Sinister, fanciful, mysterious and mythical; the German Black Forest is bountiful in moss, pine, oak, beech, spruce and elm trees. Located in a large mountain range in Southwest Germany (Schwarzwald in German). The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region.
