A walk around Bad Urach is a MUST DO!
It's a Town full of half-timber building's that are in different style's and height's, some are rather small, and others are massive! There are even some that have a bit of a lean up, and NO! I hadn't had too much to drink! If you don't walk, you don't see them.
I found several Gate Tower's and an old painting of a Palm. Information tells me there is a "Palm Room" in Urach Palace, and the wall's are painted with Palm's like the one in my photo.
There are tour's of the inside, but I didn't do one. I have put the website below in case you are interested.
More walking, and I find an interesting sculpture of a person playing a musical instrument, then a Church, and there is so much more to see than I saw, so come and have a look for yourself!
Located just 21kms away from the town of Lichtenstein is the pretty half-timbered town of Bad Urach.
The Market Square was wonderful!
The very nice, half-timbered Town Hall, built in 1440 is located here. Orginally, the ground floor was used as an indoor Market for Butcher's and Baker's, but it is closed now.
There is an impressive, Gothic Market Fountain, five tiers high. The Whole square is surrounded with the lovely old 15th - 16th century half-timbered homes, and there is plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the view!
A really lovely place to be.
Bad Urach is only 45mins from Stuttgart.
In days of Bismarck Bad Urach became especially popular resort for the European elite. Bismarck often visited the town. Therefore the monument was erected.
Dr Bier is a small bar beside the main road running to the side of Bad Urach with a nice view of the surrounding hills.
If you want to see local people rather than the tourist who visit the area, this may be the place for you. Ran by a really pleasant guy (I think he's Turkish) who does appreciate your custom. Music is the main attraction, with songs played practically day. The owner was more than willing to put requests on the turntable later in the evening.
Dress Code: Absolutely not.
