Tour the Mythic Forests and Castles of Baden-Württemberg
Bordering France, Switzerland, and Austria, the Baden-Württemberg region is one of Germany’s hottest tourist destinations.
In addition to its many historic cities, Baden-Württemberg is home to the famous Black Forest area. Renting a holiday home in Baden-Württemberg is a great way to explore all the natural and cultural wonders this region has to offer.
As mentioned above, one of the most popular tourist-friendly areas Baden-Württemberg is the Black Forest in the region’s southwestern corner. The hilly terrain and enchanting scenery in the Black Forest are ideal for families who love hiking or biking. There are also a few ski resorts in the Black Forest guests could take advantage of during the wintertime.
Besides outdoor activities, the Black Forest is well known for its many fabulous spa towns. Perhaps the most popular of these spa towns is Baden-Baden, which was founded around therapeutic hot springs. After enjoying Baden-Baden’s healing springs, be sure to visit some of the town’s many attractions including the Fabergé Musem, the Johannes Brahms House, and the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund.
Another significant city in the Black Forest is Freiburg im Breisgau near the Dreisam River. The main reason Freiburg im Breisgau attracts so many tourists every year has to do with its warmer weather - at least by German standards. Besides enjoying the city’s sunny weather, visitors love touring the wonderful architecture in and around Freiburg’s old university district.
The most famous building in the city is the Freiburg Minster, which is one of the oldest cathedrals in Europe. Freiburg im Breisgau also has a state-of-the-art observation tower called the Schloßbergturm that offers fabulous panoramic views of the city.
Outside of the Black Forest, the most visited city in Baden-Württemberg is Heidelberg. Situated on the Neckar River, Heidelberg is one of Europe’s oldest and best-preserved university towns. Luckily, this city wasn’t damaged during WWII, so tourists can enjoy the city’s authentic Baroque architecture.
The must-see attraction in Heidelberg, of course, is the city’s towering 16th century castle. Other inspiring Heidelberg sites include the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Königstuhl hill, and the Old Bridge.
Another important city in Baden-Württemberg is the region’s capital of Stuttgart. This city is sometimes called the “Green Capital” because of its many parks, vineyards, and forest areas. One of the top sites in Stuttgart is the Versailles-inspired “New Palace,” which was completed in 1807.
Car enthusiasts visiting Stuttgart can’t pass up a visit to the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche museums. Other popular attractions in Stuttgart include the Wilhelma zoo, Killesberg Park, and the massive City Library.
If Stuttgart’s New Palace wasn’t enough for you, then take a trip to the city of Karlsruhe along the Rhine. This Baden-Württemberg city is also well-known for its major castle, which was first completed in the 18th century. Although badly damaged during WWII, the Karlsruhe Palace is now fully restored and has fine museum and garden areas.
