The Black Forest

See the inspiration for the Brothers’ Grimm fairy tales for yourself by taking a trip through the rich delights of the Black Forest. This wooded corner of southern Germany is dotted with traditional half-wooded villages, thermal spring towns, boutique restaurants and vineyards, not to mention one of the best networks of driver-friendly B roads in Europe. 

The itinerary

  • Day Day 1: Stuttgart

    Accommodation: Le Meridien Hotel, Stuttgar

    Arrive in Stuttgart and check into the luxurious Le Meridian Hotel in the city centre. Enjoy the spa facilities of the hotel or take a short trip to the Mercedes Benz Museum, one of the most comprehensive automotive marque museums in the world.

  • Day Day 2: Freiburg via Lichtenstein Castle and Titisee

    Accommodation: Colombi Hotel, Freiburg Old Town

    In the morning, we’ll deliver your car to the Le Meridien and after a quick familiarisation and safety walk-through, you’ll leave Stuttgart for Lichtenstein Castle. Spend some time exploring this enchanting neo-Gothic masterpiece, then get back behind the wheel and stretch the legs of your vehicle on some of the unrestricted sections of the autobahn as you make your way towards the Black Forest. 

    Called ‘The Driver’s Forest’ by local motoring enthusiasts, the southern part of the Black Forest features countless great backroads that beg to be explored. On today’s tour, we’ll guide you along some of our hand-picked favourites.

    In the evening, arrive in Freiburg, the sunniest city in Germany. You’ll have plenty of time to wander along this historic town’s cobblestoned pavements, explore its cosy cafes, bars and restaurants, and soak up the old quarter’s vibrant atmosphere.

  • Day Day 3: Baden-Baden via Route 500 & Baiersbronn

    Accommodation: Roomers Baden Baden Autograph Hote

    After an exceptional buffet breakfast at Colombi, wind your way across the sinewy byways of the forest to the town of Kniebis and its purpose-built viewing platform. From here, take a short drive to Baiersbronn, the gastronomic capital of the Black Forest. With the highest concentration of Michelin Stars in Germany, the only difficulty here is deciding which restaurant to dine at.

    After your gourmet feast, hit the road again – this time across some of the Black Forest’s lesserknown landscapes towards the tranquil Lake Mummelsee, nestled alongside route 500. Running along a ridge, this famous stretch of tarmac is the backbone of the region’s abundant road network and offers panoramic views across the Black Forest.

    Head to the spa town of Baden-Baden, but not without taking a break at one of the Black Forests premier vineyards, which features a restored castle housing a worldclass restaurant and wine tasting cellar.

    Once you arrive in the spa town of Baden-Baden, check into your home for the night: the designer Roomers Autograph Hotel, with its luxurious spa facilities and rooftop bar overlooking the resort town. The hotel’s midday check-out the next day is the icing on the cake.

  • Day Day 4: Stuttgart via Calw & Zuffenhausen

    Accommodation: Le Meridien Hotel, Stuttgart

    Today, take the wooded road to the town of Bad Wildbad: a breath of fresh air with its thermal baths and trafficfree streets. Not much further along the road is Calw: a town that is consistently voted the prettiest in the Black Forest. Enjoy a relaxing lunch in the picturesque town square of this charming village.

    Motoring back into the outskirts of Stuttgart, the final stop for the day will be in the famous locale of Zuffenhausen, the home of Porsche. The marques museum, restaurant and showroom complex is compact compared to its crosstown counterpart, Mercedes, but no less fascinating, with its display of famous race-winning cars and worldclass restaurant.

    Check-in to the Le Meridien and the evening is yours to explore the architecture and dining precinct of downtown Stuttgart, or just relax in the hotel’s spa area.

  • Day Day 5: Stuttgart

    In the morning, we’ll meet you at the hotel to pick up your car. The rest of the day is yours to explore the Baden-Württemberg capital. 

  • & more

Drive

The spine of the Black Forest’s road network is Route 500. This famously scenic road is flanked by countless classic, uncrowded byways. There’s also plenty of opportunities to explore your car’s limits of the unrestricted sections of autobahn surrounding Stuttgart.
