Some years ago, during a summer trip in Germany, I met some people who told me how amazing the Black Forest was. So, a few days ago I decided to see it with my own eyes.
Let´s start with this gorgeous University town of Heidelberg, whose old town is visited every year by thousand of tourists. One of the first humans evidence in Europe was found in this beautiful place.
Furthermore, it is located in a valley under the attentive glance of its Castle. Its baroque buildings and its churches provide the city with a charm which can be enjoyed from both sides of the river.
Famous due to its casino and its therms this small but charming city is located in the foothills of the black forest. Its cute cafeterias and its colorful gardens invite the visitor to have a nice walk around the city. Furthermore, it is easy to find the well-known “black forest cake” in any place.
The Black Forest
Although no one knows exactly why this place receives this name, if it is due to the color of the fir trees or due to the Romans, it is an amazing area. Not only because of its size but also because of the nice things that the visitor can find on it. Going up hills the visitor can contemplate waterfalls and huge lakes. The views are gorgeous and the possibility to disconnect walking around the forest is always a nice idea.
