Escorted Rail Tours to Titisee

A spa town at the shore of Lake Titisee

Lake Titisee is said to have been named after the Roman Emperor Titus. It is fed by meltwater from the Feldberg Glacier, which is held in place by glacial moraine. The River Gutach flows from the lake on which the spa town of Titisee stands, today a part of the town of Titisee-Neustadt.

The health resort at Titisee was one of the first such resorts established after the Höllental railway line opened up the southern Black Forest in 1887. In summer, swimming and boating are popular activities and boat tours have been run on the lake since 1909.

The lake is known to freeze over in winter and was used as a landing strip for light aircraft for many years. However, when a tractor clearing snow from the airstrip fell through the ice, taking the driver to his death, the winter airstrip was closed forever.

Water sports and walks
Lake Titisee lies 2,789 feet (850 metres) above sea level, is more than a mile long long, just over half-a-mile wide and approximately 131 feet (40 metres) deep. Lake Titisee is popular throughout the summer and is often full of activity, including swimming, sailing, windsurfing and pedaloing. It is also an idyllic spot for a gentle stroll along the waterfront, passing small villages and farmhouses that are dotted along the lakeshore, with the lush wooded slopes of the surrounding mountains rising up behind them.
