Black Forrest 

Feldberg - August 2012

The Feldberg in the Black Forest is the highest mountain in Baden-Württemberg, and the highest in Germany outside of the Alps.The local municipality of Feldberg was named after the mountain. From where comes the name "Black Forrest"? The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region.
