What You Can Expect
The first stop on your day trip will be in Baden-Baden, a chic Black Forest spa town, for sightseeing with your expert guide. Elegant and sophisticated, Baden-Baden offers a delightful townscape of tree-lined avenues, grand buildings and boutiques alongside its legendary thermal baths. See the famous Kurhaus Casino before traveling through the dark Black Forest woods to visit Lake Mummelsee.
In the afternoon, your trip will continue west to the cosmopolitan city of Strasbourg, on the French side of the France-Germany border. Officially the capital city of the French Alsace region and home to the European Parliament, Strasbourg is a unique European city with notable influences from both Germany and France.
After an introduction to this fascinating city from your guide, you'll have time to spend at leisure for independent sightseeing. See Strasbourg's famous Gothic Cathedral, browse the shops, enjoy a romantic boat ride on the canals or visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of La Petite France − Strasbourg's historical town center.
They both are beautiful place, especially Strasbourg! The scenery is a little different from other city in Germany. What a nice trip!
I highly recommend this tour. Strasbourg is wonderful. In the plaza next to the boat landing, 2 young men were playing saxophones. If you are a photo nut like me, I suggest sitting in the middle to the back of the boat. It does not matter which side. The cathedral is breath-taking. It would be nice to have more time to walk around Strasbourg though. I enjoyed the Black Forest - I only wish we could have walked through it to truly experience the "blackness." I do recommend walking around the lake. It only takes a few minutes. I wish we had had more time here also but Strasbourg was awesome.
