Why take this tour?

Experience Freiburg and Its Lovely Old Quarter

Leave the Alsace region on this full day tour and head towards southern Germany. Discover the University town of Freiburg, a town known for its ancient university and its medieval minster (Cathedral), for its cobbled plazas, its high standard of living and advanced environmental practices. This medieval town is situated in the heart of a major wine-growing region and is the primary entry point to the scenic beauty of the Black Forest.


Depart from your centrally located hotel in Strasbourg and head towards the town of Freiburg. The town has more to offer than friendly faces alone, including one of Germany’s prettiest old quarters, with its characteristic Bächle – the narrow channels of water that run alongside the pavements. Add to that a wealth of culture and history, lots of cafés and cosy bars, delicious regional food and scenic surroundings. This morning, follow your guide on a walking tour to discover all the main monuments and sights of the town. You will then have a short time to explore and tour the city on your own.

Then, a Trip Through the Black Forest

After some free time for personal discovery and lunch at your own expense, your day tour from Strasbourg will head towards the scenic route of the Black Forest. 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 cake and the cuckoo clocks originate from this region. Here, you will follow the scenic route of the Black Forest passing small quaint mountain villages that borders one of the most beautiful lakes of the area. You might want to try the local food such as the cured meats or the world-famous Black Forest cake that leaves nobody indifferent! After the tour, return to Strasbourg.
