Germany's 16 states: Baden-Württemberg

This state in south-western Germany is known worldwide, especially for the Black Forest. In fact, the "Ländle," or "little land," as the locals affectionately call it, has much more to offer: culture in the state capital Stuttgart, romanticism in Heidelberg and, with more than 70 Michelin-starred restaurants, one of Germany's finest cuisine.

Black Forest: A magnet for tourists

No other region in Baden-Württemberg attracts more tourists: the Black Forest stretches from Lake Titisee to the Feldberg, the state's highest mountain. The distinctive Bollenhut hats, with their wide brims and pompoms, and cuckoo clocks are well-known symbols associated with it. Nicole Frölich, who hosts our TV travel show, Check-in, says the snow-covered countryside in winter is especially appealing.
