Excellent tour! This was an all day trip to Baden-Baden and several of the small towns in the Black Forest. Our guide, Jean Yves, was the best - very friendly, knowledgeable and informative. He picked us up early, drove us to our destination and gave...More

Have traveled some of the most "scenic routes" in many many countries. This was by and far one of the least scenic routes I've taken. If you like to see deforestation, mining, etc., then go for it, otherwise, not worth the time. Not sure I...More

This road is truly beautiful, my husband and I took this road as part of a road trip around Germany and it was magical. We had snow during spring, and I think that also enhanced our experience. There are plenty of safe places to stop...More

This beautiful drive reminded us of the Blue Ridge Parkway (for the Americans out there). Didn't get to drive the whole thing, and as we were there on Christmas Day, pretty much and restaurants we saw were closed. Lovely way to spend the day, though!

Go check out the forest when in Germany. See a cuckoo clock and eat some black forest cake. There is a reason this is so popular

Driving from Baden Baden to Innsbruck on a Friday morning, it would have been mad not to take this road. Simply amazing views, have the camera ready. Lots of bends, and yes there are speed limits!

We were staying in the black forest and drove this road over several days. Photographs do not do the views you experience justice.

The drive is incredible from Freudenstadt to Baden-Baden. An easy day trip from Stuttgart through lots of tiny, picturesque villages and the larger city of Freudenstadt. When you reach the Hochstrasse on the other side of Freudenstadt you will immediately want to relish the views....More
