Know More about this tour

Leave central Frankfurt and travel south to Heidelberg in the northern Baden-Wrttemberg region roughly an hour away. Straddling the River Neckar, the romantic city is framed by dense woodlands that seemingly try to hide its star attraction Heidelberg Castle. Referred to as the 'schloss by locals, the castle is the epitome of a fairytale fortress with palatial Gothic-Renaissance architecture, lavish grounds and heart-stopping views.

Head inside and explore the ruins with your guide, walking through its large courtyard and along the terrace. Drink in the sweeping views, and then admire some of the castles artifacts, like the wine barrel that is said to be the largest in the world.

After your castle tour, travel down the hill, and then stretch your legs on a walking tour of the Old Town, seeing attractions like the Old Bridge, the 18th-century Karlstor gate and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Learn of Heidelbergs erudite reputation as a university town, and hear about day-to-day life in the town as you walk around. Your guide will recommend some of the best local eateries and then leave you to enjoy lunch (own expense).

Board your coach and travel further south to Baden-Baden, a historical spa town in the heart of the Black Forest. Explore the town on your walking tour, passing its manicured parks and thermal bath houses. The town's headline attraction is Baden-Baden Kurhaus home to one of the oldest casinos in Europe so head inside for a tour.

Venture further into the Black Forest by coach to visit Lake Mummelsee, and then spend time at leisure at a town nearby. The region is famous for its production of traditional German cuckoo clocks, so perhaps browse the shops for souvenirs to take home. Then, head back to Frankfurt by coach, finishing your tour at the start point.
