Equity School travel to the Black Forest

School trips to the Black Forest

Cuckoo clocks and glass blowing, straw braiding and wine-making. Velvety hills and forested peaks, mountain lakes and dense conifers. The Black Forest is home to Europe’s biggest wine cellar, the source of the River Danube, and one of the greenest cities in the world.

Take a school trip to the Black Forest for an authentic portrait of traditional Germany. Tour the colourful streets of Freiburg and visit the red tower of Freiburg Münster. Take a cable car up to Schauinsland Mountain for a bird’s eye view of the Black Forest and a glimpse of the Swiss Alps. Discover what makes Baden-Baden so alluring, as you browse the elegant boutiques and watch a concert in the Kurhaus. Explore traditional crafts at the bake-houses and saw mills in Gutach, or learn how to make clocks in Triberg. Nip across to France and visit Strasbourg, or hop over to Switzerland to appreciate the architecture of Basel. Let your hair down at Europa Park as you ride the rollercoasters and watch a Shakespearian play.

A luxurious landscape, bordering France and Switzerland, the Black Forest is a superb destination for school groups wishing to experience a stunning region of Germany, and explore the highlights of its European neighbours. We highly recommend school trips to the Black Forest for German Language and Music Tour groups. At Equity, we offer accommodation in the historical town of Kippenheim - perfectly located for exploring the region’s best attractions, and visiting its neighbouring countries.

Below is a sample of excursions Equity can organise for your school trip to the the Black Forest - for subject specific excursions have a look at the
recommended educational trips for the Black Forest

Europa Park

Located in Rust, Germany’s largest theme park is home to country-themed zones, rollercoasters galore, an interactive ‘Laser Course’, a space exhibition and more. Almost as popular as Disneyland® Paris, this is immersive language learning at its most exciting.

Cable Car to Schauinsland

Ride Germany’s longest two-way gondola system to the top of Schauinsland mountain (1,284m) and take in the panoramic views across Freiburg and the Black Forest – on a clear day you can see as far as the Swiss Alps.

Triberg Falls

Visit Germany’s highest waterfalls and see the Gutach river cascade 163-metres into a rocky valley. The falls are walking distance from the Black Forest town of Triberg and you can hear the roar of water as you wander around the town’s pretty streets.

Glass Blowing in Todtnau or Freiburg

See master glassblowers crafting their works in the green city of Freiburg or in the rural town of Todtnau, where you can also learn about the history of glassblowing in the glass museum.

Lake Titisee

Thought to be named after the Roman Emperor Titus, this 2km lake was formed during the last ice age. It’s a popular spot for swimming, sailing and strolling and, in winter, it’s possible to ice-skate here.

Open Air Museum of the Black Forest

Explore six farmhouses which date back to 1612 and see their accompanying mills, storehouses and bakeries. Learn about the rural culture of the Black Forest, see traditional crafts being made by hand and fine-tune your listening skills during a guided tour.
