Day 3 Sunday

After breakfast we will delve deep into the Black Forest stopping at
Oberwolfach, famous for its silver mine which has been worked since the 13th century.
Commercial mining ceased in 2001 and it was converted into a tourist attraction. You
will be given rubber boots and a helmet to start your tour - maybe you can find some
silver in the tunnels? Once back out in daylight the next highlight will be the impressive
Triberg waterfalls which are over 160m high. You can really feel the power of the roaring
water from one of the two bridges located close to the falls. Finally we will take in the
world’s largest cuckoo clock close by – try to be there on the hour to see the cuckoo
make an appearance. Dinner will be served in a traditional restaurant.

Day 4 Monday

After breakfast head for the beautiful town of Lahr. The guide will
introduce you to the town and all its main features including the Storchenturm or
Stork’s Tower. For the last 10 years Lahr has become known internationally as the home
of the Chrysanthemum through its annual flower festival, which runs for three weeks
each Autumn. Millions of chrysanthemums are have been planted throughout the town
creating beautiful flower masterpieces wherever you go. Relax and unwind this
afternoon, wandering between flower ballerinas and flower peacocks!

Day 5 Tuesday

Today we visit Titisee, the Black Forest’s most famous lake. A boat
trip is a ’must do’ activity while you are here. Back on dry land we will make our way to
a baker who will give a demonstration on how to bake the world famous Black Forest
Gateau. You will be given tips and tricks on how to bake the cake yourself back home.
Of course, there is nothing nicer than sampling a slice of the local delicacy with a nice
cup of coffee, and you will have a chance to do this. Afterwards, we will visit a farm that
dates from the 15th century and the open-air Klausenhof Farming Museu
