Visit the breathtaking Black Forest region and the Rhine Falls – Europe’s largest waterfall – in one day on a tour from Zurich! The full-day trip starts with a visit to Titisee-Neustadt, a pretty town in the heart of Germany's Black Forest. Admire its star attraction, Lake Titisee, and visit the locally renowned Drubb watchmaker to see traditional German cuckoo clocks being made. Before returning to Zurich, stop at Rhine Falls to watch the waters of the Rhine River crashing down a 75-foot (23-meter) drop.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Zurich, Zurich

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.

Pass By: Schluchsee, Schluchsee, Baden-Wurttemberg

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.

Stop At: Titisee-Neustadt, Titisee-Neustadt, Baden-Wurttemberg

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.

Little bit disappointed with this tour. The Rhine Falls are actually incredibly small and it’s more like a small lake to walk around. I was very dissatisfied that we had less than an hour to look around the charming village of Lake Titisee. This was NOT enough time to stop in a cafe to try the famous Black Forest cake, explore the shops or take pictures of the beautiful area. This made it a let down.

It was like a HOHO... but still worth the rush... the cuckoo clock makers were wonderful... Again it was the tour Manager Kunal who made it effective...cos' when you know what you are looking at , the viewing is all the more impressive...
