Gourmet stroll at Christmas in the Black Forest

Take a stroll through southwest Germany at Christmastime. Discover the Black Forest, frozen, rolling landscapes of pines, pastures and farms, vineyards and cottages. Enjoy the charm of quaint towns and villages, with their regional architecture and old timbered houses. In late November, these are adorned with decorations and lights for the traditional Christmas markets. Don’t miss the enchanting Ravenna Gorge Christmas Market, located just under the railway viaduct of Höllental. Come and appreciate the artisanal traditions of the region such as woodworking, and indulge in gourmet discoveries: smoked speck and charcuteries, soups, tartes flambées, mountain cheeses, pastries, chocolates and traditional Christmas breads, without forgetting to enjoy a glass of schnapps to toast Saint Nicolas.
