Reutlingen Things to Do

    On top of the Achalm Hill, there are a few ruins which were once the walls of Achalm Castle. Achalm is the name of the castle, the mountain and the noble house which once resided there. The line of the Dukes of Achalm became extinct in 1092.
    The castle was built from around 1030 on and first mentioned in 1090. After the Duke of Achalm died without heir, the castle passed several hands. By 1498, it was falling into decay and in 1640, it was decided to pull the castle down. The King of Wüttemberg, whose ancestors owned the castle in the 1300s, decided to preserve the remains of the Bergfried (main tower) and even let it rebuild in 1822. Refurbishment works took place again in 1932. Today, the tower can be climbed and offers a view of Reutlingen and the region.

    A walk from the train station to the castle takes you – depending on your physical condition and the weather – between one and two hours. Once you pass the old railway line crossing Burgstrasse, it goes uphill only. Our guidebook suggested to go down on the eastern side through the village of Eningen unter Achalm and then back to Reutlingen. In my opinion, Eningen unter Achalm is not exiting at all. You won't miss anything if you go down the way you came up.

    This sommerfest starts today. I thought I would put it now with no pictures in case someone sees this page and wants to go and they don't know it is happening. Guess they have food, beer, and live stage set up. It's the 20th and 21st of June 2008.

    First, they have daily specials which cost 7euro. Then they have a menu of 5 or 6 different meals. There will be a fish dish, veg dish, usually an asian inspired something, a beef dish, and pasta possible. It's a well rounded selection and prices are from 7.60 to 9.50. They also have a soup for 2 euro and dessert for 1.50. The place get's pretty packed but you can get a seat. It seats about 60 or so people. And the servers run their butt's off.

    The ambience is very relaxing but upscale. There is an outdoor terrace open in the summer.

    Favorite Dish: All the dishes we have had were very good. I had lemongrass turkey breast over basmati rice with carrots in a curry sauce. I also had a salmon roullade that was cooked perfectly, as was the turkey. My husband had a beef roulade with 2 small but perfect knodle dumplings with a green bean puree. The dessert was a Topfenmousse which was a whipped cream topped with passion fruit puree and pieces, very good, small but just enough. The portions aren't huge here but very sufficient. I highly recommend eating here.

    This is a very casual place to just get a beer and try there cheap lunch specials. Ordering off the menu for food is expensive and should be avoided, get the specials. In good weather they have a huge terrace to hang out on. Inside is wood rustic decor, it's super casual. Service is very good. Just a basic place to drink a beer.

    Favorite Dish: The weiner schnitzel with fries is good, deep fried. Big portions. I had ziti baked in the oven, decent, huge portion.

    This store has everything Turkish you would every need. It has it's own bakery with Fladenbrot for 1 euro and a huge supermarket with fresh produce and own butcher shop.

    What to buy: The bakery has pide, Barek (meat and cheese), fladenbrot (my husbands favorite bread for sandwiches, it's a foot long) for 1 euro, baklava, lots of cookies and breads. The butcher shop specializes in lamb. There's lots of Yufka, sausages, yogurts, and a bigger selection of produce than lidl.

    What to pay: Inexpensive.

    We like to walk around this shop and gawk at all the specialty food items. They have a wide selection of anything and everything. There chocolate selection alone is stunning. They have their own bakery where you can watch them work. There is a huge pasta selection.

    What to buy: I've bought mushroom/truffle pasta, various Raclette cheeses, a raclette melter thingy for 2 people, chocolates, seafood stock paste (they have gourmet pre-made stocks too, expensive but very cool!) They have fresh pizza dough to take home and make your own pizza. I think that's cool, don't see that much.

    What to pay: It's pretty expensive but you can't get these items just anywhere.
