After a days cycling around Lake Constance, we decided it prudent to move on and into the Black Forest. I’d been remise in checking my Facebook messages and not realised the Sebastian had replied, confirming that he and Nadine would be joining us along the Rhine for a weekend of hiking. That left us with a few miles to cover, so we headed into the forest and found a parking spot for the night.
On Friday, we took the Route 500 (the Schwarzwald Hockstrasse) north across the forest towards Baden-Baden. This is renowned as a great driving route, and out of season there isn’t much traffic, just sweeping bend after sweeping bend. Not quite the thrill ride in a 4 tonne motorhome, but you could see what fun it would be on a motorbike or in an open topped sports car.
Alas it was a whistle stop tour, but we had a BBQ appointment with Sebastian and Nadine at Bingen am Rhine.
