The Heart of the Black Forest Tour takes you on a drive through the central Black Forest and parts of the southern Black Forest. The drive is marked marked by cute Black Forest towns, castle ruins, cuckoo clocks, beautiful valleys and old farmhouses.

This tour offers views as far away as the Swiss Alps and the Vogues mountains in France. You will visit the World’s Biggest Cuckoo Clock. And you can optionally hike Germany’s highest waterfalls. There is also a fascinating farmhouse museum in the area that takes you back in time 500 years. If you are interested in visiting an old castle ruin overlooking a beautiful Black Forest valley – why not do it during this tour? Depending on how much time you have available, this tour gives you the option to explore a very old, formerly walled city – which happens to be one of the prettiest villages in the Black Forest. We highly recommend stopping in this hidden gem of the Black Forest.

What city to start from?

The tour is available starting from Offenburg going to Freiburg. And also in the opposite direction – from Freiburg to Offenburg. The distance is short, but there is so much to see and do that it will take you all day to finish the tour. If you only have 1 day in the Black Forest, passing through from or to Switzerland this is a good choice. This tour takes you to the main touristy sights, including the clock area.
