Getting there & around

Stuttgart airport (www.stuttgart-airport.com), Baden-Württemberg’s largest, is a major hub for the discount airline German Wings (www.germanwings.com). Frankfurt airport is about 75km north of Mannheim. Other useful airports include the EuroAirport (www.euroairport.com), which serves Freiburg as well as the Swiss city of Basel and the French city of Mulhouse; Karlsruhe-Baden-Baden airport (Baden Airpark; www.badenairpark.de); Friedrichshafen airport (www.fly-away.de); and Strasbourg airport (www.strasbourg.aeroport.fr) in France, across the Rhine from the Northern Black Forest.

Public transport across the Black Forest can be pretty slow, and long-distance trips (such as from Freiburg to Tübingen or Konstanz) may require several changes.
