Germany's famous Black Forest disappoints more people than it excites. If that's all Germany offered, it would be worth seeing. For Europeans, any large forest is a popular attraction. But I'd say the average American visitor who's seen more than three trees in one place would prefer Germany's Romantic Road and Bavaria to the east, the Rhine and Mosel country to the north, the Swiss Alps to the south, and France's Alsace region to the west all high points that cut the Black Forest down to stumps.Well, those other places are pretty nice too. I'd especially go back to the Mosel Valley in a heartbeat. But I think the Black Forest is more than just "more than three trees in one place". How many places in America can you go hiking in the forest and buy spring-cooled schnapps at the pathside on an honor system? Yeah, I can't think of any either.
Try it sometime, Rick!
