Indian Girl Foreign Land
Before you start craving for a black forest flavored pastry after reading this title, do read this new post ;-) Having teased you enough, let me present to you a wonderful location of Europe, which should not be skipped at all while you make a trip to Europe or Germany.
|Indian Lifestyle Blog / Travel files : The beautiful memories of Black Forest, Germany|
Black forest is the highest and largest mountain range of Germany and now for me, a regular holiday spot. 4 hours away from Mainz (by car), Black Forest appears to be an incredible piece of nature which soothes your eyes and soul with its immense beauty, freshness and energy.
The natural beauty of Germany and few friends here have made me a big hiking and trekking enthusiast. Walking for long in jungles with a backpack, unlimited talks and constant admiration of the outstanding view around have become my favorite hobby. So, for a person like me, 'Black forest' is like a shrine to be visited without fail. ;-)
But, at the same time if you are looking forward to sight-seeing or relaxing and rejuvenating yourself than also it's still a so called shrine. We were there for 3 days, which were just insufficient to see even quarter of the 'black forest' .
It was quiet cold there even in the month of August, but you will be surprised to know that this place is more occupied by visitors in the peak months of winters to pursue the fun of 'skiing''. Pre-bookings of stay are highly recommended as it is a visitor's all-time favorite holiday spot. Most of the houses there have turned themselves into hotel and we too stayed in a similar one. First day, after our arrival we were enough late to go for the several activities, so we chose to hike for few kilometers only.
The dense forest, small waterfalls at places, the sight of light green grass with the dark green trees rather filled us with more energy to walk and pose ;-)
The second day there, turned more exciting when we were given some complimentary vouchers from the hotel to access the various activities. We immediately rushed for the first adventure which was a 'Rollercoaster''.
We had to wait enough in the line, but the experience of going up to the mountain in an open trolley and coming down on 2.9 km long roller coaster made my day.

This experience was then the topic for the lunch till the time we did not finish the delicious Italian food followed by an exotic cup of dessert and a beautiful location around. We had many vouchers but limited time. Yogesh wanted me to take to the places where he have already been, so next we moved towards 'feldsee', a very beautiful lake surrounded with the mountains from all sides. It was the call of further hiking for 4 km on a tough passage.
One thing that cannot be afforded to be missed are the houses of Black forest. A big 'wow' for them. The dark brown wooden hut style houses decorated with different colored flowers makes the place. Next day also, we could not utilize more vouchers as we had to leave for Paris after little sight-seeing.
We visited another very beautiful waterfall of 97 metres long, which was still not the biggest waterfall of Black forest. So, all in all this amazingly beautiful place left me with so many reasons to come back soon. And I will be there soon to reveal more about it here for you all.
And here are some more photographs for you guys to enjoy.
