We accessed the Castle ramparts via the long & steep walk up the covered steps to get the view of the Town & valley, which was worth the effort. Don't try it if you are unfit, though! We descended through the hillside vineyards and through...More

Enjoyed the walk through the Vineyard up to Esslinger Burg. We took the windy road rather than the steps. It was a steep walk but well worth it!

If you are in esslingen and physically able, hike to the top of this hill and take in the view from the castle. You can walk up a set of stairs (which are covered) . I called it the stairway to heaven!.. I think it’s...More

After a 1/2 day visit to the Mercedes Benz Museum, Esslingen Castle looked to be just a short distance away so we decided to check out this sweet looking town with a castle. First tip: the Metro stop for the town is Esslingen (Neckar). Just...More

Soothing place to spend your evening. With the castle tower and nearby garden providing a perfect picnic spot, this is one of the must visit place in Esslingen. Don't miss the view of the cathedral and old rathaus from here.

After 10 minutes climbing on the old steps. You could see the panoramic view of this beautiful town Esslingen. And also choose another small track down back to the city. It has no steps but can be closer to Hi the wine grapes. 大約爬行十分鐘的樓梯,你可以觀賞到Esslingen 美麗的城市全景。享受覺美的大草坪已經微風。下去時可以選擇旁邊的小徑,沒有樓梯且更貼近葡萄樹。

But most people park somewhere near the Market Place of Esslingen and walk up the romantic old stairs to the Burg, where you have awesome views on Esslingen and you feel thrown back to the Medieval.
