Travel to the Black Forest

Day 8 Titisee

(in 41 Km.) Titisee: Titisee is a lake in the southern Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Baden-Württemberg. It covers an area of 1.3 km  (2 kilometers long and 700 meters wide) and has an average depth of 20 meters. It owes its creation to the Feldberg glacier, the moraine ploughed up by which in the Pleistocene epoch nowadays forms the lake´s shores.

The lake´s outflow, at 840 m above sea level, is the river Gutach (or as it is called farther downstream, the Wutach). On the north shore lies the spa town of the same name, today a part of the municipality of Titisee-Neustadt. It is said it got its name from Roman Emperor Titus, who came along with the Roman Legion two thousand years before. Despite the beauty of the lake, we found it too touristy environment, with lots of traffic, too many hotels, etc.
