South West Germany has so many hidden gems. One of them is the Black Forest or Schwarzald region. Primarily known for its world famous cuckoo clocks, fairy tales and dense forests, it also has a lot of deeply rooted traditions and culture. Everywhere in this region, you will come across these farm houses that are filled with food produce, cattle stables, homes and much more. And these farm houses are as many as 500 years old.
It is a sight that is very difficult to miss when you travel in this black forest region and if wish to explore all of the types of farm houses, you will either have to go to different parts of the black forest or go to the Schwarzwälder Freilichtmuseum at Vogtsbauernhof where all the different varieties of farm houses of yester years has been relocated here. And these are complete with houses, stables, carriages, water system, mills, carpentry workshops and much more. And while you are here, you can enjoy some of the lovely cherry brandy cake that is special of this region.
