Still, if you’re planning to spend some time here, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how pretty the town is, especially in winter when the snow falls and all ends up looking like a picture perfect postcard.
There’s a good deal to do if you’re looking for some sort of athletic activity, with a golf course, tennis, swimming, and nature walks which you’ll be able to take advantage of when the weather is a bit warmer.
Additionally, both the Alps and the Black Forest are right there at your fingertips making for some great winter fun and some awesome photo-opps! And, Eichner Lake is just about as quiet and peaceful as you can imagine a lake to be.
Schopfheim has been around since 807 but archeological digs show that it has been around since at least the Dark Ages of the 6th century. The City Museum in the Old Town section, just behind the Medieval Church of St. Michael, will give you an idea of what life was like in those good old days. The museum even houses medieval grave boards.
One of the more out of the ordinary museums is the Teddy Bear Museum a.k.a. Bärenstube, having a whopping 300 teddy bears out on display!
For real breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, the Hohe Möhr is a 30 meter high observation tower with views of the Swiss Alps. From the top of the Hohe Flum, you’ll be able to see the stunning Black Forest and Swiss Alps.
Tip: If you’d like to bring home a wonderful piece of Schopfheim, be sure to stop at the little glass shop in the center of town.
