Photographer's Note

As the setting of countless Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, the Black Forest happily plays up to its image as a land of cuckoo clocks, hefty half-timbered farmhouses and hill upon hill of dark evergreen forest.

But even brief exploration soon reveals more of the character of a region that’s part of the state of Baden-Württemberg but was shaped as much by its history as a long-disputed borderland between Germany, France and Switzerland – and where something of each is in evidence.

The photo shows a view down to village of Bechtersbohl from Medieval Castle Ruins at Küssaberg. Not a very typical Black Forest architecture, but it is also a part of Black Forest which is not very often captured by visitor’s cameras.

The Municipality of Küssaberg is located at the southernmost edge of the Black Forest, near the Swiss border.
