The Black Forest is a heavily forested area in Germany home to many magical creatures such as bowtruckles and Erklings.[1] It is also home to a broomstick manufacturing company Ellerby and Spudmore.[2]

It was believed that Quirinus Quirrell met vampires in the Black Forest while travelling.[3] In 1994, shortly after Harry, Hermione and the Weasleys travelled via Portkey to the Quidditch World Cup, Basil told them that they needed to move out of the way because a big party would arrive from the Black Forest shortly.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • For centuries the Black Forest has been a haven for vacationing nobility and working artists and writers.
