A Walk Around Esslingen

Esslingen is a breath-taking town with a village feel and located around 20 minutes out of Stuttgart’s main city via the S-Bahn S1 line.

There is archaeological evidence the people had settled dating a far back as 1000 B.C. And  now with a population of over 92 thousand Esslingen has evolved and grown, yet maintained a breathtaking historical feel. I recently visited the Christmas markets and was completely blown away by its beauty.

Esslingen went on to become part of the Roman Empire. Then an Imperial City up until 1802, and was occupied by U.S soldiers towards the end of world war 2. Despite its history Esslingen’s medieval character has been preserved, and it suffered very little damage during the 2nd world war.

As you walk around this stunning town the beauty is such that you feel like you are on a movie set. This leaves you not knowing where to look first. I  have already shared a little about the Christmas Markets, which are nothing short of magical. But I wanted to share some photos of Stuart from Go Eat Do and my guided tour with the ever so wonderful Patrick.

This is the prettiest town ever. Esslingen feels like something straight out of a Disney movie. Yet it’s a real living breathing town. And somewhere I can’t wait to return. Because honestly, we down need to go far when we have places like this an hour away.

  1. It’s so beautiful and it really does look like a place straight out of a Disney movie. I’d love to just wander about taking photos too. I don’t fancy doing that tightrope walk though, eek!

  2. We were equally entranced by the German towns and villages we discovered when we took a Rhine cruise – so picture postcard they do appear unreal.
    Love the tight-rope walker – that sort of humour appeals to me!

  3. Oh this is just wonderful, what a great spot Esslingen is. We’re huge fans of Germany and it seems so typical with the coloured buildings – how fab. I must have a nose at your Christmas market post too. Stuttgart is on my list to visit although I was in Berlin recently and got my market fix there. Love the atmosphere, the smells and all the goodies! Happy New Year x

  6. I’m itching to visit the German markets this year – they look wonderful. And with settings like this they are too good to resist. I agree that we’ve got some amazing places so close us in the UK. It makes deciding on places to visit even more difficult! #MondayEscapes

  7. Looks like a very beautiful town! I never hears of it but there are so many lovely places to discover yet. To bad though Germany had lots of rain and cold during winter time. But the tightrope walker compensates for that 😉
