When you think of Germany, you probably don’t think of the flat part of the country that Sachsenheim is in. However, the flat land makes it easy to grow grapes. Kirbachtal, a part of the city is on the Württemberger Weinstraße, or the Württemberg Wine Road.
Those who want to know more about how wine is made, what the history of wine is and all those other details, should take a stroll down the cultural and historical wine education path.
Those who have always had a thing for firemen and big red fire engines might enjoy a trip to the Firefighters Museum. It is the only museum of its kind in the province of Baden-Württemberg and can be found by following the signs to the Feuerwehrmuseum.
Sachsenheim — Top Areas Of Interest
If you ask a local what to see in Sachsenheim, he or she is probably going to point you in the direction of the Water Castle. It was originally built in the 14th century and was rebuilt after a fire burnt it down in the 15th century. The castle acts as the city hall today, and is a hallmark of the city.
A trip to Sachsenheim wouldn’t be complete without going to the Nature Park Stromberg-Heuchelberg. The motto of the park is “wine, forest and feeling comfortable,” which may sound weird in English, but makes perfect sense in German.
The best time to come to the park is during the week when it’s not so crowded. Then you can discover the wine growing area and the forests yourself (and hopefully feel comfortable doing it in this huge, 330 square kilometer park).
If you are just traveling to the city for a couple of days, there are guest houses, inns and vacation apartments all over the city. To fill up your tank, call up one of the vintners in the area, take a tour, sample some wine and enjoy a nice meal.
