The Black Forest and the Rhine Falls were in my bucket list for so long. I was excited to visit these places and I loved the place. Not only did I enjoyed my visit but also loved learning the craft of Titisee. This was a new experience that I had in my life and I cannot forget learning this craft. The best part of the trip was having a black forest cake in the black forest. I would totally recommend you to plan your trip to the Black forest.

Started the journey early in the day so that I can enjoy the beauty of the Black mountains. I was thrilled to visit the largest waterfall in Europe. The best part about this trip was when we learnt the craft of Titisee. An experience to remember for life.
