¤ Black Forest, Germany | Green nature

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald, pronounced [ˈʃvaʁt͡svald]) is a wooded mountain range in Baden-Württemberg, southwestern Germany. It is bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south. The highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 metres (4,898 ft). The region is almost rectangular with a length of 160 km (99 mi) and breadth of up to 60 km (37 mi). The name Schwarzwald (German for "Black Forest") derives from the Romans who referred to the thickly forested mountains there as Silva Nigra or Silva Carbonara[citation needed] (Latin for "Black Forest") because the dense growth of conifers in the forest blocked out most of the light inside the forest.

Hallo Adem, hallo Heinz - Danke! Im tiefen, schwarzen Wald plätscherte dieses Bächlein. Wir haben unweit von dieser Stelle in einer Hütte mit befreundeten Familien und vielen Kindern ein tolles, geselliges, verlängertes Wochenende erlebt. Mir gefällt hier auch das satte Grün, die Stille und das ins Bild führende Bächlein. Viele Grüße - Bernd
