Experience the Black Forest sportingly

The spa town and health resort of Bad Peterstal / Griesbach is situated in the upper valley of the river Rench. Here you enjoy the very best of Black Forest air and ideal prerequisites for splendid walking tours.

In particular, we would like to recommend to you two of them, namely the premium public footpaths “Griesbacher Wiesensteig” and “Peterstaler Schwarzwaldsteig”. Both will lead you through the finest landscape that is to be enjoyed in the Rench valley.

Bad Griesbacher Wiesensteig

This public footpath will take you to the wild and romantic headwaters of the river Rench. It is 11 kilometres long, entailing a difference in altitude of some 350 metres. On your way, you may stop off at two inns, ‘Renchtalhütte’ and ‘Herbstwasen’. At the ‘Haus Wilde Rench’, you will be invited to try both various alcoholic drinks and the local mineral water.
