"Weingarten in Baden" Weingarten by Kathrin_E

Weingarten Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 171 photos

"Weingarten" translates to "vineyard" - no surprise that there are more locations in the wine regions with the same name. This page is about Weingarten in Baden. There is another Weingarten in Baden-Württemberg, the one in Upper Swabia just North of Lake of Constance, and there are some misplaced entries in this VT travel guide, I'm afraid.

Weingarten is hardly more than a village, but it has a pretty centre with the two sister churches and a handful of old houses along the open stream. The village is located north of Karlsruhe at the foot of the Kraichgau hills.

The name is programme, as is the grape in the village's crest. Weingarten is a wine village. The hillsides are planted with vines. The local vintners' association (Winzergenossenschaft) is known for good dry whites.

This photo gives an overview of the landscape. The village is located where the plain meets the hills, at the exit of the valley of Walzbach, a small stream that runs through the centre of the village. A walk through the vineyards offers a wide view of the plain.

    Nice updates here. You did quite a lot of wildlife watching, didn't you?

    Let's hope they are good sisters. At least the Protestants help with the making of the flower carpets on Corpus Christi.
