Day trips from Stuttgart in Germany 1. If you get there early, you beat the crowds and have the place to yourself. We parked the car at the bottom of the hill and walked to the castle. This may present a challenge to some, but I assure you the effort will be rewarding.
My favourite place to view the castle is at the location Raichberg 1, Albstadt-Onstmettingen. The castle is still inhabited by royalty, namely the Duke of Urach, but it is open to the public. Here you will be able to see an impressive collection of medieval weapons.
There are other activities near the castle such as a tree canopy walk; ideal for older kids and grown-ups. Hohenneuffen Castle Hohenneuffen Castle is a great choice for an outing Hohenneuffen Castle is a large ruin in the Swabian Alb foothills, 25km from Stuttgart, above the town of Neuffen, Germany.
You park quite close to the castle and then take a 1 km inclined hike. It is tiring if you are not in shape like me but the good news is refreshing beer and food await at the top. You can visit the castle walls, take part in falconry shows, and enjoy the views while dining in the gorgeous setting of the Burg Hohenneuffen restaurant.
The region is abundant with cherry trees, near the volcanic mountain, Jusi. At the top, the view is splendid. There are several ways you can hike the mountain, but I think the woodland trail is best, especially on a hot day. Ironically, the shy king built the castle to withdraw from public life, and now crowds of people come to visit his private refuge. Today, Neuschwanstein is one of the most visited castles in Europe.
We have visited the castle four times, taking family and friends. The area alone makes the hour and fifteen minute trip from Stuttgart worth the visit. You pass through lush forest and small, quaint villages.
The park itself is in a thick patch of forest. Besides the toboggan ride, the park offers trampolines, water bumper cars, merry-go-rounds and other small rides for the little ones.
The entrance is free; you only pay for the fun. The toboggan does not run if it rains or in winter. As far as payment goes, bring cash, as no cards are accepted. It ends with a cool degree spiral lookout tower. Along the walk, you have different obstacles, which you can choose to go through. Being there with kids, of course, we had to tackle them. The entire area is superb.
The thick Black Forest full of pine, fir, and beech trees is enchanting the senses from all directions. In addition to the chapel, take your time and enjoy the vineyards, especially in the fall.
The smell of the grapes and the fresh air will make you hungry, and this is the perfect place for a picnic. Lay on the grass and enjoy the solitude as well as the views over Stuttgart.
A vineyard view at Wurttemberg Hill 8. We had never visited for leisure until last year. As the historic centre of Frankfurt, the Altstadt dates back to , but only small sections of the Altstadt were rebuilt after World War II.
There are plenty of things to do in Frankfurt, Germany to keep you busy for days. If you plan to do a lot of sightseeing in Frankfurt, pick up the Frankfurt Card to save money and skip the lines. You can also check out some of the top attractions and tours of Frankfurt and book your tickets in advance. You can experience the unique atmosphere of Rothenburg ob der Tauber when you stroll through town.
Rothenburg odT is one of three walled cities on the famous Romantic Road. The colourful architecture and the solitude of the place were enchanting. Triberg Triberg is home to the largest cuckoo clock in the world Triberg is a little town in the Black Forest offering the quintessential German experience; cuckoo clocks, lederhosen and dirndls, traditional German food and breathtaking forest landscapes. The spectacular rapids plunge to a depth of m over seven cascades.
I recommend visiting in summer so you can hike beside the waterfall, all the way to the top. We go there to pick strawberries from our favourite farm in Dingelsdorf, Fuchshof.
The trip to Dingelsdorf is 1. Strawberry picking near Lake Konstanz Schorndorf Schorndorf is a fairytale town The first record of Schorndorf was in Its viniculture, its wine and salt trade, as well as numerous other businesses, brought considerable prosperity. I loved discovering this town and observing its beautiful architecture.
