Situated in South West Germany, the beautiful Black Forest was named after its great canopy of towering pine trees, that is so dark and dense, even the sun can’t penetrate the forest floor. Known for its elegant cuckoo clocks, Brothers Grimm fairytales and half-timbered houses with pretty flower boxes lining windows and balconies, the Black Forest is completely charming.
Explore on foot as you walk along leafy forest trails, following the bubbling Ravenna stream through this mysterious forest. Cross wooden footbridges, pass moss-lined rocks and admire cascading waterfalls, including the Great Ravenna Fall plummeting 16 metres and the Little Ravenna Fall at 6 metres high. At the end of your walk, sample the region’s famous ‘Black Forest Cake’ at a charming German-style inn. This well-earned chocolate sponge cake, sandwiched with two layers of whipped cream and sweet cherry syrup, is decorated with rich, dark, fresh cherries on top and is heaven on a plate.
