    Oh, I forgot all about the Titisee! We used to go there when I was young because my godmother had moved there. So nice to see some pics on your blog of that area!! By the way, even in German Titisee sounds kind of funny. Not quite as funny as to English speakers, but it sounds crazy cutesy and at the same time of course the first part is similar to the same thing it means in English.

      Good to know it sounds off in German too. It is so touristy, but a neat place to go and get out of the city.

        Titisee is funny enough, but did you know that there’s the Pillersee in Austria? Ok, this takes an advanced level of German 😉

          That is totally cool. I had to look up the word, but seriously “Pissing Lake”? Great, but I will not swimmer or eat fish from it, thanks.

            Actually you might even call it the pee-pee lake…
            It’s picturesque though, maybe that’s their way of keeping the tourists away 😉

            I like that better. May be another sign I will have to seek out to see.

    OK. In wish list.
    As a rule we rent a car and trip around all region.

      Cool. There are a lot of things in this area when you have a car. I don’t so I just do what I can from the train.

    Beautiful area. I can definitely see the appeal of a place like this, especially for someone like me. I love mountains and lakes so this is an ideal location. Too bad it is so well known and touristy as I typically don’t like those areas. However, this is the type of place I would like to check out – during the week, in the early Fall, when there aren’t as many people there. 🙂

      It is well known among the Germans and local French. I was quite surprised to the see the group of Japanese. It is a touristy place, but still worth seeing. There is another lake called Schluchsee further up that is bigger so the tourists are more spread out and less noticeable.

    I think we’re going to have to come back to the Black Forest and explore more places like this – hopefully in better weather! I love paddleboating…looks like there are so many places to see in the region. So wonderful meeting you last night – all the best! If you and Ali are ever travelling to wherever we land, please look us up =)

      Yes, come back. I am noticing that it is now sunny, just for your trip out of town. Summer is a good time to come visit. There are more things up in the forest and around here that are cool to see.

      Of course, we will look you up. I still want to get your tips on NZ.
