  The Hochwacht in the Esslinger Burg
by DanielF

Although Esslingen is nowadays almost a suburb of Stuttgart, it was in the past a prosperous imperial city located in the route that linked Flanders with Italy.

The historic area of Esslingen is located on the left bank of the river Neckar and is full of half-timbered houses and other buildings of interest, like the old city hall and the churches of Saint Denis and of Our Lady.

The city has also preserved part of its Medieval defensive system, including the Fortress pictured here.
