Sledging at Feldberg

Last week I’ve organized a hike trip to Feldberg, the highest peak in Black Forest. It was such a warm and sunny day, that the temperature was above 25 degrees Centigrade. It was April, but it was like in the hottest few days of July. Actually, it is never so hot and such good weather in Black Forest. And definitely not in the first days of April! Sometimes it is even colder than in the northern Alps. There are a lot of days when on Feldberg (about 1450 m high) it is colder than on Zugspitze, the highest peak in the German Alps at almost 3000. The day was so hot, that we even hiked with bathing suits and barefoot. It was a great pleasure.

You can imagine how surprised we were, when we’ve seen that there is still some snow on the slopes of the peak.

There were even some guys snowboarding.

So, we decided to do use the great weather and nature play and have a lot of fun, by doing something very unique – barefoot and bathing suit sledging in the snow. We hat no sledges, but we were smart enough to create such. Just enjoy the pictures as we’ve enjoyed the fun 🙂

At the end we were so tired, that we’ve done some sun bathing in the snow. A great cold-warm feeling for the whole body.

And now I have a good tan from the beginning of April 🙂
