Strasbourg: Black Forest and Baden Baden Day Trip

2. Strasbourg: Black Forest and Baden Baden Day Trip

Departing from the city of Strasbourg, take part in a shared small-group day trip that will take you to one of the most emblematic regions of Germany. After meeting with your English-speaking guide in a centrally located meeting point in Strasbourg, depart for the town of Baden-Baden. 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 forested mountain range bordered by the Rhine Valley to both the west and south. The highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 meters. The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region, and both the Black Forest gateau and cuckoo clock originate from this region. You soon arrive to the town of Baden Baden, a city which has attracted royalty, the rich, and celebrities throughout 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. There, the numerous viewpoints and belvedere will allow you to take in the stunning scenes of the Upper Rhine Valley of the Vosges Mountain Range of France in the distance. You later arrive to the pretty Mummelsee Lake, where you have some free time for personal discovery and lunch. With a circumference of 800 meters, a depth of 17 meters, and an elevation of 1,036 meters, Mummelsee is the largest, deepest, and highest of the Seven Cirque Lakes. Whilst there you might want to try local food such as cured meats, or the world-famous Black Forest cake. Following your tour, begin your return journey to Strasbourg. After a break for lunch your tour continues along the wine route of the Badischerweinstrasse. This wine route is the longest in Germany, spanning more than 500 kilometers. The route is lined with charming small towns, picturesque villages, beautiful landscapes, and mighty castles. Among a few stops made on your return journey is the village of Sasbachwalden. Set in the vineyards, this well-tended village is famous for having won the prestigious national "flowering of the villages" exam. This can be seen as you stroll through the streets and admire the gorgeous flower-decked half-timber houses. Following this final stop, your tour returns to Strasbourg.
