Hello, Haiterbach — thank you for bringing me back to the Schwarzwald. It’s been a while, and I’ve missed you.
What really surprised me the most was Haiterbach has an indoor swimming pool. Weird, right? It’s all about being outdoors here, and trust me, the place has bunches of things to do in the fresh air.

It doesn’t matter the season, either, because you’ll find everything from cross-country skiing trails, to miniature golf courses. A super awesome way to see this region is to take a flashlight hike — that’s right, night hiking.
You might want to save visits to some of Haiterbach’s sites for the daylight, though. You won’t want to miss all the detail at Unterschwandorf Castle (the balcony overlooking the courtyard is totally romantic looking); nor would you want to skimp on seeing the thousand year old chapel in Oberschwandorf.
Beihingen’s one of the best villages to visit, its Heritage Museum is right on the Dorfplatz (only open May to October); and the 12th century Church of St. Lawrence is not to be missed either. And get this… Beihingen’s old bakery offers courses to teach you baking. Yummy, Black Forest Cake… can I have coffee with that?
Sorry, got distracted there for a minute. ;-)
What was I about to tell you? Yes, about the lovely half-timbered houses and the Mary Chapel in the village of Unterschwandorf. For a chance to see a totally small village, come visit Altnuifra — it’s mostly farms with only about 50 people living here.
Whether you visit one or all of Haiterbach’s villages, you’ll want to be here for some of their cultural events. The Martinimarkt is nice in November, the Kuckucksmarkt takes place in June, and then there are the Spring Concerts. Right, can’t forget about the Straßenfest (a 2-day affair, no less), and the Waldachfest in July.
While I was happy to say hello to Haiterbach — I’m sorry to say goodbye, just as I know you will be too.
