Black Forest Panorama

Today we take a scenic coach tour into the heart of the Black Forest. As the Black Forest is at the heart of the clock-making industry, we pay a visit to a cuckoo clock maker, to learn how these intricate clocks are made. At Triberg we enjoy the natural spectacle of one of Germany's highest waterfalls, as the thundering River Gutach makes a plunge of 535 feet (163 metres) over a series of frothing cascades. We have some time for lunch in Triberg before we board a train for a trip on the Schwarzwaldbahn Railway taking us past some truly breathtaking scenery as we travel to Donaueschingen. Here we join the Höllentalbahn Railway, and enjoy stunning views on our way back to Titisee.
