Triberg Lake And Mountain Holidays


Traditional Triberg is renowned for its exceptional cuckoo clocks and for being the home of the original Black Forest Gateau. Germany's highest waterfalls, which can be accessed through a wooded gorge, are one of the region's most visited and popular attractions. The spectacular course of the river over seven cascades is an awe-inspiring sight no tourist should miss. For those interested in Triberg's history and lifestyle, visit the Black Forest Museum which gives an interesting overview on these subjects whilst displaying the local crafts of Triberg.

At Elbe Uhren-Park, just outside of Triberg, you will find the world's largest cuckoo clock. The giant timepiece is 60 times bigger than traditional examples and the cuckoo alone weighs 150kg.

Fred.\ Holidays can also offer hotels in Titisee-Neustadt and Baden-Baden for anyone looking to stay elsewhere in the Black Forest area.

Suggested Break

The Best of the Black Forest. Three Centre, self-drive break

Start your adventure in Freiburg at the Southern end of the Black Forest. This lively city is dominated by the magnificent Münster Cathedral on the bustling market square. As you stroll through the town, be sure to look down at the pavement for the colourful mosaics usually found in front of the shops. Be careful not to step into the little rivers (Bächle) running parallel to many footpaths.

Then, head to traditional Triberg, renowned for its exceptional cuckoo clocks and home to the original Black Forest Gateau. Another major attraction is Germany's highest waterfalls which can be accessed through a wooded gorge. You will enjoy a magnificent spectacle of nature following the course of the river over seven cascades. For an imaginative overview of Triberg's history and social life in the region, visit the Black Forest Museum for its displays of local crafts.

Finally, visit charming Titisee, where the crystal-clear water of its lake, attract visitors from afar. Swim or pedalo to your heart's content, or explore the numerous walking paths leading from the lake into the charming surrounding countryside.
