The Black Forest
embodies everything that the rest of the world expects of a German picture book
area. All this and more is part of the tour when you join RTT to the Black
Forest! A good 125 miles long and almost 40 miles wide, the Black Forest is not
only one of the most varied but also one of the biggest and probably best known
holiday regions in Germany.
Travel the Black Forest highway through picturesque villages and forest scenery
to the first destination,
where passengers witness
glass blowers at the glass blowing workshop and museum of the Dorotheenhutte and
have the opportunity to purchase hand-made wares at their extensive stores.
Witness glass blowers at the glass blowing workshop and museum of the
Dorotheenhutte and have the opportunity to purchase hand-made wares at their
extensive stores. Proudly known as the ‘Black Forest’s only hand-blown glass
factory’, Dorotheenhütte walks its guests through 2,000 years of glass history.
Dorotheenhütte also gives their visitors the opportunity to try their hand at
glass blowing – fascinating and fun when considering one rarely gets the
invitation to ‘touch’ and ‘try it out’ when fragile objects are concerned. Lunch
is provided here while your creations cool (beverages not included).
