This spectacular day out to discover the Black Forest farms and Kaiserstuhl vineyard will give you a good overview of nearby Germany. Discover incredible landscapes, the famous Black Forest farms, cross the Kaiserstuhl vineyards and taste a good local wine.
The Black Forest farms and Kaiserstuhl vineyard tour will first take us to the Rhine river near Breisach-am-Rhein. After that we will cross the plain on the German side, a land of plenty where everything grows thanks to a land fertilised by the river Rhine for millennia. Soon the first vineyards will be in sight, at the foot of the mountain. We have chosen to voluntarily leave aside the big city of Freiburg to discover its hinterland and go up to the high Black Forest where we will have lunch and have the opportunity to taste the famous kirsch cake!.
Then our route will meander on the heights, in the landscape so characteristic of the monumental and traditional mountain farms.
Finally, we will descend to the small volcanic and wine-growing massif of Kaiserstuhl, known for its beautiful terraced vineyards. In conclusion and before crossing the Rhine again towards Alsace, we will make a final stop to taste a local biodynamic wine.

This is what our clients say about this guided tour …
A very full, enjoyable day!
Our day started with a short trip to the banks of the Rhine River, where we were served fresh croissants, coffee and tea, watched swans and learned about local history. Then into the Black Forest, to a valley with many mills, with a personalized tour of a functioning mill for walnut oil. On up to the top of the mountains, with visit to a beautiful church, and then lunch. Then a walk through the forest, with views, ending on a hillside with delectable dessert and drinks. Finally, a visit to a bio winery winery specializing in natural wines, with a warm welcome. We arrived back at our rooms in time for late dinner, a very full, enjoyable day. Pierre is an excellent driver, the van is very comfortable and Jean-Paul adds so much fun information to the trip
