With over 30 areas, and over 100 crags, this state is third largest in population and area, though may be second to Bavaria for amount of available climbing.

The ancient hot spring spas of Baden-Baden are a major tourist attraction in Baden-Württemberg, as well as Lake Konstanz.

You'll need a long runner to be able to set up a top rope from the anchor site at the top of the wall. View is rediculously good and you are storming a damn castle ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
