Reutlingen District buzzes with geological interest. Volcanic activity millions of years ago left this little wonderland in turmoil and the area is now dotted with waterfalls and caves, some of which are absolutely vast.

Bad Urach is a well-known spa town thanks to the mineral springs which rise here at an astonishing temperature of 61°C (142°F)!
The town also offers a late-medieval marketplace. Urach castle located nearby boasts one of the most attractive Renaissance rooms in the world in the form of the Golden Hall and shouldn’t be missed. What is more, history is regularly brought to life as staff and volunteers dress up in medieval costumes and re-enact life as it would have been in medieval times. Cool… :-)
There is plenty more to see in the Reutlingen district though. For example, Pfullingen is home to the astonishing Schönberg Tower which is essentially two enormous towers that meet at the top under the pointed green roof.
Lastly, Metzingen draws attention to the district’s wine-making traditions by housing seven original kelterns — or wine presses — in open-sided buildings for your perusal. But Metzingen is also popular for having a bunch of outlet stores such as that of Hugo Boss, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every year from all over Europe (including me!).
