Five reasons I love spending time in Baden-Wurttemberg Germany
Gavin and I went to Europe last year. We spent the majority of the trip in Baden-Wurttemberg Germany. I have been to this region several times. Here are five reasons I love spending time in Baden-Wurttemberg.
Reason #1 — Stuttgart
Stuttgart is the capital city of Baden-Wurttemberg. It is a fun place to visit with lots to see and do. It is an interesting contrast between old and new architecture. I recommend starting your adventure of the region in this city.
Reason #2 — Castles of Baden-Wurttemberg
Baden-Wurttemberg is home to some of the coolest castles in all of Germany. Three castles that are definitely worth exploring include Hohenzollern, Lichtenstein, and Sigmaringen. I have toured all three — they are worth seeing. You can probably explore all of them in one day if you start early. They are not that far from Stuttgart.
Reason #3 — Cars
Germans are crazy about cars. Some of the best ones come from Baden-Wurttemberg. Stuttgart contains two car museums — Porsche and Mercedes Benz. The Porsche museum is great. Don’t be surprised if you see some really nice cars on the roads of this region.
Reason #4 — natural beauty
I have driven all over Baden-Wurttemberg. It is a wonderful region to explore. There are many medieval villages worth visiting. Some are surrounded by vineyards, like Weinheim. The Black Forest is in this region. I highly recommend you spend some time there, although not too much. After all, it is just a forest.
Reason #5 — Food and drink
I eat like a Hohenzollern Prince when I am in Baden-Wurttemberg. They have excellent restaurants, pubs, cafes, and breweries in the cities. This region also makes good wine. If you like hearty German food, then you will love this region.
