We know that Germany is world famous for its beer, but its world-class wines are worth their weight in grapes. Remshalden sits along the Rem Valley Route where you’ll have the chance to sample some of the best the region has to offer.
They’ve certainly had the time to get it right, as even monks have been making the vino here since 708 A.D. Actually, the Romans should be credited, too, as they’re thought to have brought the wine making grapes here even before that. There’s nothing wrong with wine tasting a few wineries along the way to find the one you like best.

Imbibing on a few glasses of Riesling isn’t the only thing that’s worth doing here. Remshalden is lucky enough to be in the Swabian Alb, which means the countryside is nothing short of gorgeous. There are so many bicycling trails throughout the area, though take caution… some trails go up to a 1000 meter (approx 3000 foot) elevation.
There are also 8 walking trails taking you through the woodland countryside.
You might want to join a guided tour to really gain some insight into this beautiful, yet rugged, terrain. No one said life was easy here in the Alb, but any time spent here is worth it!
After all that, you might not have the energy to swim in Remshalden’s two outdoor swimming pools, but at least try. Maybe you might want to save the hiking and cycling trails until after you’ve toured the town and seen all the old timber framed buildings.
If you can manage to pull yourself away from the great outdoors, Remshalden has a wonderful local history museum with an entire exhibit on the ceramics made in the region from the 12th through 14th centuries.
So, if you find yourself near Stuttgart do yourself a favor and head off about 20 km (approx 15 miles) northeast to Remshalden and enjoy a few glasses of the good stuff. If you’ve walked or bicycled up the mountains, you’ve certainly earned it.
