Your visit to the Black Forest region starts out in Freiburg – secretly called ‘the capital of the Black Forest’. Being the sunniest town in Germany people come here to enjoy warm temperatures and a very laied-back lifestyle. We include a guided tour in your package so your really get to know the city like a local.

That’s why we have several itineraries you can choose from – we really want that you get to see and do what’s important to you. We present you all the options – you get to pick what to see and what to do.

Baden-Baden: thermal baths
