We say a sad goodbye to Gutenberg and start the steep climb out of the valley. We didn’t complete our walk but we meet some lovely people, have eaten some of the best Black Forest Gataeu and give the Hymer’s heating system a test. If the weather cleared a little we planned a drive to Mount Brend as the views over this side of the Forest are claimed to be spectacular, but we can barely see 100 metres in the mist we just continue north.
We stop briefly in Triberg, fuel up the Hymer, refill the fridge at the Lidl and take in the a tourist town with more Cuckoo shops than parking spots.
It’s time to get serious about heading back to England and putting the Hymer to bed for 2106. We need to get ourselves back to the warmth of an Australian summer. So we turn west toward Freiburg, half an hour later we see a castle on a hill overlooking the town of Waldkirch decide to stop.
