The hike in the Black Forest leads from the Aha train station first to the banks of the Schluchsee. After a few meters we cross the road and hike steadily uphill on well-paved forest paths through a typical Black Forest landscape with a fantastic view of the Schluchsee, which we slowly leave behind.
The Schluchsee is the largest lake in the Black Forest. As a reservoir with its mighty dam wall, it is also an important energy store for the region. Depending on the weather and electricity requirements, the level of the lake can fluctuate enormously or the amount of lake water can increase sharply overnight due to the water being pumped up. At the same time, the lake offers good conditions for water sports due to its size and slightly curved shape with various bays.
We come into the forest, where benches and shelters invite us to take a rest. The path soon turns to the Zweiseenblick. From this path you can always enjoy extraordinary views of the Feldberg and the Herzogenhorn from very unusual perspectives. At the edge of a high moor we continue to the rocks of the Zweiseenblick and enjoy the view of Titisee and Schluchsee from 1292 m.
From here it goes steeply downhill via the Gamseck-Steig until we come across a forest path that takes us to Altglashütten.
In 1634, the Prince of Fürstenberg leased uninhabited land to three families of glassblowers, who set up a glassworks. You will learn a lot about glass blowers and glass bearers. How was glass made? What did it take and what did the Black Forest offer? What effects did the glassworks have on the settlement of the Black Forest? How was the glass marketed and what did customer orientation look like back then?
Altglashütten also has the highest cemetery chapel in Germany and many old clapboard courtyards. There are numerous rest stops in Altglashütten.
From Altglashütten there are comfortable hiking trails to the Windgfällweiher, which, together with the Schluchsee, is of great importance for the regional electricity supply.
From here it is not far to the Aha train station.
