Our Expert Culinary Guide can answer almost any question you might have about eating and drinking in the Black Forest and Freiburg. She has her own cooking blog and loves to try out new recipes. Our guide takes you to the farmer’s market where you get to meet local farmers and sample the offerings. When was the last time you bought your groceries directly from the farmer?

We show you where the locals shop for food and drink in Freiburg. We eat and drink our way through the open-air market, restaurants and cafes. Do you know where to get the best cheesecake in all of Germany? We do! (and much more)

Simone, we thoroughly enjoy our time with Doro yesterday on the culinary tour, Doro was excellent! We are now traveling east, and I recall you talking about the best fish sandwich on Lake Constance. Can you remind me where that was. Thanks for your help.

My husband and I took a culinary tour which was set up for us (even though out of season) and got amazing samples from the market as well as some black forest cake! Our tour guide shared not only food, but history as well.

Simone went above and beyond to accommodate our wishes and sent endless e-mails back and forth to ensure I got the tour I wanted in the short time frame I had. I highly recommend Black Forest tours, the customer service is above and beyond.
