    Day 50 - Cuckoo Clocks Cuckoo

    September 22 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Another dreadful night sleep, which undoubtedly is down to the ridiculously soft pillows. We are now looking forward to our own hard pillows at home.

    We had breakfast at 9.00am, it was the same fare of meats, cheese & bread.

    We then drove to Triberg Waterfall, which is Germany’s highest waterfall. It was a steep walk down a path to the entrance & we had to pay €6 each for the privilege. It initially seemed a bit steep, but a path took us around & over it. It wasn’t spectacular in size, but the fir trees & mossy rocks made it very atmospheric & probably worth the entrance fee. It was a long steep walk back to the car.

    We drove to Triberg town & invested €1 in 45 minutes worth of parking. We then located an ATM & got some cash out & bought two slices of Black Forest Gateau. Triberg is the home of Black Forest Gateau allegedly, so when in Rome....... Triberg is also full of cuckoo clock shops & workshops.

    At midday we departed Triberg & 5 minutes later just north of the town at Elbe Uhren-Park, we found the Largest Cuckoo Clock in the world, according to the Guinness book of records. The bumf describes the clock as 16.73 yards tall, the cuckoo as 4.9 yards long & weighing 331 pounds. Despite it’s size, it still delivers the typical Cuckoo Call every full hour and every half hour.

    We parked up, ate our BFG & waited for the largest cuckoo clock to do its thing. On the stroke of 12.30pm, the cuckoo appeared, spluttered a hardly audible cuckoo type noise & was gone before I could press record on my phone. It had been pathetic & quite frankly an embarrassment!

    We headed north & called in to the Spa town of Baden Baden. We saw a fountain, then continued around the French border another 150 miles to Trier. It wasn’t the most exciting drive, motorways with fir trees hugging both sides of the road. The only thing of note was that we passed by the Hockenheimring, a famous motor racing circuit.

    Around 5.30pm, we rolled into Trier & quickly located the Porta Nigra. The Porta Nigra (Latin for black gate) is a large Roman city gate in Trier. It is today the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps, built in grey sandstone just before the year 200. Again it was a case of abandoning the car, snap a few photos & move on. Trier looks like it deserves a proper visit in the future.

    We then drove a further 25 miles north to our Hotel, Vogtshof von Wettlesdorf in Schonecken. It turned out to be a bikers pub, but the accommodation luckily was in a separate building. We have a massive triple room.

    Whilst unpacking, I very annoyingly discovered I left my favourite t-shirt hanging up in one of the last hotels we stayed in. Jackie has emailed them. That evening we went to the local pizzeria and we both had exceptionally good Schnitzels with chips & salad.

    Triberg es a vizeses

    June 7, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Baden-Baden után folytattuk utunkat a Fekete erdő belsejébe, hogy megnézzük Németország legmagasabb vízeséset, a Triberg vizesest. Már maga a városka is nagyon cuki, helyes, színes kis házakkal van tele, és a domborzata sem egyhangú, nagyon jó hangulata van. Ráadásul minden harmadik üzlet Kuckuksuhren-t árul, rengeteg fele, típusú, méretű van belole. Így nagyon viccesek, de azért ha otthon kakukkolna minden órában, lehet hogy nem lenne sokaig életben az óra. Miután megtaláltuk a vizeseshez vezeto park főbejáratat, kitaláltuk, hogy megcsináljuk a piros túrát, de előtte, hogy bírjuk ettünk egy jó kis feketeerdo sonkatalat ha már a Fekete erdőben voltunk 😃 így legalább volt mi lemozogni 😉 a vízesés pedig csodaszep, nem szabad kihagyni. Az egész termeszetvedelmi terület szépen gondozott és kialakitott, ha valaki nem csak a vizesesre kiváncsi 3 kulonbozo túra útvonal közül lehet választani, kulonbozo tavokkal. És rengeteg cuki mókus rohangál az útvonalon ami külön remek. A túra útvonalon talalhato egy Bergsee nevű to, aminek az érdekessége hogy 1924ben itt rendeztek meg a műkorcsolya EB-t mert Berlinben nem volt eleg hideg hozza. Szép a to nagyon, de nem mondana meg az ember h kori EB volt itt valaha 😃Read more

    Triberg

    August 29 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Wir konnten offen losfahren, der ganze Schwarzwald lag vor uns! Wir wollten gegen 15:00 in Zürich sein.

    Cruiser war genial. Wir hatten nur einmal in Triberg gehalten, die Schilder von dem größten Wasserfalls Deutschland waren zu verlockend.

    Triberg liegt wild romantisch zwischen tief eingeschnittenen Tälern im Herzen des Schwarzwaldes. Deutschlands höchste Wasserfälle stürzen hier über 163 m in 7 Fallstufen zu Tal.

    Triberg

    June 3, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Triberg, un villaggio quasi alpino, dove le casette tipiche si alternano a residenze turistiche più moderne e impersonali, ma molto popolare almeno per due motivi:  le cascate e perché vanta la paternità degli orologi a cucù. Nella casa dei miei nonni c’era un cucù e ricordo che da bambina non riuscivo a sottrarmi al fascino kitsch di quella casetta appesa al muro, da cui usciva un rumoroso uccellino.
    Ma l’attrazione top di Triberg sono le cascate,  le più alte di tutta la Germania. Il fiume Gutach fa una serie di balzi fra una massi tondeggianti e una vegetazione fitta e verde e scende verso valle in un paesaggio molto suggestivo. Il percorso è a pagamento anche il biglietto costa 3 euro.
