From major tourist drawcards to hidden gems slightly off the beaten path, Baden-Wuerttemberg is brimming with things to do and see. Bad Urach, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the east, and Suessen, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south of Blaubeuren are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
Approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northwest of Blaubeuren is Stuttgart, a regional city where you'll find Leuze Mineral Baths, Stuttgart National Theater and Carl Zeiss Planetarium. Wurttemberg Mausoleum, Loewentor Museum and Landtag are just a handful of the many other interesting attractions that await.
Enjoy moments of serenity at Baden-Wuerttemberg's cathedrals. If you're keen on soaking up some of the local culture, make a beeline for Baden-Wuerttemberg's history museums, theaters and art museums.
For those who love the water, this is a great place for you. Canoeing is a common pastime and another great activity is surfing. Follow your passions with one of the cycling tours. There are plenty to choose from in the Baden-Wuerttemberg area.
A great way to reveal the true soul of a place is by visiting the bars, cafés and restaurants in the region. Try some dishes and connect with the people who live in the area. Potatoes as well as beef are used as part of dishes in this area. Of course, no journey through Germany would be complete without tasting schupfnudel (potato and flour pasta, usually with sauerkraut) and gaisburger marsch (meat potato and vegetable stew). Schwarzwälder kirschtorte (Black Forest cake) is the perfect way to round out your Baden-Wuerttemberg meal. Why don't you splash out and order a wine to have with your dinner? Baden Spätburgunder and Württemberg Trollinger are some safe bets.
When the time comes to leave Blaubeuren, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your euros, and bid Tschüss (farewell) to this wonderful spot.
