Trip in 2017to Bad Säckingen and the southern Black Forest

Leaving early Friday evening allows us time to settle into accomodation in Bad Säckingen, to see the town or take a walk along the Rhine or around a lake, or to go to the Aqualon spa for a swim and sauna. (Included in the open swimming price is a clothed sauna.)

Others can leave early on Saturday morning and meet up between 9 and 10 am. Same on Sunday for a day trip. For instance Berne 08:04 with two changes to Bad Säckingen at 10:00.

The return by train is possible every half hour from 15:37 to 21:37, taking around 110 minutes. So we are not limited by any deadline in Bad Säckingen.

Activities in Säckingen see

Activities in the southern Black Forest see and

Alternative accomodation in Waldshut, Griessen, Bad Dürrheim, and near Lake Constance, for future trips.

Please comment directly to me or on this forum. Graham
