Ravensburg District is the second largest district in Baden-Württemberg and is located in the south-east of the state.
It is a place characterized by water in all its forms. At the time of the last ice age a vast glacier cut chunks out of the land that have since filled with water leading to the romantic landscapes of today.

Aulendorf, for example, has become a famous spa town, as has Bad Wurzach where one can choose between bathing in mineral-rich water or taking a soothing mud bath. Indeed, Bad Wurzach also boasts the largest area of moorland in Europe where exotic wildlife flourishes away from the towns and cities.
Peat cutting still takes place here and one can take a ride through the moors on the lovely little narrow gauge railways originally built to carry peat to the town center.
Isny im Allgäu still retains part of the defensive moat that ran around the whole town and is well worth a look.
Bad Waldsee, which sits between two lakes, provides activities each year based around the water. From rowing competitions to fireworks over the lake there are plenty of ways to enjoy this land of water.
