Pairing great food and culture with epic outdoors, charming towns and miles of the dramatic Black Forest, the Baden region of Germany is packed to the rafters with things to see and do – and thanks to direct flights from Stansted to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden airport, getting there has never been easier than now.

Whether you're an adventurer looking to head for the hills on hikes or bike rides, or you just fancy a weekend at the spas and casinos in town, it's all on your doorstep, just a 90-minute flight from Stansted.

To help celebrate this unique part of Germany, the cities of Baden-Baden, Karlsruhe and Rastatt have teamed up with Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport, the Black Forest region and the award-winning Europa-Park Theme Park & Resort to create Fly-Baden – your go-to destination for travel information and holiday inspiration if you're planning a trip to the Baden region of Germany.

And because these vibrant, picturesque surrounds are best seen to be believed, we've teamed up with Fly-Baden to give away a four-day trip to the Fly-Baden region this July, taking you directly to the Black Forest, and giving you the chance to experience the majesty of this region in southwestern Germany.

Sound good? We thought so. Here’s what to expect if you win...

The itinerary

Day 1

Fly directly from London Stansted to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport in the afternoon. You’ll spend the evening at the comfortable, high-quality and homely Hotel Merkur in Baden-Baden, taking in dinner and a visit to the casino – one of the most famous in Europe.

Day 2

In the morning, you’ll head to the Black Forest and take an off-road tour at the much-loved Unimog Museum. Then, it’s on to Karlsruhe, where you’ll have time to discover the vibrant city flair and explore ZKM – the number one media art museum in Europe – before grabbing some amazing food and spending the night at the Hotel Kaiserhof.

Day 3

Head to Europa-Park, Germany’s biggest theme park, which has been voted the World’s best Theme Park a whopping five times in a row. You’ll stay in the newest of the park’s six on-site hotels, Hotel Krønasår, which opened earlier this spring.

Day 4

After a morning at the theme park, you’ll leave for the airport to fly back to Stansted from Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport.
