Nature in the Heart of Europe: The Black Forest

Breathtaking landscapes, centuries-old traditions and abundant wildlife: Germany's highest low mountain range offers more than just cuckoo clocks and the so-called Bollenhut, a traditional hat. The Black Forest with its idyllic nature lies in the heart of Europe.

In rich atmospheric images, the film portrays the Black Forest's abundant nature. We experience a forest, in which nature plays a big role and where many locals have found ways to harmonically combine tradition and modern times.
