Villingen is really wonderful!

Villingen-Schwenningen is one of those mergers the Germans do. For example, I play tennis in Ramstein village sometimes. But it's not called Ramstein, it's Ramstein-Miesenbach.

So, as part of the Baden-W├╝rttemberg territorial reform of 1972, Villingen and Schwenningen were merged with a number of surrounding villages to form the city of Villingen-Schwenningen. Nevertheless, the two halves of the city are separated by a plateau and remain distinct.

And I found Villingen nicer than Schwenningen on a recent weekend visit through the black forest region.


Villingen's old city walls remain, and gates like the one in this photo allow you entry into the old part of the city.
