    Stuttgart Things to Do

    Park Wilhelma, Home to botanical gardens and the city’s renowned zoo. Here you can walk along the banks of the Neckar River. I didn't actually have time to go to the zoo or the gardens. I would have liked knowing about it before arriving in Stuttgart, so I tell you about it here.

    Mannheim Things to Do

    The wonderfully designed park behind the water tower is a great place to meet, hang out, watch people and cool your feet in the fountain. Bruno Schmitz designed the park with its two opposing archways and a big fountain in the middle.

    Baden-Baden Things to Do

    Here are our (me and my sister) experiences of saunas in Caracalla: Crystal sauna, 90 C: there were "some kind of crystal" in the sauna and some essential oils in the air. The sauna was quite hot and dry (even to us who has used to sauna a lot). Vapour sauna, 85 C: essential oils were too much for me in this sauna. Aroma sauna, 85 C: there were...

  • Imperia Statue

    Konstanz Things to Do

    You simply can't go to Konstanz without seeing Imperia, the city's most famous statue. Its position at the tip of a jetty in the harbour makes it immediately visible when coming from the lake, while it's also the logical port of call when you head towards the harbour from the city. Imperia was built by Peter Lenk in 1993, a local sculptor who...

    The Ulmer Muenster began life in the 15th century as a Catholic church but is today Lutheran. As I mentioned in my Intro, the steeple is believed to be the tallest in the entire world.

  • The Old Castle of Meersburg

    Meersburg Things to Do

    There are two Castles in Meersburg, the old and the new. I decided I would visit the Old Castle first, well known as the landmark of Meersburg as it can practically be seen from everywhere in town, quite handy for not getting lost! This Castle is very old, as it dates back to 7th century to the Merovingian King Dagobert I. Inside is an extensive...

Points de vue at its ends are the Temple of Mercury in the south and the...

  • Catholic Church

    Eppingen Things to Do

    This extraordinary medieval fresco inside the church is a bit hidden and easily overlooked. Seeing such 'creatures from the dark side' within a church is at least remarkable. It shows a milk witch and the devil. The witch is milking a fountain (which is supposed to give water, not milk, and collecting the milk in a bucket. The devil brings a pot,...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Heidelberg Things to Do

    a tour of Heidelberg is not complete without a walking tour of the old town of Heidelberg as the Old Town has many historical Landmarks and buidlings of which a bus tour could not do as most streets in the old town are small and narrow (and are also cobblestone) and could not accommodate the bug tour buses so most tours have walking tours around...

    Freiburg im Breisgau Things to Do

    This fascinating building used to be the trading and customs center of Freiburg. Nowadays, it serves as a large meeting hall for business conventions.

Most of the furniture is, however, not the original furniture of this palace but pieces bought from art trade in recent years. So this is not what the rooms...

  • Harbour - Waterfront - Beach

    Konstanz Things to Do

    With the sea about 500km away from Konstanz, the best option to go outdoor swimming is of course Lake Constance, or Bodensee as the three countries bordering it call it. There are places aplenty, but my absolute favourites so far are two bathing sites in Konstanz and Tägerwilen. Strandbad Horn (also called Hörnle sometimes): The biggest bathing...

    Freiburg is just near the border with France. It's the biggest and most important of all the towns in the Blackforest that I know.

  • Meersburg Promenade

    Meersburg Things to Do

    When I was at the port, I noticed a brightly painted building which was named the Gredhaus.

The building was built as a place for storing grain...

  • Porsche

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Stuttgart Things to Do

    When I first came to this museum twelve years ago it was little more than a handful of Porsche cars crammed into a former workshop behind the showroom. It was a major disappointment. Not any more. Today there is a stunning purpose built museum featuring nearly a hundred cars from all eras of the Porsche marque. The place is huge, with many...

    Mannheim Things to Do

    In early 19th century the bike was invented in Mannheim by Karl Drais. People were laughing about him, ridiculing his idea. (They should have a look at the square in front of the university library now. On some days you can't see the cobble stones because of the many bikes.) Later in this century the first train went on its way from Mannheim to...
