Black Forest

Distance from base: 350 km

The Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald) is a large, forested mountain range in the state of Baden-Württemberg in southwest Germany. It is bounded by the Rhine valley tot he west and south. Ist highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 metres (4,898 ft) above sea level. The region is roughly oblong in shape, with a length of 160 kilometres (100 miles) and breadth of up to 50 km (30mi).
Historically, the area was known for ore deposits, which led to mining featuring heavily in the local economy. In recent years, tourism has became the primary industry.
The region is known for many beautiful hiking trails and breathtaking lakes such as the Titisee and Schluchsee.
You may want to visit Baden-Baden with ist thermal baths or picuresque old towns such as Altensteig, Dornstetten, Freiburg im Breisgau and Gernsbach. Other tourist attractions are the Triberg Waterfalls, and the Open Air Museum at Vogtsbauernhof.

Tour 1: Highest waterfalls & oldest glass blowing workshop

Our first stop will be Triberg, where we will visit Germany’s highest waterfalls. The steady light noise of the waterfalls is part of Triberg. Foaming and roaring the water plunges 163 metres down the river called “Gutach”. After this breathtaking view of the waterfalls, you have free time to get lunch and explore Triberg.
Visit one of the many shops which sell Cuckoo Clocks, or get the full experience by visiting the “Eble ClockPark” where you will find the largest Cuckoo Clock in the world. The timepiece is 15 feet in height, weighs 6 tons. The clock chimes every 30 minutes. Of cause where you can find the largest, there is also the smallest masterpiece not far behind. Being only 5.12 inches tall and 5.51 wide it will easily fit into your hand. For those who are looking for a taste of the Black Forest I can highly recommend to try some of the Triberger Fichtenschinken, Triberg’s version of the famous Black Forest ham. As for a sweet dessert, you may want to have a piece of the delicious Black Forest Cake.
In the afternoon we will visit the only glass blowing workshop in the Black Forest which still manucatures mouth blown glass. You can watch glassblowers and grinders at their work. Have a look at the engraving studio and take a stroll through the large glass world presenting a great selection of decorative articles and gift ideas for a perfectly laid table.
