  • Outside Stuttgart

    Stuttgart Off The Beaten Path

    We could see this big thing on top of a hill that looked like a castle or fortress. So we decided to drive up there. It's a big fortress with a beer garden inside. There are events there all the time. There was a bird exhibit and live music when we were there. It's quite the walk up to it so be ready for that. Great view too.There's a fancy...

  • TV Tower

    Stuttgart Off The Beaten Path

    Visiting the TV tower you can sit comfortably in the cafe drinking coffee and enjoying the view. It is really an event to take the elevator up to the observation platform and then go down to the cafe. I enjoyed the breathtaking views from the tower!

    Stuttgart Off The Beaten Path

    I was lucky enough to have a wife that loves me, and brought me a Sachertorte from Salzburg on her way into Stuttgart. VT member B1Bob alerted me to this wonderful food when he learned of Sarah's plan to come in from Salzburg. If you are going to be in the southern part of Germany and can make it on a side trip to Salzburg, we highly recommend...

    Stuttgart Off The Beaten Path

    Surely you can´t be looking for elephants in Europe or specifically Stuttgart but tell you what, even the ones in Wilhelma zoo are real.

This formed the foundation of the present day...

  • Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen

    Eggenstein is just north of Karlsruhe. It is a small town - nothing exciting, just very typical: a main street, a church, some shops, some small restaurants and some nice houses along the main street.

  • Östringen

    I only happened to get to know about this place, because my wife tini58de had a concert there with her choir, which I wanted to see and hear.So I took the opportunity and the camera and looked around this nice little town. Again, nothing spectacular, but very typical!Östringen is in the north-east of Baden-Württemberg, between Bruchsal and...
