Heilbronn

A literary city that's famous for its wines

Located in northern Baden-Wuerttemberg, Heilbronn was a major medieval trading city, so much so that it was immortalized in Von Kleist's play "Katie of Heilbronn" (which has become identified with the city's character). Since the 1800s, however, it has settled into comfortable prosperity due to its thriving wine industry - and local vintages still make Heilbronn famous worldwide.
