Our goal for the coming weekend is to make for the Black Forest, do a walk or two, look at some cuckoo clocks and eat some black forest gateau. However we cannot pass Bad Waldsee without a visit. So as I mentioned a blog or two ago German towns starting with ‘Bad’ such as Bad Waldsee are generally old roman spa towns or therme towns to use the German expression. Just to add to the complication any town ending in the letters ‘see’ indicates it has a lake nearby.
But that’s not why we are visiting Bad Waldsee. Its the site of the Hymer Museum, Hymer’s German factory and head office. After 10 long years where bringing our Hymer home for a re-union. Well in actual fact its very popular with the Hymer fraternity to visit if your passing so we do…
We had plans to wander about the altstadt of Bad Waldsee but the drizzle has set in again. So we decide driving in the wet is better than sitting around the Hymer all afternoon. We pack up the Hymer and continue west towards the Black Forest. There is a free stellplatz at Tuttlingen and we arrive there in the late afternoon. The weather has cleared a little, so we take a walk into the Zentrum.
