A Fairytale in the Black Forest

Our fantastic packaged tour takes us into the beautiful Black Forest, the setting for many a Grimm Brothers' fairytale, where picturesque villages full of half timbered houses dot the landscape and cuckoo clocks keep an eye on the time...
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel before dinner.

Day 2 Rhine Falls & Schaffhausen
Today we board our coach and drive south into the most northerly region of Switzerland. Here we will experience the drama and beauty of the magnificent Rhine Falls, one of the largest waterfalls 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 then make our way to the nearby medieval town of Schaffhausen, known as the prettiest town in Switzerland, where the houses of the pedestrianised Old Town are richly decorated with oriel windows and lavishly painted facades. The iconic Munot Fortress towers above the town and can be seen for miles.

Day 3 Mainau & Constance
Today we 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 enjoy a 90 minute guided walking tour of Mainau’s botanical treasures before we 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 relax in our fabulous spa resort.

Day 5 Lake Titisee & Triberg
Today we visit 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 before exploring the town of Titisee- Neustadt itself. We then continue our circular drive to Triberg, known for its 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.

Day 6 Departure
After breakfast we begin our journey home.
