Mittelstadt Germany

We used to live in a small town called Mittelstadt. It has about 10 stores, 2 buslines, and 2 stop lights. It is 19 mins. drive to Reutlingen and 15 to Tubingen. The Neckar is just around the corner and there are mazes of amazing bike paths around the bend also. There is also a naked/nudist park by a pond that is really nice and is visible by a main road. We moved 3 years ago to Sindelfingen to a really nice apt. Very happy with the area and choices, more choices.

Reutlingen

This was the largest town closest to us by bus. It has a market every Tuesday and Saturday. There are alot of shops and a main train station where there are alot of restaurants.

Lichtenstein Castle

This is one of the many castles in Germany. This one is near the town of Hanau. It's just south of Stuttgart. It's worth a trip to see it. See my pages for more info. Or just head toward Hanau. You can't miss it.

    Glad you enjoy living near Stuttgart. I've been to Böblingen and Esslingen on business, but never went to the castle you mentioned.

    Excellent tips and photos -- especially about the different festivals! I recently returned from a trip to Germany. It's a great country! Best from New Jersey, Bill

    Nice rundown of the fests. I went to Sommerfest last weekend and we're also hitting onion fest this week. Have fun!

    Good information about the Getränke store! The system can be very confusing, even to Germans.

    My Mom's family is from near Tubingen and oddly enough it's one area of Germany I have explored very little. Food sounds great but what about the beer?
