In contrast to books, newspapers are a quick way to get to grips with issues for the first time and to get initial information on a specific topic. You can also get a good overview of what's going on in the world by reading the newspaper.
Even if the World Wide Web is slowly but surely pushing back printed products, newspapers are not becoming obsolete, they are just changing the medium and adapting to it.
However, nothing changes in the sense and purpose of newspapers, mainly because they continue to adhere to professional journalism and thus ensure a minimum quality of information and also shared opinions.
Our freedom of expression and freedom of the press as well as access to press products from all over the world also ensure that there are suitable offers for every taste and intellect - so we are really spoiled for choice.
I advise against limiting yourself to just one newspaper, which is usually the local one. Our diversity of opinion is far too great to be represented in a single newspaper. Also, it is not possible for a newspaper to cover the entire spectrum of information, so that reading a single newspaper does not take advantage of the real advantage of newspapers.
It has always been a question of money, how much different information and opinions you can get to form your own opinion.
This has long since improved somewhat thanks to the Internet and the World Wide Web, even if “good” information and opinions still have their price there – but for a first overview, the use of the Internet has definitely developed into an advantage.
However, it is still the libraries that enable interested readers to access a variety of press at low cost, the respective newspaper archives, which are now very easily accessible and enable extensive research, and newspaper sharing, which is by no means out of fashion.
Below you will find the newspapers that I myself like to pick up again and again or read on the World Wide Web. If you come across research errors in these newspapers or find journalists' opinions that cannot be reconciled with yours at all, I strongly advise against making tales of an "opinion, state or even lying press", because it It would be dreadful and fatal for our societies as a whole if you kept finding only your own opinions and convictions in the newspapers.

As soon as European or even Heilbronn topics can be found here, I assume that they will also move the world.

I hope that my suggestions have aroused your interest. I would be delighted if I could make one of the listed newspapers palatable to you. The really nice thing about our press landscape is that there are still so many different products to be found and there should actually be something suitable for everyone.
