Some places in Germany will keep you busy for a month of Sundays and you still won’t get to see everything. Not so in the case of Niefern-Öschelbronn, but there’s enough to keep you busy for at least one Sunday (or two).
If you decide to stay longer than just a day there are a few little hotels and even one large chain brand for any overnight accommodation.
What you’ll probably notice first about this town in Baden-Württemberg (just northeast of Pforzheim) is just how neat and tidy it is, right down to the colorful flower boxes that adorn just about every window. There are also quite a few half timbered houses lining the city streets and those flower boxes only add to their beauty.
A great way to see just how picturesque Niefern-Öschelbronn really is, climb one of the two observation towers at the edge of town.
Most visitors come to see the stunning Evangelical City Church. It might be an original 14th century Gothic church, but the artwork that has been added through the years makes this place utterly amazing. Pay extra attention to the choir paintings, they’re nothing short of fabulous and certainly painted with love of the divine.
Niefern-Öschelbronn at one time did have the requisite medieval castle, though today it’s used as a child welfare office. If you want to learn more of its history (and the town as a whole) then visit the Kirnbach Museum, which has exhibits on all of the town’s history.
Niefern-Öschelbronn is also a cultural city; with all kinds of classical music concerts, plays, and art exhibits. There’s usually something going on so you’ll never know what you’ll be treated to. But, in June the town hosts the annual Sommerfest and the Kastanienfest.
Come to think of it, maybe in Niefern-Öschelbronn you got more at your disposal than just for one Sunday alone? ;-)
