One of my favorite things to do in Oberkirch is to take the 7 km culinary wine walk. The tour takes you past beautiful vineyards and to the ruins of castle Schauenburg. While taking the walk, you’ll get to enjoy a delicious 4-course meal with perfect matching wines.
If you’d rather relax in town, you are sure to enjoy the atmosphere of Old Town. Take snapshots of its historic half-timbered houses, remains of old fortifications and city walls, fountains, monuments, and many more symbols of bygone days.
Old Town is a popular meeting place for families and friends to get together and enjoy food and drink against a picture perfect backdrop of churchyards and gardens.
There are many outdoor activities you can take part in while you are staying in Oberkirch. You can do everything from swimming or basking along the side of a pool in the local water park, to hiking one of the many orchard trails or wine walks, to cycling along mountain trails, and much more. You’ll never get bored with the wide variety of outdoor activities available (although you might get fatigued!).
One of the other interesting things about Oberkirch is the local farmers markets. It is a great feeling to meet the local merchants and farmers and get a feel for the small-town lifestyle. You won’t be disappointed by the taste of the delicious fresh produce you’ll find while browsing the market. Be sure to bring your appetite with you wherever you go!
Oberkirch is located in the Ortenau region (which I really love), and also very close to the mystic Black Forest. If you are looking for an authentic Black Forest cuckoo clock, you’ll be able to find plenty to choose from at any of the local shops.
There are also museums and historical sites with interesting things to see and information to learn about the Schwarzwald and its surrounding areas.
