Kirchzarten has what it takes to truly disengage you from your cares and put you back together into a new person. Or, this is what you do to yourself when you get here.
It really is that relaxing as you can see from the happy looks on the faces of the dogs that are welcomed into the local camping site — a spot they would normally be politely excluded from.
While on the topic of camping you just have to bring yourself, it’s all taken care. So, kick off your shoes and jump into the pool, settle into your comfy caravan, room, or holiday home, or just hang loose on a hammock.
Kirchzarten has you ideally located for all sorts of outdoor activity if that’s what you’re looking for. Cycling, hiking, mountain biking, or even skating — it’s all possible here. Remember you’re in the vicinity of the massive Black Forest. Just imagine the breathtaking views all around as you go about your chosen sport.
When you’re out there keep an eye out for the Pfeiferberg formation in the shape of a camel’s hump on Mount Pfeifer. I’m sure someone’s going to point it out to you anyway. Then again, feel free to point him or her to mygermancity.com, where you got this info in the first place. ;-)
Kirchzarten’s architecture is another striking attraction. The 9th century St. Gall Parish Church is noted not just for its famous bell tower but also for the storks that nest there. These regular church-goers attract quite a lot of attention and nobody leaves without taking pictures.
Another historic site is the Giersberg Chapel dating back to the 18th century. The St. John’s Chapel, an attraction in its own right, has the added excitement of an herb garden.
Kirchzarten’s Town Hall has ample history of its own. Apparently, it used to be an old castle. So don’t forget to explore and find out nuggets for yourself.
If you’re into art you might want to check out the Kurhaus which houses the work of Richard Engelmann.
All that sport and fresh air is bound to have you look for cafes and restaurants which, fortunately, are located all over. You have a variety to choose from, but of course, the wise thing to do is go for the local food which will hit the spot nicely.
