Today we will drive through the southern part of the Black Forest. We will view deep valleys, remote villages and farms. One stop includes shopping at a cuckoo clock factory and department store.
Our next stop brings us to Heidelberg, Germany’s oldest university town. The highlight of today’s tour is a visit to Heidelberg Castle. This is a red-walled castle which contains the Great Vat. This 18th century vat has a 49,000 gallon capacity. Have your cameras ready.
Just in case you still have some shopping left, there is another „Kaethe Wohlfahrt“ shop in town. If not, you may just wish to take a stroll through Heidelberg’s historic center. Lunchtime at the historic brewey „Kulturbraurei“ in old Heidelberg with a beer tasting.
Just like spending time among friends, beer brewing and good hospitality are part of the Heidelberg culture. Accordingly, the city has many pubs – but hardly any of them has the genuine charm of this brauhaus.
Experience true Heidelberg hospitality together with our home-brewed beer and regional specialties – just like our grandmothers used to make. From suckled pig and “Sauerbraten” beef to „Schäufele“ ham and crispy, roasted duck, you’ll enjoy traditional, German cooking at its finest.
In the summer months, you can enjoy our culinary delights outside as well in our charming beer garden. The benches on the walls once stood in the Scottish Parliament and some of the tables and chairs originated from a Spanish monastery.
From Germany’s Black Forest we take you through the „Baden Area“ to the most beautiful part of the River Rhine. Here the river is flowing in a gorge, crested by vineyards and castles – some of them a thousand years old. The most beautiful castle is Schoenburg where we will have a fantastic dinner and spend the night behind walls that date back in history to the year 911. Today this unique castle is a castle hotel and famous restaurant.
