Famed for its prosperous production of both asparagus and tobacco, the quaint and quintessential town of Sankt Leon-Rot is a small and serene place in which relaxation and restoration is the primary focus. Its central position makes it an ideal springboard from which to visit the stunning sights of the Baden-Wurttemberg region, which boasts incredible natural landscapes and fascinating flora and fauna. Nearby resides the energetic Hockenheim racetrack and the shimmering surface of Lake St. Leoner See, ideal places to energise and enrich.
The town’s primary natural focus is the luscious St. Leoner See Lake, an expansive and enriching body of water that allures thousands of visitors with legend of its mineral enriched waters. Excellent trails and a picturesque promenade prove perfect routes upon which to circumvent the lake, and designated bathing areas means travellers can either swim energetically or simply soothe aching muscles in the healing waters.

Painting, photographs and antique relics combine to speak eloquently of a peaceful and prosperous past. One part of the museum is dedicated solely to the cultivation of asparagus, a vegetable that features in all of the town’s signature specialties.
