We had a half a day to spend in black forest region so we decided to visit Lake Titisee. Trains leave every half an hour from Freiburg and it takes 42minutes to reach the Titisee station. We had expected to pass through the Black Forest on out train trip but the route is nothing of that sort. The lake itself is around 10 minutes away from the train station & you need to walk towards the right after you step out & the station building is behind you. Titisee is a very touristy destination, commercialised with shops selling souvenirs & cheap goods. there are several places to eat ranging from small bakeries to proper restaurants. Its that one street by the lake full of shops that defines the place. We walked down the street, did not take the boat ride as it was not in the least bit tempting. Try Bergsee for lunch, their Homemade Black Forest Gateau was the highlight of our trip. In spite of it all one has to admit that there is a certain natural beauty that the lake exudes with the black forest on one side of it.

Took only 90 minutes to walk fully around the lake. Pleasant views if not entirely spectacular. Black Forest area is 'alpine' in its scenery so very pleasant. Lots of small boats to hire on the lake but not a lot to see that cannot be seen from its perimeter.

Visited on a coach tour of the Black Forest region. A nice change from the mountains and towns. Lovely to walk around and then have a meal and coffee at one of the lovely cafés and bars. Some tourist shops had souvenirs etc to browse or buy and we all enjoyed our afternoon.

Little town with beautiful scenery, lovely well-designed buildings and pure beauty of nature sites. A kind of place you would like to have a house here...if you love to walk and see, not go shopping (well, even there are many local shops, sightseeing is still more interesting), here is highly recommended. It may take you 2 hours to wander around the town and take a ton of photos.
FYI, I was there in last June. The weather was very nice: sunny and warm.
