The holiday destination Kaiserstuhl-Tuniberg

It is a region of volcanic origin and at the same time it is one of the warmest and sunniest regions of Germany.

The landscape is characterized by mixed woodland, terraced vineyards, vast natural reserves, many fruit trees and a unique fauna and flora. In spring time thousands of colourful blossoms cover and decorate the landscape. In the meadows and embankments of the sunny Kaiserstuhl region rare animals like the European bee-eater and the praying mantis as well as exotic orchids can be found.

In the west the river Rhine forms the natural border to France. Travelling to the south you will reach Switzerland that is only 60 kilometres away. The following municipalities belong to Naturgarten Kaiserstuhl: Bahlingen, Bötzingen, Breisach, Eichstetten, Endingen, Gottenheim, March, Merdingen, Ihringen, Riegel, Sasbach, Teningen-Nimburg and Vogtsburg.

Barrier-free travelling

Thomas Senf, a publisher from Neuenburg, wrote a special guide for handicapped visitors/tourists in the Kaiserstuhl-Tuniberg region. For this guide he was assisted by Christoph Sacherer who is a wheelchair user himself. Mr. Sacherer had collected all relevant information in a very detailed way and to the best of his knowledge. Thanks to the plane bike paths the Kaiserstuhl-Tuniberg region is perfect for wheelchairs, handcycles and minitrucks.

Furthermore, the guidebook gives information about hotels, guesthouses, private rooms, holiday apartments, toilets, parking lots, doctors, wine-growing estates, winegrowers’ cooperatives, cultural events, shops and so on. This paperback represents an invitation for handicapped persons to come to the Kaiserstuhl-Tuniberg region where they can enjoy their barrier-free holiday.
