A Trip To The Black Forest in Germany, My Sunday Photo

My recent trip to Germany was one of those incredible trips where you can’t quite believe you are there and everything is so breathtakingly beautiful.

Baden Baden is such a stunning part of Germany. And one that is lucky to boast the Black Forest. An area I have heard so much about but never been lucky enough to visit. 

The thing is there is no reason we hadn’t visited. It was purely because Germany was never on our radar before my trip to Stuttgart at Christmas for the Markets. But wow as a region it is not only incredible beautiful but has so much to offer families.

I love these pictures I took from the Black Forest. They will always remind me of one of those moments in life, when you are surrounded by such beauty that you can’t quite believe it. You feel almost emotional. And there is something special about standing on what feels like the top of the world in Germany so high up you can see France.

And of course you can’t visit the Black Forest and not try out its famous Gateaux. I have to say it did not disappoint.

    It looks beautiful! I’ve heard good things about the region from others too. Maybe I need to persuade my family to take a trip there?

    Germany is incredibly beautiful. If you get a chance I recommend a visit to Hammelburg. There’s a lovely water mill there owned by a lady called Christa. She rents out apartments at the mill and will even show the kids around, taking them on a tour and showing them how the mill works to generate electricity.

    The Black Forest is stunning, it really is a fairy tale part of the world. Last time I stayed there we went glamping in the heart of the black forest, and woke up to snow the next day! i was so grateful for our little wood burner that night! 😀 #mondayescapes

    I visited Germany this year (after 10 years or so) and it was love at first sight. I used to say I want to live in Spain but I feel like living in Germany now. I went to the Black Forest long time ago but barely saw anything. Can you provide exact details of what places you revisited? Maybe you are going to write about it later. #MondayEscapes

    The Black Forest was one of my favourite parts of my last trip to Germany. Such amazing views and great food. I don’t think I tried the gateaux though! More reason to return!!

      Yes you are so right, I just adored everything about Germany and the Back Forest, wow x

    I have never holidayed in Germany, but the Black Forest sounds so lovely. I’ve been talking to Europa Park about visiting, so I’m hoping to add on some time in the Black Forest while we’re there.

    The scenery is really gorgeous. Greenery gets me every time. I’ve always been a big fan of fairy tales, and I’ve wanted to visit that part of the world for that reason. I also have to say that I love your dress in these photos. #MondayEscapes

    Glad to hear you had such a lovely time! It is a beautiful region. I lived in Bavaria for a year and truly could not get enough of the German countryside (although I only got to visit the Black Forest once). #MondayEscapes

    Gorgeous photos of you Sarah with that beautifully scenery in the background. That black forest gateau looks seriously yummy!
