Baden-Wuerttemberg – The Federal States Baden-Wuerttemberg, the third largest federal state, is located in the southwest of Germany. Its landscape structure is highly diverse and offers such different nature areas as the Odenwald, the Spessart, the Upper Rhine Plain, the Black Forest and the Swabian Jura. Baden-Wuerttemberg, formerly divided into Baden and Wuerttemberg, has a long and turbulent history, which can be traced far back into the past. The federal state itself is not very old, it is the youngest federal state in Germany. Baden-Wuerttemberg counts among the economically strongest and most competitive regions of Europe. It is the exporting country number one among the federal states and is considered the most innovative region of the EU as far as high technology, research and development are concerned. Of particular interest for tourism are Baden-Wuerttemberg traditions, among them the typical Black Forest houses and the costumes with their ”Bollenhut“ hats. Together with the extensive additional material the DVD is ideally suited for use in the classroom.
