It is surrounded by a set of beautiful gardens called „Blühendes Barock“ (flourishing Baroque), representatives of various artistic periods. Accommodation in Ludwigsburg

The journey continues to the Maulbronn Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old Cistercian abbey, a representative work of medieval architecture, is considered the best preserved and most impressive monastic complex in the northern Alps. Continuation to the city of Karlsruhe, near the border with France. It stands out for its baroque-style palace being the heart of the city with 32 streets radiating from it like the nerves of a fan, which is why the nickname of Karlsruhe is „fan city“. Accommodation in Karlsruhe

Continuation to the city of Baden-Baden, the former summer residence of the European high nobility and known worldwide as an elegant hydrothermal station. International metropolis of culture and art, Baden- Baden captivates visitors from all over the world.

Accommodation in the Triberg region in the Black Forest

Today you will visit the fascinating open-air museum „Vogtsbauernhöfe“. There the history and culture of the Black Forest come to life. All farms represent the architecture and economy of their region of origin, thus covering practically the entire Black Forest. Then visit the Dorotheenhütte glass factory in Wolfach. Continue to Triberg, where you can admire the largest cuckoo clock in the world and the famous Triberg waterfalls. Accommodation in the Triberg region in the Black Forest.

towards Lake Constance which offers endless tourist attractions and activities and connects Germany with its neighbors Austria and Switzerland.

Meersburg will captivate you with its New Palace, which stands out impressively over picturesque vineyards and the deep blue of Lake Constance. Accommodation in Meersburg.

Head north to the Hohenzollern Castle that still looks as if time has not passed. Located on top of Mount Hohenzollern, which gives its name to the castle, and at an altitude of 855 meters, it offers a view almost as spectacular as the design of the fort itself. The journey continues to Tübingen, the famous university city, whose carefully restored medieval center is perfectly combined with the daily activity of a young student open to the world. Steep stairs, narrow alleys and pointed roofs outline the silhouette of the historic center. Accommodation in Tübingen.
