driving tour of baden baden

North of the Border

This tour takes you to the Northern Black Forest. Relax at the thermal baths in Baden-Baden before heading into the National Park. Drive on the Black Forest High Road before you stop at Lake Mummelsee. Then the tour takes you to the wine area where you spend the next day exploring. Feel like a local when we tell you where to find a hidden schnaps fountain.

2 days/3 nights, (add on more days)

This is a shorter version of our original Black Forest Trail. You hike half the distance. And finish the last km to your next hotel by bus/train. Great for hikers who like the sound of the Black Forest Trail – but are hesitant to cover those long distances on foot. This lighter version allows you to spend more time exploring the towns or see nearby sights before hitting the trail. Or maybe skip the hike one day altogether and take it easy instead?

Good package if you are looking for something a bit different: Baden-Baden, the remote Northern Black Forest plus the wine area

Why we love this tour

Most visitors to the Black Forest visit the more touristy areas: the clock area in the Central Black Forest. Or some of the tourist hotspots in the the Southern Black Forest like Lake Titisee. This tour is different. The Northern Black Forest is home to the National Park. And a region which cannot easily be explored by bus. But it can be done – and we tell you exactly how to do it. Starting out from Baden-Baden you will be taken onto the Black Forest High Road. There are several stops to choose from. We provide you with all the options. And if you are looking for an active day we can also point out 2 good hikes for you (both around 7 km).

You will spend the next night in the wine area – an area where not many tourists get to. And no worries – even if you don’t enjoy wine this is a good area to visit. There are plenty of other things to see and do besides a wine tasting.

Have more time? Why not add-on another region in Germany or nearby France?

After your stay in the Black Forest we highly recommend to add-on a nearby region for more touring. We can set you up with an add-on package taking you to Colmar in Alsace (France). Or, if you want to see more of Southern Germany add-on some days at Lake Constance, the Rhine Falls or Munich & Neuschwanstein in Bavaria 

Is it for me?
