Was reminiscing about our stay in Black Forest, Germany. Can't beat the beauty of the woods, mountain roads, small trails that lead off into the forest, the cuckoo clocks everywhere and the absolutely fantastic, bracing summer weather. We spent a glorious two days there, and would dearly love to do it again. One of the best parts of the stay was our B&B - you will not believe the quality of the place. At one of our next stops, we stayed at the Novotel in Colmar and this B&B just blew the Novotel away. Lesson learnt - when traveling in Western Europe, just go with the traditional accommodation. The location was also perfect, right next to a babbling brook (a small stream actually), right next to a large house-sized cuckoo clock (operated by 1 Euro). Brilliant, refreshing and absolutely high on repeat value.
