The Black Forest is a huge forested mountainous region in the state of Baden Württemberg. Its name comes from the massive dark color of pine trees that grow in this area. The Roman soldiers were the first who used the name Black Forest (German Schwarzwald). They were crossing through Germany and the path was surrounded by a gloomy forest. Thus, they called the region “Silva Nigra”. This literally means the pitch black, musky forest in the Latin language.
At that time people did not think about entering the Black Forest, as it was considered a scary and dangerous place. The Black Forest has been the inspiration for numerous Grimm Brothers stories. For example, Hansel and Gretel who had discovered the wicked witch’s house in the woods. However, nowadays, Black Forest is listed among the favorite tourist destinations.
You are going to start the private trip from any location convenient for you in Zurich. Sit back and relax in one of our comfortable cars or minivans. Now, you can admire the passing never-ending green woodlands as well as the Lake Schluchsee. Upon arriving at the heart of Black Forest – Titisee-Neustadt, you will be free to wander around.
In the Alemannic dialect Teti means “little child” or “baby”. So, Titisee would then be translated as a lake from which, following the regional legend, children came.
In Titisee, you can spend your leisure time by exploring the area on your own. Another option is to take an optional boat ride or taste the region’s well-known dessert – Black Forest cake. It is being prepared from chocolate, whipped cream and cherry brandy!
Also, you can dedicate some of your leisure time to make a visit to the Drubba Clock Shop, where you will be amazed by the large collection of the original Cuckoo Clocks.
Next, continue the journey and travel to the Rhine Falls, where you will be amazed by the breathtaking view of Rhine River. It is considered as the most spectacular waterfall in Europe.
Due to the traditionally formed border between different countries, Rhine was an inspiration for many impressive man-made structures such as castles or other fascinating buildings. However, for the most part, the natural attractiveness of the river overshadows such architectural works.
Here you will enjoy the fresh air and watch as the waters of Rhine Falls pour down from a 23-meter height.
Afterwards, the friendly driver will transfer you back to your starting point leaving you with happy memories.
