The Black Forest – August 2017

Welcome to the second Switzerland post….I hope you’re not bored yet! 😛

A few days ago we drove to the Black Forest in Germany – it took around an hour to get there as it was only just over the border. As you may be aware, the Black Forest is a huge place, so we went specifically to Todtmoos and then to Blasien.

The drive itself was pretty awesome. Once we’d got across the border and out of the roads all you could see were green fields for miles around. We stopped a few times along the windy road to take photographs and gaze at the beautiful scenery. We first went to a little village called Todtmoos. I was so impressed by how Swiss (or German!) it looked. Everything looked like something out of a TV set! From the wooden signs to the background of trees it was breath taking. The trees actually reminded me of the intro to one of the Twilight movies where they pan over the trees. We found a church which had very unusual decor and then stopped for cake/drinks at a local cafe.

Our second (and last) stop was Blasien. We didn’t explore this town as much as we mainly went there to see the Domo (cathedral). The Domo was completely white inside – which was not what I was expecting when I walked through the door! It was a great day and I was thoroughly wiped out by the time we got back!

Enjoy the photos as always!
