sector, and more. It has the third highest gross regional product (GRP) in Germany. Part of the Four Motors for Europe, some of the largest German companies are headquartered in Baden-Württemberg, including Daimler AG, Porsche, Robert Bosch GmbH and SAP. The sobriquet Ländle (a diminutive of the word "Land" in the local Alemannic and Franconian dialects) is sometimes used as a synonym for Baden-Württemberg.
