The Beautiful Black Forest - Gold

8 days Half Board by Coach

The dominant colour of this peaceful holiday area of Southwest Germany is not black, but verdant green, where picturesque villages and delightful little towns are tucked away in deep valleys, beneath wooded slopes, and the landscape is dotted with distinctive wooden farmhouses. Specialities of the region include Schwarzwalder Kirchtorte – Black Forest Gâteau - and colourful cuckoo clocks, both of which are hard to resist!
