Black Forest - O Tannenbaum... - 3 days


  • Historic Christmas markets in Gengenbach and Freiburg
  • Wild and romantic Christmas market in the Ravenna gorge

A very special highlight during the Advent season is a visit to the romantic Black Forest with the Christmas markets in Gengenbach, Freiburg and the Ravennaschlucht. Numerous Christmas stands have been set up against the backdrop of the town hall in Gengenbach and offer a wide range of local specialities and selected handicrafts. The windows of the town hall are beautifully decorated with motifs and are picturesquely illuminated. The smell of almond and mulled wine is in the air and invites you to taste it. Freiburg's city centre also shines with bright lights. Stroll comfortably over the Christmas market on the town hall square, the potato market or through the Turmstraße. A special highlight is the Christmas market in the Ravenna gorge. Enjoy traditional craftsmanship, local gastronomy and Christmas concerts in the wild and romantic Black Forest ambience.

 



Day 1:   Arrival in Freiburg

Christmas Market Gengenbach

Today you will arrive in the Black Forest. On the way we recommend a visit to Gengenbach, a city that owes its special charm to the precious historic city centre, but also to its fortunate location and mild climate. During a city tour you will see, among other things, the town hall, the tube fountain and also the city church of St. Marien (optional). Afterwards you can stroll comfortably over the Christmas market, which is set up in front of the picturesque backdrop of the town hall. The windows are beautifully decorated with motifs and are beautifully illuminated. Afterwards you drive further to Freiburg to the hotel.

 


Day 2:   Christmas markets in Fribourg and in the Ravennaschlucht

 

Welcome to the Freiburg Christmas Market. Freiburg's old town shines in golden splendour: the Christmas market on Rathausplatz and Unterlindenplatz, the Potato Market as well as in Turm- und Franziskanerstraße opens its gates! Big and small, young and old can be enchanted here by the colourful variety of goods, the sweet scents and glittering lights. In the morning a guided tour through the old town awaits you. In the afternoon you will visit the Christmas market in the Ravenna gorge. This very special Christmas market offers you a wild and romantic Black Forest atmosphere, traditional crafts, local gastronomy and Christmas concerts. The entrance fee for this Christmas market is payable on site (approx. € 4,- p.p.).


DAY 3: Departure

After that you leave the winterly Black Forest. Depending on your route, you should visit one of the other great Christmas markets in the region, e.g. the Christmas market in Heidelberg. It awaits you in both large and small squares. Let yourself be enchanted by the Advent atmosphere: the scent of chestnuts, sugar almonds, cinnamon, cloves and mulled wine runs through the alleys. The castle shines above the roofs of the old town. The Kornmarkt with its famous Madonna statue offers a direct view of Heidelberg Castle.
