Travel Tips for Esslingen

Biergarten am Rathausplatz

by Dimi1

If you like beer, you'll find one of the best German beers there in Esslingen. Spend an afternoon with the locals and enjoy it e.g. at that spot in the center of the Altstadt am Rathausplatz... You'll love it!

Church of St. Dionys

by katis

Nowadays' look is the 3rd reconstruction of this church, original bulding stood here already in the 8th century.
The bridge between the towers is there mainly for static purposes. In the 17th century, when the south tower started to lean, they simply connected it to the other.

The Inner Bridge: Esslingen's Ponte Vecchio

by Kathrin_E

The stone bridge has provided a safe and dry way across the Neckar canals and the wetland between them since the middle ages. I call it "Esslingen's Ponte Vecchio" because it is built with houses. The western side is completely closed while the eastern side has small freestanding houses on top of each pillar.

In the middle of the bridge there is a bridge chapel, the little gothic chapel of St Nicolaus. The chapel is a memorial site for the victims of the Nazi regime and World War II.

The Maille

by Kathrin_E

The former wetlands between the Neckar canals underneath the stone bridge became a solid island in the run of the centuries. Nowadays this island is the only park in the centre of Esslingen.
It is named "Maille" because in former times the people of Esslingen used to play paille-maille (pall-mall) here.

Families: There is a playground for children.

Photographers: Check out the views from the banks of the Neckar canals and of course the stone bridge.

The Burg

by antistar

Unmissably placed high above the town centre, the Burg and its accompanying buildings of the Dicker Turm and Hochwacht offer a slightly surreal sight. The wood roofed walls ramp up to the Burg at the top at almost exactly 45 degrees, before leveling off between the Hochwacht and Dicker Turm. The Burg itself is a 13th century defensive system, which offers gardens to walk in and views to marvel at. You can see all the sights of the town, as well as all the way to the Schwabian Jura over the Neckar Valley, making it a great place to chart your tour of the town.

The Burg was never really a fortress, but more of a fortified outpost on the city wall. It's construction began during the reign of II of Hohenstaufen, and was extended by Rudolf of Habsburg in 1286 during his battles with Eberhard, Earl of Württemberg. It was more of a glorified defence system and fire watch, than a proper castle. Today it is a place for local events, held in the Innerer Burghof, the gardens within the walls. There are also a couple of restaurants too.

You can reach the Burg by two routes, one is the steep climb up the stairs in the 45 degree wall that leads up the left hand side to the Hochwacht, the other is a dusty track that winds more sedately up the right hand side of the vineyards and pig pens to the Dicker Turm. Both routes are potentially exhausting for those that aren't used to it, or, like I was, already worn out from days of walking, so be prepared.
