Combine your trip to Oberammergau with five additional days in the Black Forest
Enjoy some of Germany’s highlights on this tour incorporating the renowned Oberammergau Passion Play and the Black Forest. Following the cultural performance in Oberammergau, head to the Schwarzwald to relax. As Germany’s most varied holiday region, this is one of the largest and best-known areas of the country.
With its spruce and fir-covered mountains, gentle valleys, timber farmhouses, extravagant traditional costumes and of course the delicious Black Forest Gâteau, this truly is not to be missed. While enjoying this area, visit the wonderful sunny Freiburg. A large Gothic Cathedral presides over this town of squares and cafes. The lakeside resort of Titisee is simply breathtaking, and the perfect place to reflect after your trip to Oberammergau. For delightful local charm, visit the Cuckoo Clock Museum. During your stay, don’t forget to enjoy the area’s other major export: Gateau!
