Where modern times meet Black Forest legends
This Black Forest day trip combines two of the most popular destinations of the region.
Your Black Forest tour will start with a scenic drive to the famous spa town Baden Baden. At the beginning of the 19th century the rich and famous people from all over Europe discovered Baden Baden and the elegant spa town soon became their favorite summer retreat. The splendid buildings in town still echo this sparkling era. On our Black Forest tour, we will visit the most important sites like the drinking hall where you can taste the waters from the mineral wells and the Festspielhaus which is the largest opera and concert house in Germany. A true highlight of your Black Forest tour is our visit to the Casino, regarded as one of the most beautiful casinos in the world. Here we will enjoy a guided tour.
Then it is time for shopping. Baden Baden is renowned as Germany’s capital of millionaires and boasts of many high-end shopping facilities. We are happy to accompany you during this time if you wish.
Your Black Forest day trip also includes a typical three course lunch.
Your Black Forest tour then continues to Lake Mummelsee on the most scenic “Höhenstrasse”. Surrounded by steep and heavily forested peaks, Lake Mummelsee was once quite isolated and is now a popular place for locals and tourists to enjoy the unique nature of the Black Forest. During our journey we will learn about the Black Forest yesterday, today and tomorrow. At Lake Mummelsee, we take you on a little hike around the lake where we will focus on the copious legends of area like the mystery of the lake king who is said to live in a crystal palace at the bottom of the lake. Later, you will have the opportunity to learn about cuckoo clock making before we start heading back for Freiburg.
This is one of our most popular Black Forest tours and available all year round.
