Black Forest Music School Tours

With its beautiful lakes and stunning panoramic views, the Black Forest offers many opportunities for music groups. With NST, we’ll combine performances and visits in France and Germany for a memorable two-country concert tour.

Black Forest lies in the south west corner of Germany, with the French and Swiss borders close by, making this a popular destination for those wanting to country-hop too. This is a stunning region to explore. Lush forests, clear deep lakes and rolling hills are iconic of the area, and many performance venues are set in truly idyllic locations, making this a memorable tour option for your group.

A much underrated destination! There’s a host of interesting venues on offer which usually attract great audiences. Groups can perform against a picturesque, traditional German backdrop, cross the border to give a concert in France or perform at Europapark and receive free entry to the park (a great option for saving money on excursions).
