Fairytale in the Black Forest

8 Days, 7 Nights - Half Board

Getting its name from the oppressive canopy of evergreens looming above the forest floor we head into the setting for many a Grimm brothers’ fairytale. The Black Forest, where picturesque villages full of half-timbered houses dot the landscape and cuckoo clocks keep an eye on the time. Enjoy a visit to the impressive Mainau Island, known for its botanical gardens with many different areas to explore including Butterfly House and Palm House. Experience the drama and beauty of the Rhine Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in Europe with a boat trip as part of your itinerary. 


Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
