Black Forest and Rhine Falls Day Trip from Zurich

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Settle aboard your luxury coach, departing central Zurich for the approximate 1.5-hour drive north to southern Germany. Watch the scenery slip past, including Lake Schluchsee, as you approach the picturesque town of Titisee-Neustadt, situated on the edge of Lake Titisee in the heart of the Black Forest. 

    Your guide makes a stop in town for about two hours, starting with a visit to the prestigious Drubb clockmaker. Step inside the shop and learn about the traditional art of producing cuckoo clocks, the area’s renowned export.

    During your free time, explore the town independently. Stroll at your leisure around Lake Titisee or take an optional boat ride. Perhaps head to a cafe to taste the region’s signature chocolate and cherry cake, Black Forest Gateau — aka Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. (Activities and food are your own expense.)

    When it’s time, meet up with your guide and re-board the coach for the drive south back toward Switzerland. You’ll journey through the spruce forests of Lenzkirch until you reach the Upper Rhine region. Before returning to Zurich, disembark at the impressive Rhine Falls to watch the waters of the Rhine River crashing down a 75-foot (23-meter) drop. During a 45-minute break here, stroll around admiring the scenery and posing for photos.

    Your 7-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the starting point in the evening.

    THIS IS NOT A GOOD TOUR FOR PEOPLE WITH DIFFICULTY WALKING AROUND. The drive to the different stops is full of some really great scenery and quaint little towns, but the trip should start at 11:00 am. The first stop in Titisee is very nice...More

    This day trip sounds nice. However, it is done in a hurry with not much time to enjoy the pretty places.

    The optional boat ride at the Rhine Falls really is a must; if you’ve come this far pay the extra $10 euro each to go on the boat. It was beautiful but a ton of stairs! The town was quaint and we r joyed some...More

    Hi! All trips begin and end at Sihlquai bus parking lot behind the Zurich BH (Central train station). The easiest way to get there from the airport is by train.
