Traditional Black Forest dinner

Day 4

Enjoy dinner at a romantic, traditional "Pudelstein" hut in Germany's Black Forest

The Black Forest region of southern Germany has a cultural identity all its own; mostly rural, it comprises much dense forest, rich farmland, and scattered towns and villages. It has its own centuries-old traditions in costume, cuisine, woodcarving and outdoor life... including the rustic surroundings that inspired the "Pudelstein" hut in which you'll enjoy a traditional Black Forest dinner during your visit.

We saw a nice blend of culture and architecture. Our Tauck Director was amazing and kept everything very organized.

Black Forest cooking demo

Day 4

Learn secrets from chefs with an interactive Black Forest cooking demonstration

Bavaria and the Black Forest region of Germany have contributed a wide range of local dishes to European cuisine, from spätzle, maultaschen (a filled Swabian pasta-like dish, sort of like Italian ravioli but usually larger), Schwarzwälder Schinken (Black Forest Ham) and grillwurst (spicy sausage made from ground pork and bacon) to brezels, flammkuchen and iconic Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake). Learn some of the secrets of preparing some of these and other regional specialties at an interactive cooking demonstration with chefs in the Black Forest.

Very dissatisfied, Hop on Hop Off Bus Experience. This tour offered no more than a Hop On Hop off Bus experience. Too many early mornings and too long on the bus Not enough variation from one destination to the next. Too many museums, castles, churches. It would have been nice to have seen some plays ,concerts etc.

Most Memorable Moment:

The Black Forest and the quaint town of Rothenburg.

The trip was outstanding. Every aspect of the trip from the initial greeting, the transportation, the places we stayed, and the sights and experiences provided.

Most Memorable Moment:

The stay at the Medieval Heidelberg in the Black Forest
