Our Viking Rhine Getaway begins in Breisach, Germany with a 1.5-hour bus ride up into the Black Forest mountains. We stopped at Hofgut Sternen, which was once a medieval horse station and now a little commercial village. We heard about cuckoo clock-making and ate Black Forest cake while a chef showed how to make it.

In the afternoon, we walked up the (steep!) hill in Breisach to the cathedral in the old walled city. It was so beautiful! We love to wander around our port cities, so we rarely book an afternoon excursion.
