From Munich to the Black Forest, from Lake Constance to the Neckar River, Southern Germany is rich with historical relevance, natural wonders and thrills for any traveler.
The valley surrounding the Neckar River as it twists toward the Rhine is picturesque and breathtaking. One of the major highlights of the area is Heidelberg, a red sandstone castle with baroque influences. The river loosely follows Castle Road, an east-west causeway across Baden-Wurttemberg with over 70 castles and palaces along the way. The ruins of the region have a grandeur that's emblematic of the old world and all its trappings.
The Black Forest is known the world over for its therapeutic properties, and its natural springs have drawn travelers to Baden-Baden for centuries. Hot or cold, in steam or its liquid form, visitors have partaken of the waters from the area since the Roman era. Also enjoy Freiburg, one of the primary towns of the region and an old university town where stands a Gothic Cathedral whose history (it was built before the 15th century) is matched only by its tower, which reaches almost 400 feet into the air; the cathedral's architecture has drawn international attention for its striking style. The area also has excellent cuisine - fresh fish and game are a staple - and distinctive wines.
Enjoy a property in Bavaria, a campsite in the Black Forest, or any other of the comfortable and modern lodgings in the portfolio when the day's travels in Southern Germany come to an end.
