Fellbach — City Of Wine With Half-Timbered Houses

In Fellbach you can look forward to a heady mix of culture, history, and great wine to go with almost anything. Located close to Stuttgart, it is known as the Gateway to the fabulous Rems Valley.

The Neckar and Rems rivers flow by adding immensely to the scenic beauty which is embellished by acres of vineyards and orchards. You simply have to be there to experience the ecstatic overpowering of peace and tranquility that envelopes you as you take in the richness of the landscape. Aided, no doubt, by the contents of the long-stemmed glass that would soon become a faithful companion.

Wander into the Old Town area to revel in the timeless beauty of medieval architecture and local culture. The Town Hall is the epitome of both with its Glockenspiel made of porcelain. You can almost hear it ring out a merry jingle as it must have done in the distant past.

Visit the City Library and the City Museum for all you’ll need to know to truly understand the historic connotations that went into the formation of this fabulous historic town.

In Fellbach you’ll find the 16th century Luther Church in an impressive gothic style. Impressive icons and religious artifacts and architectural features render this a sight not to be missed. You’ll be amazed to learn all about its eventful past as a church, a refuge, a fortress and then back again to its present avatar as a church.

Other historic buildings that you might want to visit in Fellbach are the Old Press which is said to be Germany’s largest community press, the House of Wines where you might get to taste some of the local production, and the Schwabenlandhalle which is the seat of art, architecture, and gastronomy. Here’s where you would go for opera, theater, gourmet dining — in short, a fantastic evening. :-)
