The Harry Potter Canon

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 in a few minutes (GF7). This party was travelling via Portkey, then, from Germany – where the Black Forest has for centuries been a haven for vacationing nobility and working artists and writers.

The Black Forest is also home to Ellerby and Spudmore, a broom company that produces the Tinderblast and the Swiftstick (QA9), as well as the natural habitat of the Erkling (FB).
