    Hohentwieler hike: the largest fortress in Germany

    Our journey through Baden-Württemberg continues! After a two night stay in the Remstal, we head onwards to the western Bodensee region for the last few days of my visit to this part of Germany.

The lake is gigantic: it provides more than four million families with drinking water every day. We only stay here for a day and a half but still get see a lot.

    Hohe Acht: hiking to the highest peak in the Eifel mountains

    Highest peaks always appeal to my imagination. So while I was passing through the Eifel recently, I decided to make a stop at the Hohe Acht, the highest “mountain” in the Eifel.
