Germany: Skiing in the Black Forest
This winter, we celebrate a nice anniversary: 125 years of skiing in the Black Forest. In Baden-Württemberg lies the Feldberg peak at an altitude of 1493 meters: it is thus the highest peak in the middle German mountains. According to the Tourism Office of the High Black Forest, it is here that the history of skiing began, 125 years ago and revolutionized the Black Forest. On February 8th of 1891, with two oddly curved wooden boards and hooked under his feet, the adventurer and French diplomat R. Pilet climbed the Feldberg with these so-called “Norwegian snowshoes”. In order to celebrate this invention on its birthplace, many events will take place this winter on the winter sports theme. Among the highlights, we are counting on the cross snowboard FIS World Cup from the 22th to the 24th of January 2016 and the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup in Titisee-Neustadt from the 11th to 13th of March 2016. We love these ski resorts renamed with a distinctive style, offering a high-level ski area while keeping the typical architecture of these regions, there reigns a real mountain atmosphere … Many hotels are offering a typical and quality accommodation.
