Cheap flights to Baden-Württemberg

When it comes to Germany, the usual destinations involve Berlin, the capital, or Dusseldorf, the financial centre. Tourists also converge in Frankfurt, as it is a transportation hub for international travel. This makes it important to turn one's attention to the sides of the country, specifically to Southwest Germany. One will find here the region of Baden-Württemberg, the third largest state in terms of size and population. 

 

Baden-Wurttemberg's location makes it share borders with France and Switzerland. It is also surrounded by the regions of Rhineland Palatinate, Hessen, and Bavaria. When going here, tourists will see the major cities beside or near the banks of Neckar River. The rural area is also close to the Rhine that forms the western border, as well as some parts of the southern border. Tourists going here will find the Black Forest rising east of the Rhine Valley, with the high plateau of the Swabian Alb between an important European watershed. This presents a wide range of activities to enjoy such as hiking and boating. 

 

What to see & do

When it comes to cultural legacy, much can be learned in Baden-Württemberg, with its four World Heritage sites. The first one declared by UNESCO is the Maulbronn Monastery Complex, considered to be the most complete monastic structure due to its strong foundation and structure which were built between the 12th and 16th centuries. Its transitional Gothic design also became an influence for the spread of Gothic architecture across other countries in Europe.

 

There is also the Limes Museum, which is located in a site where the largest Roman fort north of the Alps can be found. The museum features the history of the military and civilian life in the old Roman settlement, from weapons such as lances and swords, heavy chain mail armour, and Roman sandals. Manufactured tools and pottery as well as gold and silver jewellery can also be found here.

 

Palaces and gardens also abound in the region where travellers can stroll and look at the ancient but still amazing fixtures. The Palace of Schloss Favorite Rastatt is truly beautiful, especially when one looks at the scagliola floors, walls with faience tiles, and ceilings with plasterwork and frescoes. Tapestries finely woven can also be seen here with the furniture, which makes the interiors fascinating to behold. 

 

Gardens are also abundant in Baden-Württemberg. Schwetzingen Palace makes a sight with its well-tended elegant lawns and flowerbeds. The main attraction here, however, is its sculptures, which number more than a hundred. Those who want to see defensive castles can venture to the ruins of Hohentwiel, the largest in

Germany. Travellers going here will find that the castle has a magnificent view to the Lake Constance and the snowy peaks of Alps. 

 

Travellers looking for more active pursuits can go on hiking and walking trips. One can choose from a variety of areas to explore from the peaceful Black Forest to the lush surroundings of the Swabian Mountains. One can also venture to the river valleys in Hohenlohe, or go along the shores of the Lake Constance.
