Join our optional excursion to the Swiss city of Basel. Basel lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace. There will be free time for you to explore the city and all it has to offer before dinner, with drinks included and entertainment from a one-man band.
Join our included excursion for a scenic morning drive through the winter countryside of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest). Visit the pretty lakeside village of Titisee and take a stroll along the promenade. Marvel at the majesty of the beautiful countryside, with its rolling mountains and snow-covered evergreen forests. We arrive back at our hotel for mulled wine and biscuits.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
