Tour the Black Forest on Your Own – by Train or by Car

Update October 8, 2020. We have exciting news to share! For next year we will be offering a new format for our self-guided tours. You will no longer download our tours as a pdf file. Instead, we will provide you with an easy to download app so you can access all the tour info right from your tablet or smartphone. The new tours will be easy to navigate and come with gps info so you cannot get lost. We are also adding new regions in Germany – for example there will be a Rhine River and Moselle River Driving tour. If you want to be notified when our new tours become available, please sign up for our notification list below. See you soon in Germany! Simone Brixel, Owner, Black Forest Tours

No Boring Book

I fill-in the blanks between the lines in those other Travel Guide Books and explain the not-so-obvious to give you a robust local experience. I don’t just show you the obvious, I can take you off the beaten path so you can experience the real Black Forest.

You could spend your time trying to figure it all out on your own, but why? My tours are cheap compared to time you will spend researching all options (or the wrong turns you will make).

100% Real.

You want to see the real Black Forest, and not get lost? My Self-Guided Tours will have you traveling like a local!

Need To Know


100% Local.

My Self-Guided Tours provide you with all the Black Forest has to offer; castles and ruins, medieval towns, local festivals, high mountain lakes, scenic drives, and a whole lot more.

80% of The Black Forest is in German language Only!

Very little is in English. If you are traveling on your own by car or by train, my Self-Guided Tours enable you to navigate through one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, see the hidden gems, and without needing to speak German.

All you need is a rental car or a train ticket – and one of my Self-Guided Tours.
