Activities for all seasons
A wide range of leisure activities can be enjoyed in St. Märgen. The luxury holiday flat lies only 250 m from the Pfisterwald nature discovery park with its numerous recreational and leisure facilities.
In winter, as a result of its location at an altitude of between 850 and 1,100 metres above sea level, St. Märgen offers excellent conditions for winter sports enthusiasts or those simply seeking a relaxing break. A romantic walk through the snowy forest is an experience not to be missed!
Enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and valleys and explore this delightful and varied landscape with its forests, waterfalls, meadows, pastures and centuries-old farmhouses. The local walking association (the Schwarzwaldverein) ensures that all footpaths, including long-distance ones, are very well signed. Information boards enable you to design your own routes. And don’t miss the nature trail in the forest near St. Märgen.
