☀ Autumn in SouthWest Germany

Go for walks in our historic and towns and cities. Take day trips to the country, where millions of trees are changing colour. Stop for tastings in vineyards. Explore impressive castles, ancient monasteries and atmospheric palaces straight out of Game of Thrones. Go behind the scenes to be a princess for a day; hear ghostly tales; find out about the monk, who invented a national dish – and then order it in a medieval restaurant!

Whatever you choose, you will enjoy traditional hospitality, matched by the cleanest and safest accommodation in Europe. We look forward to seeing you!

The Sunny Side of Germany ☀

Welcome to sunny SouthWest Germany, a very special vacation destination. Start with historic cities. Heidelberg is one of Europe's most romantic, with its castle, river and university. Stuttgart, the region's capital, boasts art museums, opera and two of the world's best car museums. After all, this is where the automobile was patented almost 135 years ago! 

For elegance and relaxation, nowhere surpasses Baden-Baden, with its natural mineral spas and stylish casino. 

And SouthWest Germany is the country's best region for gourmets and wine lovers, with Michelin-starred restaurants as well as informal taverns – all serving award-winning local wines

The unspoiled countryside is perfect for hiking and biking, from the Black Forest to Lake Constance; while Europa-Park, one of the world's top theme parks, offers family fun. All these and much, much more are right here on our website.

Travelling 2022

Time Travel in SouthWest Germany

In SouthWest Germany, we just love to create and invent things. And in 2022, we are celebrating that ingenuity. 
All across our region, villages, towns and cities will be focusing on what is made in SouthWest Germany. We look back on 40,000 years, to the making of the Lion Man, the world’s oldest artwork, which was discovered in one of our numerous prehistoric caves.
