We'll be based in Basel and we plan to do a one day outing to the black forest. Not really interested in hiking. We're more interested in museums and seeing quaint german towns and eating german food. We're travelling with three children ages 5, 7 and 10. We won't have a car. My initial though was to travel Basel to Freiburg. See the town. Travel to Staufen. Back to Freiburg (as I think we need to for the train). Then travel Triberg-Gengenbach-Offenburg. Then either back to basel or to Strasbourg and then from there to Basel. My problem is that I'm having difficulty planning the route becauuse it seems that all trains from Frieburg to Triberg go through Offenburg. I'd like to eliminate backtracking if I can.
Can anyone suggest a good route to take?
Does this day trip look ok or should we add or delete something?
And recommendations would be wonderful!
