Join us on one of our Black Forest Village Trip to Gengenbach in the picturesque valley of the river Kinizg.
With its marvelous houses and romantic little lanes, Gengenbach has even attracted the attention of Hollywood: many outdoor scenes of the 2005 movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” were filmed here.
Life in the Black Forest Village
On a walking tour through this picturesque small Black Forest Village you will learn about how tax laws affected the way burghers built their houses, how people dealt with daily concerns like garbage & disease and why half-timbered houses were a clever mode of construction. We will have a look at the lives of knights and monks as well as merchants and beggars in a Black Forest town.
At the heart of this Black Forest Village – The Benedictine Monastry
Learn how the majestic Benedictine monastery became the nucleus of this Black Forest village and how it rose to the venerable position of a free imperial city in the Middle Ages. Let us enchant you on this Black Forest tour exploring the pearl of the Kinzigtal.
This tour is available all year round.
