Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Zurich and then hop aboard your luxury coach for the journey north to the Black Forest in southern Germany. The journey lasts just over 1.5 hours, so sit back and relax, taking in the postcard-perfect scenery; as Lake Schluchsee drops from your view, the lush green hills and woods of the Black Forest take center stage.

Stop for roughly two hours in the town of Titisee-Neustadt on the edge of Lake Titisee - an area that's known for being 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 cafe to sample the regions legendary Black Forest Gateau (activities and food at your own expense). The rich cake -- also known as Schwarzwlder Kirschtorte -- is constructed as a chocolate cake, layered with cherries, whipped cream and lashings of cherry brandy.

Meet your guide and travel south through the impressive spruce forests of Lenzkirch, working your way back into Switzerland. Head into the Upper Rhine region to stop at Rhine Falls Europes 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, before traveling back to Zurich.

Your tour then finishes at the start point in the early evening.

    I had received message that my trip was confirmed but when I reached the pick up point, I was told that the tour cannot take place because there was not enough number of people.

    We had a great time. Our tour guide Raymond was very helpful, knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. Driver Richard was very nice as well. Thanks for such an amazing and funfilled day..

    Perfect amount of time to get to both places in one day. Definitely choose the boat ride at Rhine Falls....waterfall is breath taking.

    Anna is an amazing tour guide! She is friendly and detailed with a good sense of humour. She is also patient with troublemakers in the tour group. The driver is polite and an expert with sharp turns. We had a pleasant and smooth journey thanks to him. Highly recommended!!

    I did enjoy this time in black fiorest and also time at Rhine waterfalls. Both placescwere excellent. Wish I could have had more time at both places but that I would make the tour longer. The bus route took up 4 of the 7 hours but was a an enjoyable ride.

    Our trip to Black Forest and Rhine Falls through Viator was an amazing experience. The Driver and Guide were very nice people. An excellent one day trip from Zürich. Highly recommended.

    They drove us around and went to the Black Forest only to land in a shopping center (we are not interested in doing shopping) and then we went to the Rhine Falls, but honestly they didn’t impress me. I am surprised this place is being treated as a tourist attraction!!

    Very nice places but too little time to spend on them and it was very crowded as well.The cuckoo-clock factory/store had a very interesting presentation. At the restaurant we ate, we had to ask
    the waiter to rush the order (he was great and the food as well). The Rhine Falls trip was nice but still on a hurry-up mode.

  • 05-Aug-2019

    Everything was as advertised. The driver and guide were friendly, very courteous and highly professional. Very enjoyable and informative trip added much to my knowledge of this beautiful part of Germany and Switzerland. Highly recommend!

    Rhine falls was very nice. as far as black forest goes, if one is really interested in buying a cukoo clock, which by itself is a master piece, one must go there. the journey via Germany is also nice. The guide were very cooperative
