The previous day…

We departed Strasbourg by train to get to Gengenbach. The train journey is about an hour in total but involves 1 train change in Offenburg

The hotel we stayed at, Die Reichsstadt. It was only 10 in the morning, way before check-in time but the lady owner allowed us to go into our rooms after making a comment that we are early. Well, we had to come by train and we have to fit the train time and not the other way…

After checking in, we found a restaurant in the main square to have lunch. We ordered some stroganoff meat with spaetzle

can’t come to Black Forest without trying a slice of Black Forest where it originated. I noticed the real Black Forest comes with pastry at the bottom

After feeding ourselves, we rented bicycles from the hotel and half cycled to the hilltop. The other half was pushing the bike because it was quite steep
