Baden
Baden is the southernmost and third largest of Germany’s wine regions. Including the Upper Rhine, it extends from Basel, Switzerland, to Mannheim, following the Rhine on its southern half. Due to its extensive coverage of land, the wines produced here are very diverse. Though white-wine production outnumbers red, the area is still acknowledged for its Spätburgunder. Known as “Burgundy Paradise,” Baden has a unique clime that allows for top-notch grape growing. It is the warmest and sunniest area in Germany, and with the surrounding mountains of the Black Forest, receives plenty of rain—an ideal combo for producing sturdy, full-bodied wines.

A popular pastime in these parts is walking, which allow visitors to book multi-day tours to hike wine trails through sprawling forest. Traipse the foothills between vineyards, stopping to sip at each one. And for sleeping, cozy up in a quaint village where toasting the day’s accomplishments over a plate of warm wiener schnitzel is a nighttime ritual.
