With less than nine square kilometers, did you know that Mutlangen is the smallest wine growing area in Baden-Württemberg? Yeah, I didn’t either until now. Still, viticulture is viticulture — so bring on the drink of the gods!
You can buy yourself some, or you can peruse all the fresh fruits and veg at Mutlangen’s Weekly Market that takes place every Thursday at 7am. Come winter, folks like to sleep a bit later — so it doesn’t start until 8am.
The wine does keep flowing at Mutlangen’s Dorffest (Village Festival), which happens every year in June. It’s full of dancing, eating (everything from crepes to pizza), and shopping (handmade crafts and a flea market).
Mutlangen — Top Areas Of Interest
Too crowded for you? I understand, we Germans love peace & quiet too, so head to the Mutlanger Heide. This nature area was once stomped upon by the Romans — and today it’s visitors and locals all looking to be one with nature.
It isn’t the only nature spot to be, ya know. This is the Swabian Alb and the Welzheimer Wald, so you can’t go wrong if you’ve taken any one of the many marked hiking (you can jog or Nordic Walk) or biking trails.
For a good rest, visit the Freizeitbad Mutlantis, which is a great indoor pool and sauna. Then go visit the village of Pfersbach to see the 19th century church.
Maybe just letting the kids run around one of Mutlangen’s playgrounds, ordering pizza delivery from Pizza King (I’m not making this up — they really deliver) for a quick bite.
Do you think I could find someone to deliver me a glass of Riesling? No, of course not. Oh well, can’t have everything — but Mutlangen gives it a damn good try. ;-)
