Black Forest
Tour Operator: RTT

Overview:  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. 

 

Itinerary:  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).

At the Vogtsbauernhof Outdoor Museum, culture and history come to life!  Actual buildings set into accessible settings show you how life was lived in past centuries in this rugged region of central Europe.  See traditional breeds of domestic animals. Together they present the many different faces of life in the Black Forest: its architecture, traditions, customs and trades, and the way people have lived and farmed for over 400 centuries.

 

The afternoon continues with a drive into the center of the Black Forest region to visit one of the largest clock productions.  Bring VAT forms for your purchases here!  Depart late afternoon and return to point of origin at about 8:00 p.m.
