Baden-Württemberg surroundings

Restaurant Löwen is located in Oberopfingen, part of the district of Baden-Württemberg in Southern Germany. Interesting sights in the area include the medieval town of Tübingen, as well as Freiburg with the renowned "Bächle", the watercourses meandering around the alleys of the old city. The old border and university town of Constance on the southern shore are surrounded by the beautiful island of Reichenau, and “Flower Island” Mainau. Also worth visiting is the university town of Heidelberg, with its many baroque red sandstone houses.
