The Escorted Motorhome Tour

The Black Forest is more than the home of the cuckoo clock and Black Forest Gateau. It is a region of stunning natural beauty of wooded hills, rolling meadows and charming towns and villages as well as relaxing spas.

Our Tour will take us from the north of the Black Forest to the Alpine foothills in Switzerland. On the way you can visit the German Clock museum and see the world largest cuckoo clock. Enjoy the scenery of Germany’s largest waterfall in Triberg and lakes like Titisee or Schluchsee. A highlight of the Tour is the waterfalls of the Rhine in Schaffhausen, just across the border in Switzerland. We will stay at lake Constance, giving you a chance to visit the flower island of Mainau and the beautiful cities of Konstanz and Lindau with the charming port connecting Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Day 6: Kirchzarten/Freiburg

Visit Freiburg, also known as the sunny city, it is only a short train journey away from our campsite.

Our journey then continues through beautiful countryside and past the Feldberg, the highest mountain in Germany outside of the Alps.
