After leaving the town of Constanza with its likewise named lake, I headed towards the world-famous Black Forest. It took me ten days to reach the Westweg-Portal in Pforzheim, which marks the exit of this beautiful of Germany. Those ten days had it all: rain, snow, ice-cold nights, sunny temperatures, beautiful hiking-trails, soft hills and the highest point of the E1 in Germany. I saw tourist-towns and typical villages, I met nice and interested people and german middle-class snobism, I’ve slept in my tent, in huts, on camp-grounds and farm-houses. The Black Forest had it all!
