Winter in Black Forest, Germany

The weather is getting colder and colder now. Sometimes, we are already reaching sub-zero temperature.   Our temperature is getting up to  -5 deg Celsius. This is not really so bad compared to other parts in Europe. Last week was  milder because we  had around 2 to 8 degrees Celsius.

Last December 2010 was my first  sight of the Black Forest. We did not had a trip there but  we only passed this part of wooded mountain range in Baden-Württemberg, southwestern Germany. Germans called it Schwarzwald in  which  “Schwarz”  means  black  and  “Wald”  means forest.   I am not quite sure if our driver made a detour  as we were on our way to Strasbourg from Zurich,  Switzerland.  I tried to look on google maps and from Zurich to Strasbourg  will only take around two and  a half  hours. I guessed it us over three hours  to reach our destination that time.

Have you also  heard about Black forest cake? I am not quite sure if this is related to this place in Germany. It is said that it is called Black Forest because the
Romans who referred to the thickly forested mountains there as Silva Nigra or Silva Carbonara (Latin for “Black Forest”). It is  because of  the dense growth of conifers in the forest which   blocked out most of the light inside the forest.

Even though, it was  along trip, I was happy that we did passed this way because I was able to see these lovely images in which I thought I can only see it in postcards. That was indeed a beautiful countryside trip seeing this winter scenery in Black Forest. I wish to visit it in the future.

These images were taken last December  2010.  I took these photos  as we were inside the buy passing these  breath-taking landscape.
