  • Day 1

    Regional departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to Belgium for an overnight stay.

  • Day 2 - Boppard & The Rhine Valley

    Today we head south to the quaint Rhineland town of Boppard also known as ‘the pearl of the Rhine’. Boppard has many historic buildings and an attractive riverside promenade which invites you for a relaxing stroll by the Rhine.

    From Boppard we travel south along the banks of the Rhine to the picturesque town of St. Goar, home to the world’s largest cuckoo clock. We have a short stop here before continuing to our hotel in the Black Forest for a four-night stay.

  • Day 3 - Free Time or Titisee & Schluchsee

    Today we enjoy a full-day optional excursion around the southern Black Forest. Enjoy time in the picturesque resort of Titisee, famed for the lake of the same name and its crystal clear waters. Admire the beautiful scenery or sample the local delicacies such as Black Forest gâteau.

    We continue to the larger and equally beautiful, yet lesser-known lake of Schluchsee. A haven for holidaymakers, Schluchsee offers pleasant woodland strolls and a bustling resort centre.

  • Day 4 - Triberg & Freiburg

    Our day begins with a scenic drive through the Black Forest region to the university town of Freiburg. Known for its historic old town and fine architecture, popular landmarks in the town include the ornate Freiburg Minster, with its 116 metre tall tower, and the old and new town halls. Freiburg is also known for the miniature canals which run through its streets. Known as ‘Bächle’ these waterways used to supply water to the town for industrial use, and it is said that those who step into the miniature canals are sure to visit Freiburg again.

    We then travel to Triberg, home to Germany’s highest waterfalls, and to the pilgrimage church of ‘Maria in der Tanne’. Renowned for its cuckoo clock tradition, Triberg’s carvers, clockmakers and clock shops help to shape the distinctive character of this charming town.
