If you want to see Baden-Württemberg at its most beautiful, visit the many palaces and gardens run by the state heritage agency, Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten. How about a perfectly-preserved monastery complex, such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Maulbronn? Or there are Heidelberg's world-famous ruins. And there's much, much more.
