Esslingen

Just 10 kilometers from Stuttgart, you will discover Esslingen, a beautiful city that keeps in its old town several medieval monuments. You’ll be fascinated by walking beside the romantic canals and quaint alleyways which will take you back in time to perceive medieval rustic charm.

Stands out among its buildings the former House of Trade and Taxes, the Kauf-und Steurerhaus, which is now the Town Hall. On its facade is situated the astronomical clock, one of the oldest in Germany and the only one that has retained its original 1951 mechanism, which drives clockwise and funny figures.

Furthermore, Esslingen still retains that importance as winemaking, it had in the Middle Ages and produces wines really appreciated. You must try the Württemberger variety!

And if you visit Esslingern in December, do not miss the spectacular Christmas market, with its traditional Renaissance fair where artists, craftsmen and merchants, dressed in medieval costumes, look like they are really coming from ancient times.
