To see why so many tourists choose Black Forest as a place to spend their vacation time, make sure you and your companions see a bit more of the area. You'll also find Endingen am Kaiserstuhl, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Biederbach 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northwest.
Around 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the south of Meissenheim is Freiburg, a regional city which is home to Breisacher Gate, Schlossberg and Muensterplatz. Ensure you don't rush back to Meissenheim until you've visited Freiburg's Freiburg Concert Hall, Freiburg Theater and New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus).
Visit Black Forest 's theaters, nature museums and art museums. These are great places to explore, particularly on overcast or inclement days. Spirituality is a vital element of every place's DNA, so set aside some time to visit the area's many monasteries and other important religious sites.
Why not try some wintersports while you are in this area? Snow shoeing is a good option. Another possibility is snowboarding. This place also has a number of once in a lifetime experiences such as paragliding.
At the end of your adventure in Meissenheim, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your euros on last-minute souvenirs, and bid Tschüss (farewell) to this unique part of the world.
