Long day (180km), via St Wendels Basilika, Rose Garden of Zweibrücken, Zitadelle of Bitsch and late on the day the Canal de la Marne au Rhine. Near the finish line: European Parliament. Stay in a camp site in Kehl that I have been in the past 4 times.
Same tyre back in 2014 (Scotland) - a Conti Tour, and always ridden with high pressure, but the side wall got weak close to the rim and I made it to a bikeshop in Lahr at 8am to get a new tyre. Freiburg for lunchtime, visiting 2 MPIs there and after some Skyr from ALDI up the Schauinsland road with views ins Land and the goal for next morning: Feldberg.
Baden-Württemberg, situated in Southwest Germany, is a state that shares its eastern border with the Rhine River and forms the southern part of Germany's western boundary with France. It is the third-largest German state in terms of both land area and population. As of 2019, it has a population of over 11.07 million people and covers an area of approximately 35,752 square kilometers. It is surpassed in size by Bavaria and Lower Saxony and in population by North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria. Baden-Württemberg operates as a partially autonomous parliamentary republic within the federal structure of Germany. The capital city of the state is Stuttgart, which is the largest city in Baden-Württemberg. Other significant cities include Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Freiburg im Breisgau, Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Pforzheim, Reutlingen, Tübingen, and Ulm. Previously, the region that now constitutes Baden-Württemberg was divided into the historical territories of Baden, Prussian Hohenzollern, and Württemberg. In April 1952, these three regions were merged to form the state of Baden-Württemberg as part of West Germany. The Allied powers had initially created these separate states after World War II based on their respective occupation zones. Baden-Württemberg is renowned for its robust economy, encompassing various industries such as automobile manufacturing, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and the service sector, among others. It boasts the third-highest gross regional product (GRP) in Germany. Many prominent German companies, including Mercedes-Benz Group, Schwarz Group, Porsche, Bosch, and SAP, have their headquarters in Baden-Württemberg. The term "Ländle," derived from the local Swabian, Alemannic, and Franconian dialects, is sometimes used as a nickname or synonym for Baden-Württemberg.
At 1,493 metres, the Feldberg is the highest mountain in Baden-Württemberg.
Early breakfast at 6.40 in Todtnau after 400 vertical meters down. Climbing up Feldberg, ständig tall at nearly 1500m. Passing through tourist magnets in Hochschwarzwald. Next sight: source of the Danube in Donaueschingen and source of the Aach a bit later. Camping in Wahlwies not to far from Lake Constance. A camp site I stayed back in 2011 on my Deutschlandtour 2011 - einmal aussen rum... in 15 Tagen.
