Neckarsulm derives its name from the Neckar and Sulm rivers that flow by its shores. From a tourist’s point of view this means endless vistas of great natural beauty and water-based activities that would certainly add volumes to a vacation.
You will be right of course in imagining this. But Neckarsulm has definitely more to offer than you could have counted on.
A slow stroll along Marktstraße and Löwengasse will make you feel like you’ve somehow entered a bygone era. these quaint streets are lined with impeccable half-timbered homes where time stands still. Visit the Old Winepress, the Old House of the Village, and the Old House for Baking to recapture this same feeling.
Neckarsulm’s river scenery is enhanced even more by the ancient town walls that run along its riverside. More medieval architecture is to be found at the St. Dionysius Church, an imposing specimen of baroque architecture, in the city center.
The Town Hall is another imposing structure that you shouldn’t miss. The Castle of the Teutonic Knights or the Deutschordensschloss will impress you with its antique stateliness. It is, however, today the Two Wheeler Museum.
Speaking of two wheelers, it might interest you to known that Neckarsulm is the home of the Audi automobiles. It’s quite fascinating to know that the town has this affinity for wheels that go back to the 19th century; and the production of bicycles, which then graduated to motorbikes and eventually to automobiles. So if you’re an aficionado like me, you’ve come to the right place. :-)
Well, Neckarsulm is more than a biker’s paradise; there’s also fun and excitement in other forms such as the kind you’ll find at the Aquatoll, a popular swimming destination. This is no mere swimming pool, but an exciting venue with sauna, white train, and adventure slides that kids of all ages can enjoy.
