Last week the Wall Street Journal published A Drive Back Through Time in Germany's Black Forest, a wonderfully enticing article that evokes the spirit and beauty of the Black Forest Highlands. SouthWest Germany, the state of Baden-Württemberg, is a place where parents and their children can discover incredible car museums, overnight in car-themed hotels, climb the parapets and ramparts of Burg Hohenzollern as reported in Global Traveler. Children can make their own meals in the medieval kitchen at Castle Waldenburg. Incredibly mesmerizing are the garden island of Mainau and the authentic and surprising outdoor museum of a Bronze Age village of the pylon dwellers, now a UNESCO World Heritage site; while a tour of the life-size replica of the Hindenburg in Friedrichshafen is a step back in time. Recently The New York Times covered the world-class resort of Baden-Baden on the northern most part of the Black Forest and its illustrious spas in a beautifully written article by Stuart Emmerich.
