Music Tours to the Black Forest

  • Perform in both France and Germany
  • Forests, hills and lakes
  • Modern and traditional attractions

The Black Forest lies in the south west corner of Germany, bordering both France and Switzerland. It is an area of lush forests and pastures, clear deep lakes and rolling hills, making it one of Germany’s most popular holiday centres. The region is also famous for its local crafts such as cuckoo clocks, glass blowing and the mouthwatering cake. You can still see these all of these being made in the traditional way.

Where to stay

The lovely Hotel Wacker is situated in the heart of the picturesque town of Lahr, in the northern part of the Black Forest. The hotel is family-owned and has 70 beds – all rooms have a private bathroom and all are of a good standard. Other facilities at the hotel include a function room, dining room and bar. You will certainly receive a warm welcome here and you will enjoy being able to walk out into the cobbled streets of this picturesque little town to enjoy the shops and lively cafes. Groups travelling to this area also stay in Strasbourg. Please call us for more details.

Festival ideas

Choirs can take part in St Blasien’s annual Internationale Domkonzerte during July, which takes place in the awe-inspiring cathedral.

Concerts

The area is suitable for all music group types, from youth orchestras to sacred choirs. There is a wealth of spa resorts across the Black Forest, where well-equipped halls as well as beautiful pavilions are available for our groups. These include Bad Peterstal, Bad Krozingen and the chic town of Baden-Baden, where there are regular concert series attracting large audiences. Many places of worship enthusiastically welcome choirs; Strasbourg (just over the French border) and Freiburg cathedrals accept our sacred choirs to sing Mass, while a number of churches enjoy our groups’ recitals. For groups with an ‘entertainment’ repertoire, a concert in the region’s theme park, Europapark, is recommended.
