Class trip to Heilbronn

When heading North from Stuttgart, you'll soon arrive in Heilbronn. It provides a great junction of travel opportunities. For nearly every field of interest, Heilbronn serves as a starting point.

For a taste of the Middle Ages you may want to turn to Rothenburg or Heidelberg. That way, with Heilbronn as your base of operation, you can design an activity programme to meet your interests perfectly.
