The Schluchsee is surrounded by numerous walking trails in the local area. The entire length of the shoreline, about 18 km long, is walkable, mostly level and suitable for prams. From May to October the walks may be combined with boat trips on the pleasure cruiser St. Nikolaus. It lasts an hour and leave from the town of Schluchsee. In general, this lake is so quiet and peaceful that the neighbor Titisee. From here we wanted to go to St.Blasien, but for lack of time went straight to Todtnau.
