But Germany’s sunniest region is no museum: everyone is welcome to join in the festivals and traditions that date back centuries and are still part of everyday life in cities, towns and villages. Dance in the street; bake a Black Forest gateau; see how the world’s best-loved teddy bear is made; taste award-winning local wines. You can even drive your car round a world-famous motor racing circuit!
