Make a pitstop at Donaueschingen to taste the local cuisine and visit the birthplace of the Danube, one of Europe's longest and mightiest rivers. 


From the vivid and charming city of Freiburg it is only a one-hour train ride through the impressive Höllental (“Hell Valley”) to the Lakes of Titisee or Schluchsee surrounded by dense and calm forests.
