"Mountains and food" Black Forest by Sjalen
Black Forest Travel Guide: 96 reviews and 303 photos
Schwarzwald - the Black Forest - lies in the south western corner of Germany which is already special. It is the sunniest corner of Germany (so below the forest the vineyards go on and on) and it used to belong to Austria which makes the inhabitants a little bit different to the average German. Especially when you consider that it is also very close to both France (Alsace) and Switzerland (Basel). The forest itself is gorgeous, Not just a forest but a mountain range. Even though they aren't that high, some of the peaks can offer views of the Alps on a clear day and wherever you go there are other good views, friendly people and great food. This is definately one of my European top destinations.
- Pros:Gorgeous scenery, great food
- Cons:You often need a car
- In a nutshell:For food loving photographers
The locals know what good food is. Try the Black Forest gateau and you won't want it anywhere else! Maybe not WITH beer... more travel advice
If you have never been to the area before (and especially if you don't have a car) I recommend that you stay in Freiburg... more travel advice
