Black Forest - Chrysanthemum Festival

Experience the intense oranges, yellows and reds of Autumn like never before.

SUNDAY

Breakfast on board ship. Re-join our coach, continue through Holland into Germany to arrive at the Waldeck Spa Resort.

magnificent Rhine Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in Europe.  We then make our way to the nearby medieval town of Schaffhausen, known as the prettiest town in Switzerland, where the houses of the pedestrianised Old Town are richly decorated with oriel windows and lavishly painted facades. The iconic Munot Fortress towers above the town and can be seen for miles.

TUESDAY

Today we travel to nearby Lahr to discover the historic centre and its thousands of chrysanthemum arrangements that make the most of autumnal colours. See the intricate arrangements on artistic flowered cars and in the form of original and rich cascades decorating the house façades. A varied cultural and musical programme is on offer on the Marktplatz.

WEDNESDAY

At leisure at Waldeck Spa.
