There’s no shortage of our kind of places to stay in Baden-Wurttemberg. The state contains the lion’s share of Germany’s best scenery. Bounded by Heidelberg and Mannheim in the north and Weil and Konstanz in the south, it is a land of thatched houses and dense forests – here is found the famous Schwarzwald or Black Forest, a Mecca for hikers.
In the west of the state is the industrial centre of Stuttgart – Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz were born nearby, and it is a place of pilgrimage for motor enthusiasts. Baden-Wurttemberg was a kingdom until the end of the First World War.
As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Baden-Wurttemberg offers an interesting range: guesthouses, hotels, restaurants with rooms. Whichever, they have the special quality of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
