Day 3 – Today we have arranged a scenic tour of the beautiful Black Forest. Starting off at Freudenstadt our coach will drive along the famous Schwarzwaldhochstrasse - Germany’s oldest panoramic road – Which offers unbeatable, spectacular views across the Black Forest and the Rhine plain to the Vosges Mountains. We finish with some free time to explore the beautiful spa-town of Baden-Baden.
