Metzingen is the perfect destination for visitors with shopping on their minds. From Hugo Boss (my favorite) to Escada and beyond, here’s where you get beautiful bargains on most branded labels that you’ve been waiting to get your hands on.
Whether you’re after shoes or clothes or both, Metzingen, my friend, is THE place to shop till you drop and still have a happy wallet!
Metzingen is not done with you once the shopping is done, though. “Snip Town,” as it is known in certain circles, has a traditional winery thing going that will elevate your visit to heady heights. The pristine countryside is the perfect excuse to take a tour of a winery and go tasting to your heart’s content or till you’re stuffed with wine and cheese.
For this and almost anything to do with wine, you need to visit the Seven Wine Presses dating back to the 1500s.
Then, of course, there are the historic structures and half-timbered buildings that beckon endlessly. The Old Town Hall is an awesome sight and so is the gothic St. Martin’s Church. Whether it’s the exterior facade of the former or the awesome interiors of the latter, you’re in for a treat.
There’s a castle ruin that you must set apart time to visit. There it stands against the silky blue skies straddling the sides of a mountain — the Hohenurach Castle in nearby Bad Urach. The views from up here is simply amazing!
Back in Metzingen is the Kelternplatz where you have the Weinbaumuseum, a library, and a good choice of restaurants to relax in after your wanderings.
Metzingen has something for everyone, and the Bad Urach waterfall is definitely a sight to soothe nature lovers. It falls about 37 meters down to the rocks below and is almost hidden by the lush greenery till you almost come upon it. Of course, you hear it long before you actually see it.
