After a review of our current knowledge about higher-dimensional black holes, I will discuss some problems that arise due to novel types of black holes that do not arise in four dimensions. In particular, the absence of uniqueness, and the existence of horizons with the geometry of a product space seem to require new ideas and tools in order to achieve a better characterization and classification of black holes.
