    Another town outside the main city of Stuttgart, SE about 10 mins. drive or 20 mins. by train. It's a very picturesque town. It's on the 8-18 th of August 2008. Please see the website. They have alot of events, Karaoke, Country night, and such. There are menus on the page too under speisekarte. So lots of food, entertainment and wine. Hang out with some locals.

    We went in 2008. It was a Sunday and it was really crowded. It's basically a circle of restaurants serving their specialties, some had massive kitchens they had moved there. In one area was the jazz band. We found the food and beverages prices to be high and it was hard to find a seat. A weekday would be a better time to go.

    That part of Esslingen is very beautiful.

    Most small cities/towns/villages around Stuttgart have their own winefestival. This one is in Boeblingen. It's nice, small, and local, fun! There was a flea market going on when we were there also. You can rent paddle boats there also. They have food too. It's self serve. You order, get the ticket and pass it to the ladies with the food.

    It's Sept. 13 and 14th 2008.

    The performance, crowning the King and Queen
    4 more images

    This is a great festival! There is a performance in a large field. It is a reenactment of an older time where they had a race through corn fields and which ever boy or girl won became the king and queen of the festival. There are many great period costumes and a nice parade afterwards through the festival area. There are rides and beer booths, plus food of course. It's very medieval and right in city center of Markgroeningen. You have to park and walk in. You have to pay to see the performance, it's near the main fest area. There are bleachers to sit in. I recommend going to the performance, there is a fee. This year it's 22-25 Aug. 2008.

    A Medieval Experience

    The church
    4 more images

    The Stiftkirche is a great church to visit in Tubingen. There are coffins that have forms on the tops of them in the likeness of the person inside. They are all in medieval clothing. It's really neat. You can walk up to the top of the church. It's really neat since I didn't know how far up we have to walk and exactly we were going at the time. There is a spectacular view from the top. It's right in the middle of old town. You can't miss it. Look for the big clock at the top. It's only about 3 mins. from the River and uphill from market square.

    Werners Biergarten/beer garden Sindelfingen

    by seoulgirl Updated Aug 7, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Where you pick up the food and beer

    A super outdoor beergarden in the town of Sindelfingen. It's about a 5 min. walk from the Rathaus. It's very large and self service. You can get fries, Flamkuchen (thin crust dough w/ savory or sweet ingredients), sausages, salad, and a few other things. Happy hour is 5-6 and it's 2 for 1. The deal is you get a huge beer or a huge mug of wine. The wine comes in the size of the small beer which is a 1/2 litre, the beer is a litre. It's cheap too. It's between Mahdentalstrasse and the Rathaus which is the city center/Martplatz of Sindelfingen.

    It's across from Kellbach Guesthouse and pub. You can almost not see it, it's up the stairs, you will see a small sign on the sidewalk. Go into Kellbach for a beer. They have a nice garden area too.

    Sindelfingen is SW of Stuttgart. IKEA is in Sindelfingen as well as Daimler Chrystler.

    It's only open in nice weather, call for times.

    This is a cute festival which feature saukraut and the mighty cabbage. There is also an old car show/parade to entertain you. We also saw some guys with big elaborate mustaches made with beard hair I believe. Probably some mustache club thing going on. Really cool. There's a tent set up that had 2 guys playing German folk songs and the food was awesom looking. Huge plates of course. We had a Saurkraut Kuchen, a saurkraut quiche. It was different but good. There was a local sweet wine as a special also. They also had little booths with people selling their local food specialties or liquors. A nice little fest. Oh, there were larger booths alongside the road that were pretty packed. It's not a very crowded festival, very nice!

    You can buy buckets of fresh sauerkraut or big cone shaped cabbages. They will also shred your cabbage fresh for you.

    Fasching Parade

    We went to a Fasching parade in Tubingen. The people dress up in costumes and parade down the street. There is alot of interaction with the crowd. They like to play pranks of children and just everyone. The witches like to pretend to steal the children and there's lots of candy thrown about. Plus there is some partying going on. Always some beers and liquor tents. There are many parades throughout Stuttgart. It goes on for weeks. We went into Reutlingen after the parade and people were honking there horns and shouting. Big party time.

    5 minutes away from “Residenzschloss” lies the "Favorite" castle built between 1713-1723 by Herzog Eberhard Ludwig. It has a baroque façade.

    Besides the artistic wall paintings, the castle is surrounded by 72 hectares of woods and wildlife.

    The „Residenzschloss“ is situated in Ludwigsburg which lies in the North west of Stuttgart city.
    The castle was built by Herzog Eberhard Ludwig and counts as one of the biggest still existing Germany baroque castles. It was once the residence of Württenbergs dukes and queens.
    Fondest Memory: Fabulous gardens consisting of over 30 fairy scenes surround the castle offering a breathtaking sight.

    Bebenhausen is a small village near Tuebingen. You can walk there. Enjoy the beautiful old monastery and the castle. The whole little town is under heritage. Its like walking through an old medieval village in the past.

    Some small cities nearby deserve a visit. The old and typical architecture of their houses are worth seeing. Sometimes it seemed I was taking part of a fairy tale...Sooo cute!!!
