What was your favourite place/s on your Albatross tour?
What was the most amazing thing you saw or did on your Albatross tour?
Also, the Flower Island of Mainau was definitely a show stopper with its expansive gardens and flower sculptures, the entire island was perfectly picturesque.
Tell us about your most memorable moment on tour?
For me the entire trip was and will always be memorable, however one thing that does stand out, despite not being part of our tour (just a perfect coincidence), was The Viehscheid aka 'when the cows come home'. This is an annual event in Schwangau where the locals dress the cows in decorative bells and head dresses and themselves in traditional clothing to bring the cows down from the mountain tops for the winter.
What was your favourite meal on tour?
My favourite meal was the three course meal we had on our last night at the Waldhotel Luise in Freudenstadt, I chose the crispy pork belly as my starter followed by beef cheeks that literally fell apart in your mouth. Then for desert, I ordered the choc-mint mousse and also finished my Mum's creme brulee. Everything was delicious!
What advice do you have for anyone interested in travelling on this tour?
A few things I was glad to have packed were comfortable walking shoes and a versatile wardrobe. I also found it extremely handy to have some coinage on hand at all times as most of the public restrooms charged.
Would you recommend this tour to family and friends?
Absolutely yes, I enjoyed every day, the sites and places were amazing.
