I was living in this area here described for nearly 40 years. for me it is one of the most beautiful areas in whole germany. What is also so cool that we are so close to the very beautiful city Basel in Switzerland (60 km from Freiburg - it is really worth a visit! And also the Elsass (Alsace), a close area in France - what is also sooooooooo wonderful, with the very beautiful cities Colmar (60 km from Freiburg), Strassburg and loads of sweet villages! Also the Vogesen-mountains (Voges) - actually i love them even mor than the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) itself because their are much more wild-romantic.

---But what is not true, that as a tourist u can travel for free with our trains - i am quite sure this is valid only for handicaped people and persons who accompany them. BUT: even if u dont stay for a month we have for the area around Freiburg a monthly ticket for about 55 Euro. This ticket includes all kinds odf public transports - with it u can reach all of the places desrcibed on this site. Another point worth to be mentioned if u use German Highways with a car: The petrol stations on the Highway are much more expensive than the usual ones (often until 10 cents per litre). But many of these usual petrol stations are close to exits on the highway - they are called AUTOHOF, their ads are posted on the highways signs some km before the exit...

[About the free travelling]
That's what locals told us. But to be on the save side, I adjusted that part of the article. Thanks for you input!

Since I have been living in Schwarzwald not so long time, I cannot contribute a lot for that article. I have read it and found it reliable in general. Because I have never been in Hinterzarten, I cannot say anything about that house, maybe because I have never been interested in wheelchair facilities. But in generally, the people in wheelchair meet in Germany much less stress and problems with accommodation, comparing to other countries.

I can say also, the Schwarzwald and surroundings are very pleasant and charming places, Freiburg (where I live) is one of the most visited cities in Germany and Europe. It's really worth to visit here.

I was wondering is it possible to go camping there? and what good restaurants or cafeterias could you recommend?

Don't know about camping. And as a wheelchair user a lot of restaurants are not accesible, so I'm not he person who can answer your question correctly.

There are an enormous amount of restaurants and hotel in the area. There is a nice and cheap German style restaurant called the Mühlencafé between Hinterzarten and Breitnau. I had diner several times in Feiburg, but only outsite on terraces. Very nice!!
