What You Can Expect

Black Forest and Strasbourg Day Trip from Frankfurt

Black Forest and Strasbourg Day Trip from Frankfurt

Leave the city of Frankfurt behind, and travel to the southwest corner of Germany by luxury coach. You'll head to the northern edge of Germany's Black Forest (Schwarzwald) to discover the sunny region of deep-green woodland that covers the mountains in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg.

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.

Of my three Viatar trips, this was my favorite (all were fantastic). I was on vacation on business in Brussels and had limited time to vacation in Europe on a travel, tour, and travel schedule. The trip into France, the Black Forest and other locations along the way was fantastic. Lucky to be a part of a small tour of four with a great tour guide who spoke perfect English and was very freindly. Lunch in the Black Forest by a lake, REAL Black Forest Cake. Beautiful picture post card views, opportunities to relax and grab lunch and tour locally. Highly recommended; as well as my tour in Switzerland to the Alps and from Brussels to Luxembourg

I thought that this was an excellent tour in most aspects. We were in a group of 6, so it felt as if we got to see more than if we had been in a group. In a small town in France we went on a boat tour that was slightly over an hour long. It was quite informative. However, it was hot so I recommend going on the closed top boat. We went into Baden Baden and had some Black Forest Cake. However, that is all that we did there. We were not given time to walk around. We also didn't get to walk into the Black Forest. All in all I would give this 4 1/2. They should add an extra hour and allow a short trip into the Black Forest, and a short alone time in Baden Baden.

Wonderful trip as we manage to experience a variety of places in a day. The guide was excellent too and as there were only the two of us we can explore at our own convenience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

We had a great tour with a wonderful guide. Only one problem - we wanted more time! Thanks for everything; hope to return someday.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Great tour but a lot of driving. Strasbourg is a beautiful city and the Notre Dame of Strasbourg can't be missed. The Black Forest is beautiful and certainly worth a visit.
