Travel Tips for Esslingen

The Alemannic Men

by Kathrin_E

Hehe...
Ladies, I have your attention now, haven't I?

However, this is about architecture not flirting...

The "Alemannic Men" are a type of construction in timberframe. For reasons of stability the vertical timbers have diagonal struts at the top and bottom that distantly resemble the outstretched arms and legs of a human figure. This system is typical for the Southwest of Germany.

Alemannic Men can be found on many half-timbered houses in Esslingen. Even prominent buildings like the old town hall and Schelztor have it. Apart from adding to stability it is also very decorative.

The old Market at the Marktplatz Esslingen

by Dimi1

There is a once a week a nice Market were all the farmers from around offer there fresh products for reasonable prices. It's nice to stroll around there and whatch the people's bargain... There are also local street vendors where you can enjoy local food to go...

Markplatz

by antistar

The largest of the squares in the town is the Markplatz, and a good location from which to navigate your way through the town's numerous sights. Here you will find the Stadtkirche St Dionys, as well as the Speyrer Zehnthof and the Spitalkelter behind it. It also connects to the Rathausplatz. It holds markets on Saturday and Wednesday mornings.

Women Church

by bugulma

The Women Church is founded in 1321. In a strange way the church symbolyzes a citizens protest against the bishops rules in the town. Therefore the citizens built another church. The interesting thing it was built from sandstone and it is destroyed often by weather (sun and wind).

Postmichelbrunnen: Tale of Michel the Post Rider

by Kathrin_E

... as depicted in the reliefs on the fountain. See the pictures in photos 2-5.

Once upon a time a very rich man from Esslingen was murdered. His corpse disappeared and the murderer was not found. His nephew inherited all his wealth and his death remained a mystery.

Some years later a post rider found a precious ring somewhere in the forest by the country road (photo 2). He intended to deliver it to the authorities in Esslingen when he arrived there but in the meantime decided to wear it because it was so beautiful.

He was wearing it in the tavern that evening but unfortunately it was recognized as being the ring of the rich old man who had been murdered (photo 3). Michel was arrested on the spot. Nobody believed him when he claimed to be innocent. He was tortured with utmost cruelty for days on end until the poor guy finally broke down and admitted he had committed the murder.

Michel was to be beheaded as a murderer, although he was innocent and he knew it. His last wish was riding the streets of the town on his white horse once more and blowing his horn. He stopped n front of the victim's house, now inhabited by the nephew and heir, and predicted he would appear as a ghost until the true murderer was found. Then he died under the executioner's sword (photo 4).

Every year during the night of St Michael's Day the ghost rider appeared in the streets of Esslingen, carrying his head under his arm and his horn blowing (photo 5). It finally turned out that the nephew had himself murdered the uncle and Michel was indeed innocent.
