The southwest German state of Baden-Württemberg was a creation of the post-World War II world, when three states agreed to merge shortly after the creation of West Germany.  The state is home to a number of medium-sized cities, but its southern reaches are quite rural.  This area, which features beautiful gently rolling hills dotted with small towns, is the subject of this beautiful drone video by Maciej Ziomber.  It was filmed in the area around Obernheim, a town in the Zollernalbkreis District.

FPV pilots are continually coming up with creative new uses for their mini-quads.  One of them is to use their FPV drones to create aerial "city tours" that have a much different look and feel compared to "traditional" drone videos.  Here is an excellent example by AirVuz contributor MiLiKo, who brings us an FPV tour of a famous street called Schloßstrasse in Koblenz, Germany.  The street is the main shopping district in the city, which is located at the junction of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Talented content creator and pilot seb-depp brings us this excellent aerial view of a "fairy-tale" castle in Western Germany.  It's called Sababurg, and it's located in an upland area in the state of Hesse, near the geographic center of the country.   Originally constructed in the first part of the 14th century, it was reconstructed as a hunting lodge about 150 years later.  The castle was extensively restored beginning in the mid-20th century; it's now the site of a luxury hotel and is a popular wedding venue.  

Lichtenstein and Hohenzellorn Castles


Castles in Baden-Württemberg


Contributor and pilot Stefan Beumer used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this aerial view of two of Europe's most famous Gothic Revival castles, both of which are located in southwestern Germany.  The first, Lichtenstein Castle, was completed in 1842 on the site of an 11th-century castle.  The second, Hohenzollern Castle, also built on the site of an earlier structure, was completed in 1867.  It was the ancestral seat of the Hohenzollern family, which ruled Prussia and then all of Germany until 1918.
