Tour Itinerary

Day 1: London to Titisee

Meet at our dedicated Departure Office at St Pancras International and take the Eurostar to Paris, and enjoy a light meal and drinks on board. In Paris we change trains and continue by TGV to Strasbourg. Here we transfer by coach to Lake Titisee, and the Maritim Hotel.

Day 2: Black Forest Panorama

Today we take a scenic coach tour into the heart of the Black Forest. One of Germany's most iconic natural areas, the Black Forest mountain range is flanked by the reaches of the Rhine valley.

Day 3: Schluchsee cruise

We travel by Standard Class rail to Schluchsee, a pretty town set on the lake of the same name. The highest reservoir in Germany at 930m above sea level, the waters remain reasonably clear because of their elevation. Here we enjoy a cruise around the unspoilt shoreline, passing forested beaches and picturesque mountain foothills, before free time to explore the authentic lakeside town. 

Day 4: The Black Forest by Steam

We take a coach to the town of Blumberg. Here we visit the small railway museum, before we join the Sauschwänzlebahn Steam Railway, for a journey through spectacular scenery to Weizen, near the Swiss border. 

Day 5: Freiburg

We take a train (Standard Class) to Freiburg this morning, a pretty city at the edge of the Black Forest. Here you are free to explore Freiburg's main sights including the Minster of Our Lady, a wonderful red sandstone Gothic cathedral. 

Day 6: At leisure in Titisee

Today is at leisure to explore and is a great opportunity to use your Hochschwarzwald Card for reduced train fare in the surrounding area and reductions on entry to some local attractions. Alternatively, you could board a train to the nearby cities of Baden-Baden and Stuttgart, both just under two hours away by rail and boasting plenty of varied options for both the cultural and historical enthusiast.

Day 7: Titisee to London in First Class

Bidding farewell to Germany, we transfer to Strasbourg, where we take the high speed train to Paris, we cross the city to board the Eurostar to London. Upon arrival, your tour concludes.
