Esslingen sights

Esslingen has sights and historic buildings in abundance. From the oldest continuous row of half-timbered houses to Esslingen Castle and spectacular churches. But the icing on the cake is the River Neckar, whose canals meander through the heart of the Old Town. Sheer Venice feeling. We have put together the best tips for you.

Half-timbered buildings and precious churches make a trip to Esslingen an experience. Esslingen Castle towers over the historic Old Town with its characteristic silhouette of the High Watch Tower, Ropers' Walk and Big Tower.

You have to walk a city - the best way to conquer it is on foot

Leave your car at the Old Town ring road, park in one of the covered car parks and explore the former imperial city on foot. Everything is easily accessible. This is the best way to experience how the city lives and breathes.


Esslingen is a wine town to the core

Here, old winegrowing traditions live on to this day. Not only on Wine Hiking Day, but all year round - for example in the old Beutau, the old winegrowers' quarter.
