Black Forest and Rhine Falls Day Trip from Zurich
$80.13
Overview
Travel into the heart of the breathtaking Black Forest region on this day trip from Zurich, with a stop at Rhine Falls. You’ll cross into Germany from Switzerland to visit the charming town of Titisee-Neustadt, where you’ll visit the locally renowned Drubb watchmaker to see how cuckoo clocks are made. Enjoy free time here with the option to take a boat ride on Lake Titisee. Later, witness Europe’s largest waterfall tumbling into the Rhine River. Enjoy informative commentary from your guide and a round-trip ride by luxury coach.
What to Expect
Settle aboard your luxury coach, departing central Zurich for the approximate 1.5-hour drive north to southern Germany. Watch the scenery slip past, including Lake Schluchsee, as you approach the picturesque town of Titisee-Neustadt, situated on the edge of Lake Titisee in the heart of the Black Forest. 

Your guide makes a stop in town for about two hours, starting with a visit to the prestigious Drubb clockmaker. Step inside the shop and learn about the traditional art of producing cuckoo clocks, the area’s renowned export.

During your free time, explore the town independently. Stroll at your leisure around Lake Titisee or take an optional boat ride. Perhaps head to a cafe to taste the region’s signature chocolate and cherry cake, Black Forest Gateau — aka Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. (Activities and food are your own expense.)

When it’s time, meet up with your guide and re-board the coach for the drive south back toward Switzerland. You’ll journey through the spruce forests of Lenzkirch until you reach the Upper Rhine region. Before returning to Zurich, disembark at the impressive Rhine Falls to watch the waters of the Rhine River crashing down a 75-foot (23-meter) drop. During a 45-minute break here, stroll around admiring the scenery and posing for photos.

Your 7-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the starting point in the evening.

Highlight of the tour is the Rhine Falls section

This is how the day goes: You’ll first drive to Black Forest which is quite overhyped. There are just a few shops to visit and it’s very touristy. There’s little to buy there unless you wanna spend huge sums on cuckoo clocks. You’ll just see...More
