Spirit Hopping to Baden-Baden

This package really lets you experience German culture: Spend a day in Baden-Baden and visit a thermal bath. Then head out into the countryside for an experience most tourists miss during their visit: a visit to some of the local farmhouses where the farmer provides you with his own distilled liquor.
