Hello, i am planning to go to schwarzwald with my boyfriend from frankfurt, mid September. i was thinking maybe a 4 or 5 day trip, go to karlsruhe then strasbourg, colmar,(maybe also Basel if there is time), freibourg, baden baden. i now that all these cities are not far away from each other, but do you think there is enough time to see everything without being stressed out? the point is, he would also like to take some time and relax, explore the black forest and all the nice scenery that has to offer. where should we go besides karlsuhe and freiburg? i have also read about titisee... our main goal is to visit schwarzwald, so pls advise!
My husband and I will be staying in Baden Baden in the beginning of May and we were wondering if we should do a day trip to Triberg or Freiberg. I have read about the Saturday morning market in Freiberg and was wondering if this would be open in early May. Triberg, we hear have beautiful falls. I would like to buy some authentic souvenirs that you can only get in this region (food, sauces clocks, whatever) and also see a bit of sights. Anyone have any good recommendations on which city to visit?
Mrs Flying.Scotsman and I are taking her mother to the Black Forest in June. Although we have some ideas of what to see, can members tell us some of their favourite places. Our interests include small towns, villages, markets, castles and palaces, crafts (clockmaking included), and of course, food! We will have a hire car and about 5 days to spend - this is flexible. Thanks for any help you can give. Bruce
My friend and I will be visiting the Black Forest in mid-March. We'll be flying into Frankfurt and have Eurail train passes. Can someone please suggest the best route to get to the Black Forest from Frankfurt (using the train)? Also - any suggestions as to must-see sights/things to do would be very much appreciated. We're only planning on staying for 2 days before heading to Berlin. We can't seem to find a sufficient guide to the BF that includes logistical advice (which town/city to stay in/how to get around)... Thanks for your time! Renee

Hi! Has anyone stayed at the Hotel Baren in Oberharmersbach in Black Forest Germany. There seems to be some confusion as guests are saying they have to walk to the hotel restaurant for their meals, some 5 mjnutes or 200 yards, Bit dodgy on a December night with ice and snow around! I can't figure it out as there is also anothe hotel whuch is the Hotel Barenstube whch crops up on the same site. Anyone able to un ravel the mystery? Thanks
Hi all Have been so confused as to where to do our 3 nights stay enroute from Paris to Lucerne. Appreciate any help I can get here from VTers please. We are a group of 7 adults and 1 infant and it has been quite a challenge deciding which towns to visit out of the 4 listed above. Our itinerary is Paris - one of the towns listed above - Lucern - Murren - Geneva - Paris. As our 84 yrs old grandma and 7 month old infant is with us on this trip, a scenic city that is perhaps more wheelchair and stroller friendly would be helpful. We are moving about in trains and won't have a car. Or should we actually rent a larger car and drive instead for day trips to be more cost effective? I suppose that basing ourselves in either Baden-Baden, Freiburg or Strasbourg would allow us to do a day trip to perhaps one of these cities as well. Heidelberg seems a little far north? Cost of hotels/pensions in each city is actually a consideration especially since it's quite a large group that we have. Thanks in advance for your help!
We shall stay in Lahr and make day trips by train. However, we decided to rent a car for two or three days to visit some places where is more difficult by train. We have a dilemma: - we think that is better to decide for what days to rent the car when we already will be in Lahr, depending on the weather - on the other hand, I suppose that if we reserve the car in advance, before we shall be in Germany, it will be cheaper and we are sure that we shall have the car (I found that during the time when we are in Lahr, is there a congress and there is also a festival). We do not know how is better to proceed. Any advices? It seems that it is a office Europcar in Lahr. Does somebody in this forum know it?
Hi Guys, I need your advice with our upcoming trip to Black Forest. First, background: we are small family 2+1 which is 6 months old. Last year, before the birth, we did first week on GR5 from Geneva to Chamoni and then spend another week doing day trips from Chamoni. Cool!!! Second, the time frame: arrive at Zurich April,15 - depart from Zurich at April, 25. 11 Days Third, the plan: Stay and 2 places during the vacation and do day trips from there. The questions: 1. Couple of years ago one couldn't find any travel info, but it all changed, now it is too much travel info... Which places would you suggest to stay in the area? Maybe we should do split it to 3 home bases or stay in 1 only? 2. Being not familiar with the area I struggle to understand if we need to rent a car or could we satisfactorily use only public transport? 3. Being with very small child we can't use restaurants so some kind of supermarket and kitchen is a must - Are there big supermarkets in this area? 4. If 'kitchen' than it probably should be vacation flat or house. We do not plan to spend there too much time during the day - but yet again small child :) Is there any recommendations? 5. Looking at descriptions it looks like April is the best period to visit: not to much people, everything is open, but hiking under heavy rain is not that fun. So what is the weather during this time frame? Looking at Internet couple of places I get completely different numbers. :) 6. The last 4 days are Easter holidays - Is there anything market and/or supermarket open during those days? Please do not hesitate to give me your opinion. Best Regards, Slava

Hello, My fiance and I are meeting in Prague and traveling around for his leave. We are going to head to Munich for Oktoberfest for a couple of days and from there would like to spend a couple of days in the Black Forest. I know this is not enough time for us to really take it in, but would be a good place for us to stay that would be easy to get to with out a car and provide the culture and charm of the Black Forest. We also have heard about the old wineries and wouldn't mind being close enough to those to check them out. Thanks for your help in advance!!
I will be driving from Strasbourg (France) to Freiburg in September. Can someone recommend a scenic itinerary that would take me through some picturesque towns? I don't want to take the autobahn. Any suggestions for towns and restaurants on the way would be great. Thanks Jeannette

We will be visiting Germany in mid-September 2010 for 2.5 weeks. One week in the Black Forest, one week in Southern Bavaria, and 3-4 days in Munich. We are a couple with two young children - one will be about 4 yrs old, and one will be about 1 year old. We are looking for some advice for the best home base for our time in the Black Forest. We are looking for a base that is central enough that it will allow us to do several day trips to the usual places (forest walks, cable cars to mountain views, cuckoo clock shopping, historic sites, open air museums, etc) but also have plenty to do on the days when we stick closer to home. Somewhere with easy-ish access to groceries, pharmacy, bakeries, and family friendly restaurants is also a plus. We are flying into Frankfurt, and are hiring a car. We would like to be in the Southern Black Forest, which would give us options to visit Lake Constance as well (a place Does anyone have any suggestions for us? Also, if anyone has suggestions for Bavaria, we are looking for advice on that area as well. Thanks so much in advance!

Hi folks, we plan to be in the Black Forest area for 2-3 days in late August. Would like to do a bit of driving, but mostly get a bit of a feel for the culture (including clock-making) and see some scenery (including rolling hills and castles). We were thinking of booking accomdations in Freiburg, with day excursions from there. Does this seem like a good "home base" if we want to see some of the main destinations? We will drive fron Brussels and pass through Baden Baden area on our way. It will be our first visit. Any suggestions on sightseeing and accomodations also appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help!
