What To Expect

Check in for your tour at the bus parking Sihlquai. Settle aboard your luxury coach, departing central Zurich for the drive north to southern Germany.

• Admission Ticket Free

The drive lasts just over 1.5 hours, so sit back, relax and take in the postcard-perfect scenery. Pass by Lake Schluchsee, the lush green hills and woods of the Black Forest.

• Admission Ticket Free

Stop for roughly 2 hours in the picturesque town of Titisee-Neustadt, situated on the edge of Lake Titisee in the heart of the Black Forest. One of the area’s famous exports is German cuckoo clocks, so head inside Drubba – a prestigious clock producer – to see how these traditional clocks are made.
Then, spend the rest of your time in the town at leisure; stroll around Lake Titisee independently, enjoy a boat ride or perhaps visit a café to sample the region’s legendary Black Forest Gateau (activities and food at your own expense). The rich cake -- also known as Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte -- is constructed as a chocolate cake, layered with cherries, whipped cream and lashings of cherry brandy.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Meet your guide and travel south through the impressive spruce forests of Lenzkirch, working your way back into Switzerland.

• Admission Ticket Free

Rhine Falls
Head into the Upper Rhine region to stop at Rhine Falls – Europe’s largest waterfalls – and enjoy a break of roughly 45 minutes. Gaze at the water as it crashes down a drop of 75 feet (23 meters), pose for photos, and stroll around admiring the scenery.
(or take an optional boat ride)

50 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Return back to Zurich and finish your tour in the city center in the evening.

I have always wanted to see the Black Forest and we did. It was a beautiful day to visit and see the Black Forest as well as the Rhine Falls.
It was a good experience

Overall, good tour to take. For Black Forest, we thought we would be walking in the Forest, but it was a tour of a town in Black Forest. So, that was slightly different than our expectation. But the German city was beautiful and it was the worth the visit. And we can see the Black Forest from the city. Tour gave you enough time to sit down and have a coffee or desert in many of outside cafés to enjoy the view and weather. One warning, some spots don’t accept credit cards. We waste ~15-20 min trying to get the cash from ATM, which kind of ruined our experience. The 2nd stop, Rhine Fall, was amazing!! Take the boat tour (~15 min). Our driver took closer to the fall (everyone got wet a bit), which was great!!! They however, need to start this little early. All the shops in the waterfall areas were closed, so just walking around the area is all we could do.

Beautiful day seeing the countries when we visited Zurich. Coach was clean and comfortable. Our tour guide was pleasant and informative with several insights to offer. Titisee was beautiful and we regret not having more time there. Saved for the next trip!!!!
