In a short distance from the Swiss border by the famous Bodensee (Lake Constance) is a small town of Rielasingen-Worblingen.
From first glance, you’d think that it’s just your average German town that offers the same old same old.
Not the case…
One of the town’s attractions is the Skulpturenweg (Sculpture Trail), a trail with numerous appealing sculptures scattered around town and along the Aach river.
Once you’ve captured all sculptures, and while you’re still at the Aach river, head over to another of the town’s attractions, the Naturbad Aachtal. This is an outdoor swimming pool supplied by natural spring water from the Aach river. You know what that means… Pure nature and regeneration of those rusty cells. ;-)
After you’ve got your fill of regeneration, try some locally specialties while sitting at a local restaurant. There’s a garden at Rielasingen-Worblingen’s Krone Hotel (one of only a small few hotels in and around Rielasingen-Worblingen) that makes the perfect setting to enjoy some vino.
The hotel itself is a charming place to call “home” for the time you’re in town. Looking more like a traditional style inn instead of a “hotel,” the Krone is affordable and offers guest nonsmoking rooms, continental breakfast, and WIFI. Sounds like everything a guest could ask for. :-)
It’s also close to a few of Rielasingen-Worblingen’s other places of interest (yes, it does have more).
One of those places is the ruins of Burg Rosenegg. The castle was built in the mid-13th century and four centuries later it had been sacked.
Much older than Burg Rosenegg (and still standing) is the church of St. Stefan. It was built in the year 1005, making it over a thousand years old. The Rielasingen-Worblingen Village Museum does an excellent job of explaining the history behind the church and the castle.
It won’t explain all the activities around Lake Constance or the nearby 18-hole golf course. Those you’ll have to experience on your own accord; which is when you’ll realize that Rieslingen-Worblingen isn’t the same old same old. ;-)
