"Hi i am planning to travel to Gengebach around 10 September i have some question that may be really helpful 1- what is the condition of climate , should i bring a jacket? 2- I would love to rent a room in a farmhouse, but my concern is how to move around to visit the town at night, is their available transportation in such villages area, or it is better to rent a hotel in the town? actually i am very interested to get the full taste of the black forest in details 3- what is the distance to the Europe Park, is there a bus or train to get there? thanks a lot for who ever will help me !! Haya" (posted 08/11/2014)

Hi Haya, in September, it is often still quite warm, but are also already cooler days and especially at night it can be cool. Sure, you can rent an apartment further out and take a taxi back at night. It is simply a question of cost. Gengenbach at night also is not so exciting ........... It is approximately 45 km to the Europa Park, and it is easily accessible by public transport. In terms of food, the Black Forest is, of course, an experience, and you will find many bars, restaurants, markets, and farm shops.

Dear Haya, Let me answer your questions .... I am the owner of apartment # 5263 in 77933 Lahr - Sulz in the Black Forest .... our apartment is directly on the hill with view over the village and is close to a bigger city ​​which means you can take a bus to the next smaller old traditional Black Forest city of Lahr - only 4 km. You could also walk there. The full taste of the Black Forest you could get with us too ... our garden has a direct access to the Black Forest, just walk on, we are on the last lane of houses before the forest ... We offer a pick up service ..... Our apartment in Lahr-Sulz is 22 km away from Gengenbach, and we are only 18 km away from the Europa Park ... Your questions : first the climate is quite summer and it's usually still hot, around 28 degrees, but sometimes if we have some rain, it can cool down to about 16 degrees, so bring a light jacket too .. 2 from the farm houses / villages, there are no transportation possibilities by bus, especially not at evening / night, in the day yes, maybe one bus every 2 hours .... 3 distance to the Europe park is 40 km, there are buses, but it is difficult by bus , since you have to change the bus a few times .... Bye, Andy
