Enjoyed the bus trip through the countryside more than the stop to see cake making, cukoo clocks, and glass works. The stop was very touristy, but the guide on the bus was informative.

The scenery was beautiful but there were no stops for photos. The visit to the "village" was very commercial and didn't quite meet our expectations.

Beautiful drive to the Black Forest.

Beautiful drive to the Black Forest. The end stopping point was a bit crowded with lots of cruise ships, seemed kind of like a "tourist trap" with demos and shopping. However, the rest of the day was wonderful.
