Entertainment And Dining Out
Take a few hours to explore The Black Forest (Schwarzwald). This area gets its name from a dark canopy of evergreens, though you will also find areas dotted with open slopes and farmland. A 20-minute walk from even the most crowded spot in the forest will put you in a quiet countryside with views of traditional farmhouses. These hikes aren’t difficult, and the nature you will discover isn’t wild, but picturesque. Hausbrauerei Feierling is one of the best beer gardens in the area. This microbrewery entices crowds to sample not only the brews, but the food. The restaurant caters for vegetarians and visitors looking for monster-sized schnitzels.
