I finally made it to Ettlingen as an extension of the 3rd annual Karlsruhe Gluehwein meeting. Since then I've returned several times in different seasons.

Celts, Romans, Alamans and Franks inhabitated the area where the Alb river leaves the valley in the bronze and iron times. Ettlingen was first mentioned as Ediningom in 788.

    Ettlingen looks like a nice little town, a good place for a Christmas market and a VT-meeting!

    I'd like to visit this picturesque little town with some great architecture. Half-timbered houses look great at night in your pictures.
