The Baden region in the south-west of the country is a fantastic option for family holidays in Germany, with something to offer all ages, from picturesque mountain villages and traditional Black Forest farms to traditional and Michelin-starred cuisine, museums, spas and Germany's largest theme park - Europa-Park.

Our travel partners (and respected travel writers) have suggested the following itinerary for the perfect short break in Germany for any family looking to make the most of the Black Forest. They have put together a four-day break you take at your own pace (with each destination, attraction and hotel being within an hour's drive from the next), with suggestions for UK-Germany flight routes, family-friendly places to stay, what you can do and see each day (guided tours can be booked to give you a fully-interactive experience with those in the know) and culminating with the pièce de résistance, a fun-filled active day at the theme park.

Further information on this area, and the activities you can do, can be found on the fly-Baden website.


The area is attractive all year round but for this particular trip it is recommended you travel during the warmer months. 


You will stay in a variety of hotels, with one night in each. Although, if you want to stay longer at each hotel (to see and experience more of the area) this is completely up to you. Remember, this is just a suggested itinerary for a 4-day family break.
