Itinerary

Description

The Black Forest turns into a veritable winter wonderland at Christmas, with scenic forests and mountains covered in snow which, combined with the beautiful half-timbered towns and villages of neighbouring Alsace, provides an idyllic Christmas retreat.

Coach Itinerary

22nd December

Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France.

23rd December

Continue on to our hotel in Oberharmersbach, stopping en-route in Gengenbach, home to the world's largest advent calendar.

Christmas Eve – Triberg

We spend half a day in Triberg, a town that epitomises Black Forest charm, renowned for its cuckoo clocks and the highest waterfalls in Germany. The mouth-watering Black Forest Gateau can be savoured in many of Triberg’s cafés and restaurants and there are plenty of shops offering cuckoo clocks, woodcarvings, souvenirs as well as Black Forest ham and kirsch. 

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is one of leisure and celebration as we make the most of our hotel’s festive fare, including a traditional turkey lunch and a five-course candlelit dinner, followed by live music.


Boxing Day – Donaueschingen & Rottweil

Today we explore more of the beautiful Black Forest, famed for its charming towns and stunning scenery. We call at Donaueschingen, built at the confluence of the Danube’s two sources, as well as Rottweil, a lovely town admired for its unspoilt medieval Old Town lined with pretty gabled houses.

27th December –Strasbourg

We head to Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace. Surrounded by branches of the River Ill, the city has a beautifully-preserved centre with an imposing Gothic cathedral surrounded by cobbled squares while the Petite France quarter is home to half-timbered houses and picturesque canals.

Travel to our overnight hotel in Germany, stopping en-route in the ancient university city of Heidelberg. A light evening meal is included tonight.
