What You Can Expect

Black Forest and Rhine Falls Day Trip from Zurich

Admire the Rhine Falls on your day trip from Zurich!

Settle aboard your luxury coach, departing central Zurich for the approximate 1.5-hour drive north to southern Germany. Watch the scenery slip past, including Lake Schluchsee, as you approach the picturesque town of Titisee-Neustadt, situated on the edge of Lake Titisee in the heart of the Black Forest. 

Your guide makes a stop in town for about two hours, starting with a visit to the prestigious Drubb clockmaker. Step inside the shop and learn about the traditional art of producing cuckoo clocks, the area’s renowned export.

During your free time, explore the town independently. Stroll at your leisure around Lake Titisee or take an optional boat ride. Perhaps head to a cafe to taste the region’s signature chocolate and cherry cake, Black Forest Gateau — aka Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. (Activities and food are your own expense.)

When it’s time, meet up with your guide and re-board the coach for the drive south back toward Switzerland. You’ll journey through the spruce forests of Lenzkirch until you reach the Upper Rhine region. Before returning to Zurich, disembark at the impressive Rhine Falls to watch the waters of the Rhine River crashing down a 75-foot (23-meter) drop. During a 45-minute break here, stroll around admiring the scenery and posing for photos.

Your 7-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the starting point in the evening.

What a wonderful Day Trip. The Black Forest was really beautiful as was the village of Titisee-Neustadt. The visit to the Cuckoo Clock maker Drubba was really enjoyable and informative. I thoroughly enjoyed Black Forest Gateau and coffee at a local cafe.
Rhine falls were really spectacular and we got up close to them. I would highly recommend this Day Trip from Zurich.

The ride was good, smooth and slowed at photographic sights.
Black Forest is a nice town. Rhine falls was spectacular. Pictures n videos aren't enough.
