National park region

Nationalpark Schwarzwald
The Rench flows from the Black Forest heights on the Kniebis at 915 m to the Rhine. 57 km far. Bad Peterstal-Griesbach is located in the upper Renchtal, right next to the rushing river. The wooded mountains come close to each other here, mostly steep uphill. From 400 m to 1000 m, into the Black Forest National Park.

Black Forest National Park

With a size of 10,062 hectares, the Black Forest National Park extends in the northern Black Forest along the Black Forest Scenic Road. From Bad Peterstal-Griesbach you can get to the Alexanderschanze in 20 minutes by car. An ideal starting point for exploring the National Park.

The Black Forest National Park is a unique protected area for the native flora and fauna - and at the same time a fascinating space for discoveries. Visitors can approach the diversity on adventure trails, but also on guided tours with the national park rangers and other events, whether alone or as a group.
