Suggested excursions

Countryside as unusual and diverse as this can't be fully appreciated from inside a car. The Forsthof wine-growing estate is one of many in this first-class wine-producing region. Ludwigsburg Palace is the destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Bärenhöhle ("Bear Caves") at Sonnenbühl are one of the region's biggest attractions.
Weingut Forsthof
The Weingut Forsthof is picturesquely set amid meadows, forests and vineyards on a hill above in the Bottwartal valley between Steinheim and Lichtenberg hill. Aided by the particularly mild climate and the vintner's philosophy of growing grapes in harmony with nature, this eight-hectare vineyard produces exquisite wines of excellent quality. The many treasures waiting to be discovered make it well worth taking a detour to this wine paradise. There are wines for every occasion and to suit all tastes. The vineyard has a cosy tavern where visitors can toast one another with the cellar's treasures, and a tasting pavilion where wine lovers can sample the fine wines, sekt, liqueur and brandies before they buy.
Ludwigsburg Palace
Ludwigsburg Palace has 452 rooms in 18 buildings and is one of the largest and most magnificent baroque palaces in Europe. It was built for Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Württemberg between 1704 and 1733, and has been named the "Swabian Versailles". The palace is set in 30 hectares of parkland. The "Blooming Baroque" gardens are a permanent garden show presenting different eras of horticultural design, and their special exhibitions and flower shows are unique. Children will love exploring the secrets of the fairytale garden.
Bärenhöhle and Nebelhöhle caves
The Bärenhöhle caves are close to the Traumland theme park. The first part of the 271m long cave system, known as Karlshöhle, was discovered in 1834. The entrance to the Bärenhöhle ("Bear Cave") was discovered by cave guide Karl Bez in 1949, and the cave was found to contain thirty skeletons of bears up to 20,000 years old. The Bärenhöhle caves form a fairy kingdom with fantastic sinter and dripstone formations. A few kilometres away are the spectacular Nebelhöhle caves. The main section of the 380m long cave system with its amazing stalactites and stalagmites lay undiscovered until 1920.
