Although renowned for its thick dense forest, wooded mountains and its tasty gateau desert, the Black Forest region of Germany is also home to colourful villages, historical towns and picturesque shimmering lakes that are well worth visiting on a scenic coach break.
The crystal clear waters of Schluchsee and Titisee are perfect places to simply sit back and take in the breath-taking scenery of the area. You may also like to view the picturesque landscape from the comfort of a gentle boat cruise too. On your coach break to the Black Forest you can also enjoy the charming city of Freiburg, where you can explore the many shops and cafes amongst its narrow curving streets. The city is also home to two of the region’s most distinguished buildings; its imposing medieval cathedral, which provides a lovely backdrop to the busy streets, and The Martinstor, the oldest of the two city gates which has been beautifully preserved and is an architectural delight.
The spa town of Baden-Baden is equally as idyllic with tree-lined avenues, delightful gardens and exclusive shopping boutiques dotted throughout the neo-baroque buildings. Here you may wish to take a break from the routines of daily life with a relaxing afternoon in the thermal spa. For the true Black Forest experience you can’t leave without sampling the delicious Black Forest gateau, made from chocolate cake, cream, sour cherries and Kirsch.
