From Strasbourg, a full day trip to the Black Forest in Germany
Leave Strasbourg and cross the Border into Germany to visit some one of the most beautiful regions of the area with your English speaking tour guide.

Departing from the city of Strasbourg, take part in a small group shared day trip that will take you to one of the most emblematic regions of Germany. At first, you will meet your English speaking guide in a centrally located meeting point in Strasbourg. After having welcomed everyone, your driver/guide will summarize the day for you. It will then be time to board your comfortable and recent air-conditioned minivan to depart for today's destination: the Black Forest area.

Visit the town of Baden-Baden
At first you will cross the nearby border of France into Germany leaving the Grand Est region and entering the state of Baden Württemberg. The Black Forest is a wooded mountain range bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south. The highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 meters (4,898 feet). The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region. The Black Forest gateau and the cuckoo clocks originate from this region.

Reach the town of Baden Baden, nestled at the foot of the black forest. The city has attracted royalty, the rich and celebrities over the centuries. Follow your guide and discover the numerous architectural splendors and magnificent villas that are lined along the Lichtentaler Allee. After this short walking tour, admire the landscape as your tour follows the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse. Here, the numerous viewpoints and belvedere will allow you to take in stunning scenes of the Upper Rhine Valley of the Vosges mountain range of France in the distance.

Discover Mummelsee Lake
Arrive at pretty Mummelsee lake where you will have some free time for personal discovery and lunch. With a circumference of 800 m, a depth of 17 m and an elevation of 1,036 m, Mummelsee is the largest, deepest and highest of the seven cirque lakes. Here, you might want to try the local food such as the cured meats or the world-famous Black Forest cake that leaves nobody indifferent! 

Follow the Badischerweinstrasse on the way back
After lunch your tour will continue along the wine route of the Badischerweinstrasse. This wine route is the longest in Germany as it spans for more than 500 kilometers. The route is lined with charming small towns, picturesque villages, beautiful landscapes and mighty castles. Along the route, your guide will certainly make a few stops for great photo opportunities. One such stop will be in the village of Sasbachwalden. Set in the vineyards, this very well tended village is famous for having won the prestigious 'flowering of the villages' national exam. This can be seen as you stroll through the streets and admire the gorgeous flower decked half timbered houses. After the stop, return to Strasbourg.
