A beautiful spread of emerald over the German territories possibly attributes the beautiful forests a Goth-style name, true to the architectural trends of Germany, but don’t let the perception hold you back from experiencing this paradise of a place abundant with verdant beauty and spectacular natural bounty.

But do you wonder, where does the name of Black Forest come to be so? The lush green trees covering a canopy of greenery over the mountains definitely make for a confusing contrast between the name and how the forests actually happen to be. The Black Forest is abundant with pine trees which gives the mountains a dark view when looked at from away. Also, the neighboring sloping hills that cast their dark reflections over the mountains further attribute the darkness of these enticing Black Forest. Despite the thick cover of shadows and large concentration of pine trees, a town called Freudenstadt (Freudenstadt vacation rentals | Freudenstadt travel guide) located in the heart of the forested area asserts the place to receive a greater exposure of sun-shine more than any other place in the whole of Germany.

These Black Forest are definitely a priced-possession to the Germany, and for the purpose of wood-cutting, the government maintains very strict laws to carry out any tree-cutting task under the stringent eye of the forest department. After the trees were cut down, the resultant situation led to the emergency of replanting trees as this step brought negative repercussions on the scope of tourism in Black Forest in Germany. Also, the environmental hazards led to this greening step, no matter how valuable the timber of Black Forest is.

The many cottage like homes in the winding lanes of a town surpassing the confines of time is what earns the place its due elegant charm. The forests can also refresh the toddler tales of werewolves and witches that may appear from behind a tree on their magical flying broom vehicles. Though, the tales also have some good creatures like the dwarfs to fight over the good over evil. The perfect goth style castles and the spectacular vineyards is another attraction that gives the place its peculiar charm.
