Stuttgart, a south German city that’s the capital of the Baden-Württemberg state, is not the most obvious place to go for a short break.
Well known for its industry, the city plays host to some well known engineering giants such as Daimler, Porsche and Bosch. Plenty of people go there for work but the city actually has a surprising amount to offer for leisure.

If you’ve ever thought the Côte d’Azur seemed like paradise then you might be surprised by the allure of Lake Constance.
Situated in central Europe, the freshwater lake connects Germany, Austria and Switzerland. While the region is known for having a cooler climate, the moderating effects of the lake means that it can get positively balmy in the summer. This is perhaps why a surprising number of wine regions can be found along its shores.
Bodensee, as the area around the lake is known in Germany, is a region better known historically for its everyday drinking wines but with better winemaking over the years, it’s become a region where you can find real gems.
