The author, a travel journalist, was born and lives in Germany. This guides zeroes in on the Black Forest, Heidelberg, Baden-Baden and the rest of Baden-Wurttemberg - with the kind of inside detail that only a resident can provide. Baden-Wurttemberg is a favored holiday destination. Heidelberg with its majestic castle ruin is a must-see for most foreign visitors to Germany. The Black Forest is the largest forested area in Germany and has many picture-perfect towns and valleys. It is hugely popular with hikers and cyclists. Baden-Baden is the most elegant town in Germany. Hundreds of small towns are barely changed from the Middle Ages. We visit the best ones. The author provides innumerable tips on special discounts available for travelers (some 20 on train and bus travel alone) and tells how to save on gas (cheapest on Mondays, most expensive on Wednesdays), as well as virtually everything else, with inside information on getting the best hotel rooms at the best prices, the best deals and the best food at restaurants. For every area of the country, full information is supplied on how to get around, the best shopping, the foods and the recommended places to eat, where to stay, from charming guesthouses, hostels and campsites, on up to the most luxurious hotels. Includes town and country walks, cycling, fishing, canoeing & kayaking, Rhine cruises, wine tours, concerts and other cultural events - it's all here! As a Pocket Adventure Guide, it shows you how to experience everthing the country offers more intensely and directly than most travelers know how to do - seeing the place close-up through adventures, both cultural and physical, including in-depth encounters with the people. Other guides lack our level of detail, our adventure perspective and our emphasis on direct experience of the country. We provide an insider's knowledge that you won't find in other guides.
