We cannot agree more with Rick Steves who says ‘Staufen is an enjoyable town to explore – it feels real and is welcoming visitors without being a touris trap’. If you have been to other towns in Germany Staufen will feel different. It’s a town often overlooked at by foreign tourists – this is where the locals go to get away for a weekend. Real town, real Germany.

With this walking tour you know what to look out for in Staufen. It is an easy (flat) walk taking you to the backstreets of this cute town – we give you a bit of history, some of the local stories, and show you what places not ot miss. You can find a good Black Forest cake anywhere in this area – but we tell you where in this town to find the very best one.

If you are an active person we take you up to the castle – its a steep climb up the vineyards though. If that’s too much activitiy you might enjoy a wine tasting with some local food nearby instead (we tell you where and what to order).

When can I purchase this tour?
