We are the south. Hike through the Black Forest and experience Lake Constance, relax in Baden-Baden and enjoy culture in Heidelberg, taste wine in the Kaiserstuhl or explore the Danube Valley by bike: There is more than one reason to travel to the south of Germany. To the country with the most gastronomic stars - and the most hours of sunshine.
"Experience a journey through time" is the invitation of the Burgenstrasse, which leads from Mannheim to Bayreuth and is one of the oldest holiday routes in Germany. Around 60 castles and palaces can be admired along the 780 kilometer route. In addition, there is a wealth of possibilities for an individual and relaxed stroll through the past, whether by car, mobile home, bicycle or vintage car.
"This is where Germany begins to become Italy," Emperor Josef II is said to have said about Bergstrasse. On the journey to his coronation in Frankfurt, his path led him in daily stages along this historic trade and military route that connects Darmstadt with Heidelberg. It is considered the spring garden of Germany and is part of the UNESCO Geopark Bergstrasse-Odenwald. Along the flower path and in the parks between Darmstadt and Heidelberg you feel like you are in paradise. The vineyards of the Hessian and Baden Bergstrasse meet here.
