Today we will drive through the southern part of the Black Forest. We will view miles and miles of forests, 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.
When all the shopping is done we will return to Frankfurt. Tonight will we go out and celebrate with a wonderful Farewell Christmas Dinner. We will stay overnight in Frankfurt at a **** Hotel.
