Wolfschlugen — Spring Board To The Swabian Alb

Amidst fields of yellow flowers and bright green trees lies the town of Wolfschlugen. The only bad thing I can think about this place is that it isn’t very big, just seven square kilometers.

But, Wolfschlugen lies within the Swabian Alb. Great — who wouldn’t want to hike the Swabian Alb?

Do it, then head off to the Dorfbrunnen and drink a good beer. You’ve earned it. ;-)

Since Wolfschlugen is so small, don’t expect too much in the sightseeing department. But, I wouldn’t miss a stop to the local Evangelical Church, or the Rathaus (Town Hall) that has a stone inscription dating back over 400 years.

A number of hiking “paths” will take you all around the region, venturing as far as bordering Nürtingen and Filderstadt (yeah, including the Stuttgart Airport (STR)!).

No need to go that far, though, you could always just sit at a table outside the ice cream parlor, or head for some Chinese food.

Nevermind, why do Chinese when there are a few places that serve up regional cuisine, like the Hexenbanner-Stuben or the Restaurant Sonne?

During one of Wolfschlugen’s festivals, you can sample all kinds of regional dishes too. The Summer Festival in June is a biggie, and there’s yet another big festival in September. The Community Festival is held in between in July.

These are all in addition to the Weekly Market (Wednesdays 8am – noon), held right next to the Rathaus selling all sorts of fruit, veggies, and even plants & flowers.

It’s the same location for the Krämermarkt in November, which sells even more goods like jewelry and clothing. The Christmas Market is one of the biggest, held on the 1st Advent. Here’s your chance to buy a handmade Christmas wreath or other handicrafts.

Speaking of handicrafts, Wolfschlugen is known for its embroidery. The Strickereimuseum (Embroidery Museum) tells the story of its history since the 19th century, and children are still taught the craft.

Great shopping, family friendly, awesome scenery, delicious food, international airport — what else do you even need? Nothing… Wolfschlugen has it all.
