Baden-Wurttemberg travel guide

Theme Parks · Specialty Museums · Castles
Baden-Wurttemberg is one of Germany's most popular vacation destinations. After all, who wouldn't be entranced by pristine natural habitats, rich culture, a multitude of mineral spas, and plenty of sunshine all year long? Most of this region is covered by the famed Black Forest. This spot's rugged peaks, glittering lakes, and well-maintained trails draw hikers, cyclists, and swimmers from around the globe. Located in the southern section of the country, Baden-Wurttemberg shares many of its traditions with its German-speaking neighbors in France, Switzerland, and Austria. Far more bucolic than the central and northern parts of the country, the area nevertheless offers a wealth of urban pleasures and tourist attractions. It features several large cities, most notably Stuttgart, the home of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. Be sure to include Baden-Baden on your itinerary as well, as its spas have been soothing weary travelers since Roman times.
