Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our lovely resort today in the Black Forest.

Day 2 Rhine Falls & Schaffhausen 106km/66 mile round trip
Today we will board our coach and drive southwards into the most northerly region of Switzerland. Here we will experience the drama and beauty of the magnificent Rhine Falls, the largest waterfall in Europe. In the summer months, we can enjoy a 30 minute boat trip with an audio guide in English that departs from Schlössli Wörth and sails close to the central rock for which the Falls are also so famous. We may then board our coach and travel to the nearby medieval town of Schaffhausen. The houses of the pedestrianised Old Town are richly decorated with oriel windows and lavishly painted facades and it is these that have contributed to Schaffhausen’s reputation as the prettiest town in Switzerland. The iconic Munot Fortress towers above the town and can be seen for miles.

Day 3 Mainau & Constance 156km/97 mile round trip
Today we will drive towards Lake Constance and visit Mainau Island, known for its botanical gardens, the Castle of the Teutonic Order, its butterfly house and Palm House. We can enjoy a 90 minute guided walking tour of Mainau’s botanical treasures. In the afternoon, we board our coach and travel the short distance to Constance, a town of great historical relevance and the most important on Lake Constance.

Day 4 Bad Dürrheim Driver’s Day Off
Today, we will relax in our fabulous spa resort.

Day 5 Lake Titisee & Triberg 113km/70 mile round trip
Today we will visit the spa town on the north shore of Lake Titisee, one of Germany’s prettiest lakes, and join ‘The Titus’ (built as a replica of a Roman galley) for an enjoyable 25 minute cruise (June to Sept). We can then enjoy the town of Titisee-Neustadt before boarding our coach and continuing our circular drive to Triberg, known for its many traditional wood carving shops and cuckoo clocks. This vibrant town also boasts an informative Black Forest Museum and a picturesque 17th century church, both of which are worth visiting before we make our way back to our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast this morning, we will bid a fond farewell to the staff at our lovely hotel and begin our journey home.
