    Beginning our holiday, we’ll make our way to Oberharmersbach through Metz, where we’ll be able to stop for a short visit. In Oberharmersbach, we’ll stay at the Hotel Baren and are bound to enjoy this picturesque German town. 

    Our first included excursion will take us to Strasbourg and Gengenbach, two stunning destinations. In Strasbourg, the capital of the Alsace region, we’ll have chance to absorb the festive atmosphere and browse the popular market stalls, as well as seeing the sights, such as the cathedral, the city’s Old Town, and Strasbourg’s medieval bridges. Meanwhile, in the traditional town of Gengenbach, we’ll find a charming location with beautiful architecture and surrounding Black Forest scenery. 

    Next, we’ll visit Baden Baden, situated in the foothills of the Black Forest and on the banks of the Oos River. There are lots of stunning sights here, from the city’s Old Castle, to its Old Town filled with historical buildings along quaint cobblestone streets.
