One day in Black Forest by car

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping that someone might be able to help me iron out a plan for our daytrip to the Black Forest in late July. We are a family of 5 (2 adutls and 3 kids ages 7, 9 and 12) We will be starting and ending our day in Freiburg. We will have a car. Ideally we would start the day around 9:00 and end around 19:00 as we still need to take a train back to Basel that evening. I think I have too many things that I'd like to do. Is the following doable without rushing? The bottom line is I don't know how long we'll actually need in each stop. Should I drop one of our stops? If so, which one?

I have two possible driving routes (but I'm absolutely open to others):

1. Frieburg-Gengenbach-Triberg-Breitnau-Todtnau-Utzenfeld-Wieden-Munsteral- Frieburg . I would also like to add Staufen as our first stop after leaving Freiburg or as our last stop on the way back to Freiburg.

Ideally we would stop in Staufen, Gengenbach, Triberg and ideally have an hour or so to explore Freiburg itself.

2. a route recommended on Tripadvisor: Freiburg-kirchgarten-St Peter-Waldkirch-Gutach im Breiseau-Wildgutach-Furtwangen-Triberg-Gengenbach-Freiburg

For this route we would stop in St Peter, Triberg, Gengenbach and have an hour or so to explore Freiburg itself. I'd also like to find a way to fit in Staufen I think.

How long do you think we would want to spend in Gengenbach and Staufen? I'd like to walk around the town, see interesting places from the outside, maybe do a self guided walking tour if I could find one. Is two hours in Gengenbach and one hour in Staufen enough or too much?

I was thinking for Triberg that it would be nice to visit the Black Forest museum, the house of a 1000 clocks, maybe Wallfahrskirche Maria in der Tan and I'd like to buy a cuckoo clock. The waterfalls would be nice to see but we've been to larger so it isn't a must-do for us... I've heard there's a place to get a glimpse from the trees... that would be enough.

I have considered the Vogtsbauernhöfe in Gutach but I think it will take a lot of time and we do plan to visit Ballenburg in Brienz Switzerland so I think we can leave that museum out.

I'd like to walk around Freiburg but again, I'm not sure how much time we need. Is an hour enough?

I'd love input on the driving route, whether we should visit Staufen and the amount of time we should allow for Gengenbach, Triberg and possibly Staufen. Thank you!
