Todtnauer Hinterwald run


The Todtnauer Hinterwald run is the longest run in the Black Forest with a length of 9300 m and a difference in altitude of 736 m.

Starting point of the Hinterwald run to Todtnau is the Grafenmatt-Höchst (1346m). The best way to get there is with the modern Rothausbahn from Fahl. There is also a bus stop right next to the train station, so you can use public transport to return after departure.

The descent is not an official piste, is not always rolled and is therefore not specially secured. You use it at your own risk.

After starting at Grafenmatt-Höchst, you pass the Herzogenhorn performance center and turn right at the bell guide to Todtnau.

If the conditions allow it, it is advisable to squat at full throttle from here. At the Röslehütte it is a little uphill and the skis brakes automatically.

After the short sliding passage, you slide to the Bernauer Kreuz. In summer, the Bernauer Kreuz is the turning point for a number of hiking trails with a refuge and barbecue area.

At the refuge, turn right to Todtnau. A rapid descent now follows to the Mollenbachhütte. The slide that now follows shows who has applied the right wax. If you made the wrong choice, you may have to push something. When the flat section is behind you, it's full steam ahead to Todtnau. When you arrive in Todtnau you can find it at the Poche or at the inn Feldberg bus stop.

Since 2005, the Todtnau Hinterwald Inferno has been taking place on this descent if the snow conditions allow. The race is run by the Todtnau Ski Club, the oldest ski club in Germany, and is one of the longest downhill races in Germany.
