The southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg just launched an overhauled tourism Web site. We’re pleased.

Geography-obsessed smartypants will already know that several significant tourist destinations and major cities are within the boundaries of the state. These include Baden-Baden, Freiburg, Friedrichshafen (so pretty—see above), Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, and Ulm.

We were especially happy to see the site’s wine and beer page, detailing the region’s standouts on both counts. And of course, because we can’t pass up a good pastry, the inclusion of this recipe also made us happy. Aside from listing fabulous things that we can put inside our mouths, the site does a great job of providing pithy introductions to the state’s big cities, charming towns, recommended tourist routes, bike trails, and hiking routes.

Several low-cost carriers fly in and out of Baden-Württemberg. Ryanair, for example, flies to Karlsruhe-Baden and Friedrichshafen.
