Germany Trip

For four days, in September, we have a car seeing just a few things in Southern Bavaria (Alps and Allgau area). My question is we paired back going to the Mosel region, is there any beautiful wine towns in Baden-Wurtttemberg that is any where near what the Mosel region looks like?

We are going to make it to Baden-Baden for a while so anything around there coming from S. Bavaria. Thanks

Baden wine region

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baden_%28wine_region%29

baden-baden.de/en/…294

Also on the route is the Württemberg wine region

The Neckar valley looks more like the Moselle valley. It is however much more industrial.

Esslingen is a nice old city which once lived from vine growing and trading.

Besigheim ( www.besigheim.de ) north of Stuttgart along the Neckar River was just voted Germany's most picturesque wine town, not bad for a town that even many locals have not heard of!!!! It is in the Wuerttemberg wine region where most (about 80%) of the wines are reds. Lauffen ( www.lauffen.de ) just a little further north has a small completely walled old town, and in nextdoor Nordheim is our favorite German winery, award winning Rolf Willy ( www.rolf-willy.de/willy/index.php… ).

Many of the vineyards along the Neckar River are terraced making them very scenic, and they are probably at their best at Hessigheim ( www.hessigheim.de ) just to the east of Besigheim by the "Rock Gardens".

All of these places are along the Wuerttemberg Wine Route so the vineyards are well sign-posted with small brown signs.

abalada's suggestion of Esslingen ( www.esslingen.de ) is also excellent as it has many vineyards, an excellent well-preserved medieval old-town, and is home to Germany's oldest Sekt (sparkling wine) cellar, Kessler- www.kessler-sektkellerei.de .

Stuttgart ( www.stuttgart-tourist.de ) lies between Esslingen and those other places and is Germany's largest city with vineyards, and they are extensive at that, making it very unusual for such a large European city. There are pleasant walks through the vineyards with wineries and places to eat along the way ( www.stuttgarter-weinwanderweg.de ), a particularly nice scenic walk is from Obertuerkheim to the Wine museum in Uhlbach through the vineyards.

A few options include the Bergstrasse with wine towns such as Weinheim.

Do a search here on TA under Baden Wine Road.

However, better is to just go cross the Rhine (at Mannheim for example) to the "German WIne Road". (Rhineland-Pfalz). It is the oldest wine road in Germany. There are wine festivals almost every weekend.

Then also head south and towards Alsace and the famous Alsatian Wine route. The border into France is about 90 minutes from Mannheim/Heidelberg.
