You will be surrounded by many culturally and historically relevant destinations close enough for successful day trips. You can visit Castle Hohenzollern, the medieval towns of Tübingen and Hechingen are close by. Haigerloch is a little picturesque town, complete with castle and an "atomic cavern", a museum of nuclear technology. Other worthwhile day trips comprise a trip to Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Württemberg, easily reached on the A81. The same Autobahn brings you to the beautiful and historically important Lake of Constance or to the spring of the second longest river in Europe, the Danube. The vast and beautiful region of Black Forest is of course at your front door just waiting for your explorations.
