Adventures by Disney Rhine River Cruise Day Two - Strasbourg, France

Today we arrived at our first stop along the Rhine, Strasbourg, France where guests had the choice of one of the following three activities:

1. Travel by motorcoach through the Black Forest to an outdoor toboggan run, explore the hisorty of life on a farm, create a custom cuckoo bird whistle and sample Black Forest Cake.

2. Tour the Black Forest and zipline through the trees and then leisurely hike to Germany's highest waterfalls in Triberg.

3. Visit the charming medieval town of Riquewihr, an inspiration for Belle's village in Beauty and the Beast. Afterwards, explore Alsace region on a guided horseback ride.

We choose Option#1. Here are some pictures from our day in the Black Forest:


We drove through the German Black Forest and arrived at Rodelbahn Schwarzwald, an outdoor tobaggan run.  You control the vehicle as gravity takes it down the mountainside. It a thrilling experience that rivals any theme park ride. 


After an exciting morning, our next stop was Vogtsbauernhof, an open air Farm Museum where we learned how farm life in the Black Forest has evolved over the last 400 years.


During our visit to the farm, we stopped by the Wood Shop for a hands on experience. Our group learned how to make a whistle from Black Forest wood. What a unique souvenir!


We were treated to a delicious lunch of Weiner Schnitzel and met some local young ladies wearing a traditional dress and a Bollenhut. It is customary for unmarried young ladies to wear this wide brimmed hat with 14 red pom poms. Once they are married, they switch to black pom poms. Guess what our dessert was? German Black Forest Cake, of course!


After dinner we went into Strasbourg for a private concert at St. Thomas Church. We were messmerized by the sight and the sound of the carved antique organ on which Wolfgang Amadeus actually played. Simply magical.
