Pick up at centrally located meeting point in Strasbourg

This morning, we will come and pick you up in front of the Strasbourg Tourism Office. The Strasbourg tourist office is located at 17 Place de la Cathédrale 67000 Strasbourg in the heart of the city, next to the Cathedral. The tourism office is located close to all the hotels located in the city center, usually a maximum 10 minutes walking distance.

Meet your local tour guide

Upon arrival at the meeting point, you will be welcomed by your English speaking driver guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing the name of the tour and with the Ophorus logo on it. Also, all our guides have a nominative badge so that it will be easy for you to recognize them.

Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of this full day tour from Strasbourg with you. Then, board your comfortable, air conditioned Mercedes minivan and begin to make your way to the Black Forest region.

All our vehicles are equipped with an on board P/A system which means that everyone will hear the guide's commentary during driving time, even if you are seated in the back of the van! Also, we have bottled water at your disposal and you can use our free wifi as you travel from one destination to another.

Visit the Spa town of Baden-Baden

At first, you will cross the nearby border of France into Germany leaving the Grand Est region and entering the state of Baden Württemberg. The Black Forest is a wooded mountain range bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south.

The highest peak is Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 meters (4,898 feet). The name Black Forest comes from the general dark color of the numerous pine trees that grow in this region. The Black Forest gateau and the cuckoo clocks originate from this region.

Reach the town of Baden Baden, nestled at the foot of the black forest. The city has attracted royalty, the rich and celebrities over the centuries. Follow a guided walking tour and discover the numerous architectural splendors and magnificent villas that are lined along the Lichtentaler Allee.

After this short walking tour, admire the landscape as your tour follows the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse. Here, the numerous viewpoints and belvedere will allow you to take in stunning scenes of the Upper Rhine Valley of the Vosges mountain range of France in the distance.

Discover Mummelsee Lake

Arrive at pretty Mummelsee lake where you will have some free time for personal discovery and lunch. With a circumference of 800 m, a depth of 17 m and an elevation of 1,036 m, Mummelsee is the largest, deepest and highest of the seven cirque lakes. Here, you might want to try the local food such as the cured meats or the world-famous Black Forest cake that leaves nobody indifferent!

Follow the Badischer weinstrasse on the way back

After lunch your tour will continue along the wine route of the Badische Weinstrasse. This wine route is the longest in Germany as it spans for more than 500 kilometers. The route is lined with charming small towns, picturesque villages, beautiful landscapes and mighty castles. Along the route, your guide will certainly make a few stops for great photo opportunities.

One such stop will be in the village of Sasbachwalden. Set in the vineyards, this very well tended village is famous for having won the prestigious 'flowering of the villages' national exam. This can be seen as you stroll through the streets and admire the gorgeous flower decked half timbered houses. After the stop, return to Strasbourg.

For another great time in the area, it is possible to follow one of our tours to the university town of Freiburg, with its stunning medieval town or why not visit the Haut Koenigsbourg castle on our Pearls of Alsace day tour.
