So you don’t see yourself buying a cookie-cutter vacation package and you certainly don’t see yourself on a bus with 50 other people; hitting every tourist spot whether you like it or not, with hectic deadlines, eating when and where everybody else eats.

100% Real

You would rather figure out your own trip, but now you are limited to those things written about in only a few guide books. Those books naturally try to cover it all, and by necessity, contain brief descriptions of only the same touristy attractions. You want to see the real country-side, but that is going to get you lost! This is where Black Forest Tours comes to the rescue. (view Testimonials)

80% of The Black Forest is not accessible to non-Germans

While The Black Forest is one of Germany’s most popular holiday regions, almost nothing is in English. If you are traveling on your own by car or by train, Black Forest Self-Guided-Tours enables you to navigate through one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, see the hidden gems, and without needing to speak a single word of German.

All you need is a car or a train ticket – and one of my Black Forest day tour itineraries.

Need To Know


Black Forest Self-Guided-Tours will save you far more than they cost – and it can get very expensive traveling in the Black Forest – especially if you don’t speak the language. You need to know where to go and what to skip.

100% Local

My day tour itineraries provide you with all the Black Forest has to offer; castles and ruins, medieval towns, local festivals, high mountain lakes, scenic drives, and places only the locals go – the real (unpublished) attractions you should not miss.

With my local insider guidance, you don’t need to purchase another Black Forest travel guide – tested by locals!

You’ll be traveling like a local!

Update May 13, 2016:  My new driving tours are available. We have started to expand into other German regions besides the Black Forest. The Neuschwanstein Black Forest Tour takes you all the way to Castle Neuschwanstein. The Top Ten Alsace Tour explores the area between Strasbourg and Colmar in France. Happy Touring – Simone
