The Belchenland region (500 – 1414 m high above sea-level) is situated in the south of the Black Forest, approximately in the triangle between Freiburg, Titisee and Basle.
Years ago the towns and villages Aitern, Böllen, Fröhnd, Schönau, Schönenberg, Tunau, Utzenfeld and Wembach decided to form the holiday region Belchenland.
The ultimate hint for a holiday in the Nature Park Southern Black Forest!
The Belchenland region has a lot to offer for skiers and snowboarders – slopes with degrees of difficulties between easy and medium are available in several variations.
Those who want more variety or more difficult slopes can find these at the various lifts in the direct vicinity, for example in Wieden or on the Feldberg.
The conditions for cross-country skiing and skating are (due to the heights between 500-1414 m) ideal in the holiday region of Belchenland.
There is a network of around 38 km of ski and skating runs at over 1100 m high at the Hohtann cross-country ski centre alone.
During the high season there is also a night run.
This run is illuminated every Thursday from 18:30 until 21:00.
The ski run and snow telephone hotline can be found by calling: +49 7673 273
Tobogganers are also catered for, in fact an unused road now forms the toboggan run, over 2.5km of pure toboggan run.
