      Neckar canal view from Maille
    by Kathrin_E

The former wetlands between the Neckar canals underneath the stone bridge became a solid island in the run of the centuries. Nowadays this island is the only park in the centre of Esslingen.
It is named "Maille" because in former times the people of Esslingen used to play paille-maille (pall-mall) here.

Families: There is a playground for children.

Photographers: Check out the views from the banks of the Neckar canals and of course the stone bridge.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
