05 Aug Heilbronn region
Wander through vineyards and bathe in the spa waters
The Swabian Tuscany is a top-class recreational area. Cycling along the Köcher, Jagst and Neckar rivers, cultural cycling routes along literary cycling paths, and castle or nature park routes up to the wooded mountain range of the nature parks – this is the best way to experience the versatility of the Heilbronn region. Picturesque walks lead you through scenic wine landscapes, terraced vineyards, past orchards and through idyllic forests and dreamy river valleys. Rural taverns invite you to enjoy wines from the Württemberg region where they grow. Wine culture, conviviality and the delightful countryside exude Tuscan flair. Anyone looking for relaxation after a long hike or bike tour should relax in the Thermen- und Badewelt spa in Sinsheim and be pampered by the beneficial wellness offers that are available.
