Germany has a wealth of natural and untouched landscapes. Its diverse and unique flora & fauna create an unforgettable experience for the visitors.
Use it or lose it’ is the motto of the Black Forest’s nature parks. With a total area of 7450 sq km, they are the two largest nature reserves in Germany, and there are so many different ways to discover the scenery and landscape.
They border the fertile Rhine valley to the west, and hilly meadows and farmland to the east. In between there are swathes of woodland, Germany’s highest hills (up to 1493m), medieval towns and cultural centres such as Baden-Baden and Freiburg. Visitors can tour these regions that spans 11100 square kilometres for free by bus or train, using the KONUS card available at nearly 140 holiday destinations.Plan my Germany Vacation Now

Also on Lake Constance is the Monastic Island of Reichenau, which documents the religious and cultural role played by the large Benedictine abbey in the Middle Ages and has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 2000.
