Black Forest in Germany

The Black Forest is a mountainous area located in the southwest of Germany in the Land of Baden Württemberg. The Black Forest extends from the so called border triangle the area where the the borders of Switzerland meet with France and Germany in a northerly direction for about 160 km along the Rhine pit. The river Kinzig represents the boundary between the northern Black Forest, called Nordschwarzwald, and the Middle Black Forest, Schwarzwald Mittlerer while the river Dreisam separates the southern Black Forest, called Südschwarzwald, which has the highest peaks of the relief.

The village museum in Gutach Vogtsbauernhof is the oldest open air museum of Baden Württemberg. It shows how the life of the inhabitants of the Black Forest was between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. The museum was founded in 1963 starting from the Farm Vogtsbauerhof which is in place since 1611 and furnished with original tools of the past centuries. Other farms were added, typical of other regions of the Black Forest which were removed from their place of origin and mounted identically in the museum forming an entire small village.
