After some quality rest time at home with family and friends, it is time to hit the road again. This time, the destination is Germany and it is my first visit there. I have been invited by the German National Tourism Board to explore the Baden-Württemberg region, especially Stuttgart and Schwarzwald (Black Forest). The idea behind this visit to explore some of the highlights, traditions and unique cultures of this region.
During this visit, I will be exploring the city of Stuttgart where I will be seeing the Mercedes-Benz museum, the Museum of viniculture and participating in the Stuttgart Spring festival. And from Stuttgart, I am heading to the Black Forest, a dense forest region that is home to the famous Grimm’s fairy tales. Here at Black Forest, I will be visiting places which follow an ancient way of making glass, the Black Forest Open Air Museum, the Black Forest farmhouses, Triberger waterfalls (one of the highest waterfalls in Germany), see traditional and modern cuckoo clocks and the world’s largest cuckoo clock.
After exploring Stuttgart and the Black Forest region, I will be taking off on my own and explore the fairy tale town of Heidelberg and around. Have not made any specific plans for Heidelberg, so will go with the flow like I usually do.
I am very excited about this trip to South Western Germany and will be providing regular updates on my blog, Facebook, twitter and instagram channels. If this part of the world interests you, you can follow my travels through the channel of your choice.
