Departure Time

9:00 AM
Meet your private guide for this day trip outside your central Strasbourg hotel and climb aboard the awaiting air-conditioned minivan. Settle in for the scenic trip into southern Germany. The trip to Freiburg takes about an hour, during which your guide can answer questions and set the stage for what you’ll see and do that day.

Freiburg is an historic university town inside one of Germany’s main wine-growing regions and not far from the Black Forest. After you arrive, you’ll follow your guide on a walking tour around the town. Pass stately townhomes as you walk through cobblestoned streets and squares, hearing about Freiburg’s history and architecture dating back to the 11th century.

Admire the Freiburg Minster — the town’s majestic sandstone cathedral — that overlooks Münsterplatz square. Take in the impressive sight, with the decorative doorway and many spires and carved gargoyles looking down. Wander the narrow streets around the cathedral to see things like the arcades of the Kaufhaus and the little brooks running near the Minster.

Spend some time seeing Freiburg at your leisure after your walking tour, during which you can do some shopping or get some lunch (own expense) before getting back into the minivan for the next part of your tour.

Drive through the beautiful Black Forest, passing through dense forested areas to see storybook hamlets tucked deep inside. Learn from your guide how this area served as the inspiration for many of the fairy tales penned by the Brothers Grimm. There are plenty of photo-worthy sights along the scenic drive, so keep your camera handy.

After a drive through the Black Forest, head back to Strasbourg. Your tour ends when you’re dropped off again at your hotel.

Beautiful day in the Black Forest

Florence was a great guide. Freiburg is a very charming college town with tons of history and character. We had a lovely outdoor lunch in the market square with Florence & , because we were interested in the local wines, she took us to her favorite wine shop. The drive through the Black Forest & stop at the lake was so scenic & beautiful. The lake town is lovely & we indulged in Black Forest cake at the local bakery. Florence was a wealth of knowledge & we thoroughly enjoyed this trip.

Good tour to do when you are in Strasbourg. We especially enjoyed Titisee and wished we could have spent more time there. Arianne, our guide, gave good insights about the places we visited. There was good balance of structured tour and free time

Our guide, Florence, spoke excellent English. Her descriptions of Strasbourg, Freiburg and the countryside were always interesting. She was very helpful but also gave us time on our own to explore. Good driver, also. Our day with Florence was a highlight of our trip!!

Booked this tour through Viator for 8 people, and had a minivan that comfortably seated all of us. Our tour guide/driver was Jean Yves, with local tour operator Ophorus. He did a wonderful job of explaining to us the history and pertinent facts of all the areas we traveled through on this tour, took us to a favored local restaurant in the hills overlooking Freiburg for lunch, and also went out of his way to take us to a great shop in the Black Forest for quality souvenirs, as our tour was on a Sunday, and most shops are closed. He maintained a great sense of humor, and made us feel that he was enjoying our company as much as we enjoyed his! Highly recommend this tour!

Amazing trip to Freiburg and the Black Forest. Definitely worth it. Freiburg is an enchanting town, right out of a fairy tale book so is the lake area around the black forest region. Beautiful landscapes on our way back to Strasbourg, passing thru breath-taking villages and vineyards. Our guide Danielle was very knowledgeable and helpful, she made sure to follow our own pace and make the best out of the tour.
