This train tour covers the top attractions in the Central Black Forest. This area is also known as the cuckoo clock area. If you want to see and do it all in a day and don’t care about feeling rushed – this is the tour for you! With this tour you do it all in one day. This is also a good tour if you have more than just 1 day available – you can easily split off the tour and tour for 2 days (start/end Offenburg each day)
The Classic Train Tour combines the top attractions in the central Black Forest in one tour. But be aware – because there is just too much to see in a day, you might have to go – go – go! Because the tour is packed with attractions, it has been one of my most popular tours.
Some of the tour highlights are classic Black Forest towns where you walk down ancient cobblestone streets and even mingle with locals if you like. We’ll visit a local woodcarver’s shop. This tour takes you to the famous Open-Air Farmhouse Museum and to the cuckoo clock area. There are waterfalls to see, and a mountain coaster ride – its a great tour if you have children come along.
This tour has some fun short-cuts too, like taking hikes through the woods as alternatives to sitting on the train or bus. You’ll really get to walk in the Black Forest if you want. There is a little-known and beautiful hike along the historic Black Forest Railway line. And there is even a mountain lake where you can enjoy lunch! This is not a cookie cutter tour. The area is so big we have to tell you what to skip. You get to pick and choose amongst many sights and attractions.
It is quite difficult to tour this area by bus & train – the schedules are very limited and a bit tricky. But we will tell you exactly how it can be done – when to switch to the next bus and when to stay on. Do not worry. The Classic Train Tour instructs how to do it all, but in a format for the experienced traveler. If you consider yourself an experienced traveler you can’t go wrong with this tour.
No interest in the open-air farmhouse museum? Then choose the See-It-All Tour instead. The See-It-Al Tour covers the same area and same route, but you skip the Farmhouse Museum and the mountain coaster. The difference is fewer stops, less hectic, and you still get to see the Black Forest cuckoo clock area and much more. We make touring by train EASY!
