Fun trip.
Fun trip. Had to take a bus to get there and that was about an hour, but the scenery was gorgeous in the mountains. We saw clock building, black forest cake demonstrations and had time to shop.

Black Forest excursion was rather contrived; we were driven to a group of shops and buildings and the main attraction was shopping... Tour guides disappeared for an hour or so and left us to wander on our own.

An experience not to be missed!
An experience not to be missed! Very misty morning winding through the countryside but came to the top with magical views. Have a problem with motion sickness but the driver was very careful and drove very smoothly. Bonus.
