  • Christmas Day - Black Forest

    Merry Christmas! Today we included scenic morning drive through the rolling mountains and picturesque forest of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest).

    Taking its name from the thick covering of evergreens that almost absorb the light, with miles upon miles of breathtaking scenery, the Black Forest’s winter setting is almost as iconic as its name-sake gateau.

    Following our scenic drive, we continue to the pretty lakeside village of Titisee, to admire the crystal clear waters and take in the fresh mountain air.

    Whilst in Titisee, we will enjoy an included lunch in a local restaurant before heading back to the hotel for dinner.

Here you can see how the shopkeepers elaborately decorate their shop windows to depict a fairytale. You can discover the story by following the windows in a certain order.
