The most diverse landscape areas attract visitors to Baden-Württemberg: the Swabian Alb, the Electoral Palatinate with its castles and palaces, the region around Lake Constance with the monastery island of Reichenau, the Odenwald, the Heilbronn region with its vineyards and, of course, the state capital of Stuttgart. Ulm Cathedral and Hohenzollern Castle are just two examples of the many touring destinations in Baden-Württemberg. The "Geniesserland" is also rich in culinary specialities and top restaurants. Black Forest cherry cake, Maultaschen and Spätzle are world famous.
In Bavaria, too, the heart of outdoor sports enthusiasts beats faster. The entire south of the Free State borders on the Alps – where everything is possible, from hiking on high-altitude trails to climbing countless peaks or descending on winding mountain bike trails. The Bavarian Forest on the border with the Czech Republic captivates especially with its rich animal world and the cultural heritage of glass production. In addition to numerous nature reserves, cities such as Munich, Nuremberg and Augsburg also attract visitors with their cultural sights.
