Location: Oberried

Oberried is located at the gates of Freiburg and is picturesquely situated in the mountains of the Black Forest. St. Wilhelm, Zastler and Hofsgrund belong to the municipality.

How to find Oberried

The center of Oberried is located in the southern Dreisamtal, from where the associated farms stretch up to the highest mountains in the Black Forest. The Oberrieder Tal and the little river Brugga are just as much a part of it as the “Notschrei” pass. To the east you will find the Zastlertal with the Osterbach and the St. Wilhelmer Tal in the direction of the Feldberg. Hofsgrund, also part of the municipality, is located in the hollow that formed south of the Schauinsland peak.

Picturesquely embedded in the Black Forest

The municipality of Oberried stretches from 440 meters up to 1.428 meters. Lots of forest, meadows and pastures create a contemplative silence that is becoming increasingly popular with tourists. Ski and hiking areas are a must for everyone who wants to be active on vacation, and that at any time of the year.

What the hiker encounters...

are not only wonderful natural spectacles and views, but also, for example, the Pirmin-Kleiser monument. It can be found on the watershed between Zastlerstal and St. Wilhelmstal south of Oberried. The namesake was long the Landlord of the Erlenbacher Hütte and Herder of the Erlenbach pasture cooperative.

A very special experience awaits little hikers in the district of St. Wilhelm. The 4,9 km long trail starts at the school there Wilderness adventure trail "Home game for the wild"

The alley farm mill, which is more than 250 years old, is definitely worth seeing. The mill stood still for a long time, but it is thanks to many hard-working hands that the citizens' association, which has done a great job, was able to successfully complete the renovation. The loving mill room allows tourists to immerse themselves in times past, when there were 15 grain mills in the woodcutting community of Zastler, which were operated by water power. Viewings are possible today by prior arrangement.

"Glück auf" in the museum mine

Also a museum mine is available in the municipality of Oberried. It is called “Schauinsland” and that is what it is largest mine in the Black Forest. People have dug for ore here for over 800 years and used it to build 22 floors underground.

Fun not only for children...

is the Steinwasenpark, the magical family park in the Black Forest, which is also located in Oberried. The world's largest adventure rope bridge allows visitors to "float" 218 meters above the valley floor over a length of 30 meters.
Summer toboggan run, river splash, glacier lightning and a breathtaking roller coaster are just a few of the highlights that your kids will be talking about for a long time.

Contemplative visits

The monastery church of the Coronation of the Virgin Mary is reserved for the more tranquil holiday season. After trials and tribulations, the monastery and the church got their present form around 1730. In addition to the parish church of the Coronation of the Virgin Mary, the premises of the complex also house the parish and the town hall of Oberried. Surrounded by glorious greenery, this feast for the eyes is highly recommended.

Other sights include the Gassenbauernhof mill, the monument to the Englishman or the Schniederlihof in the district of Hofsgrund. Monastery library and Barbara gallery, the Alemannic week and the Rappenecker Hut as well as the "concerts in the monastery" - there is much that invites you to Oberried.
