One of Germany’s prettiest towns. Herrenberg is a small and charming town about 30 km from Stuttgart. The half-timbered houses, cobble-stoned streets, picturesque market square (Marktplatz) and the magnificent view from the top of the castle ruins will make you feel like you’re part of a fairy tale. Herrenberg is a hidden gem that not many people have discovered yet.
Plan to spend at least half a day in Herrenberg. Most stores open at 10 a.m. Bakeries open earlier around 7 a.m. You can have brunch, lunch, or dinner at the restaurants and cafes. You can take a nice walk around town, go up to the castle ruins or see the bell museum (Glockenmuseum) inside the Stiftskirche. The Marktplatz is a lovely area to relax and have an Eis kaffee (iced coffee with a scoop of ice cream) or Spaghetti Eis from one of the Eis cafes or gelaterias.
Best time to visit is Monday – Saturday when most places are open. Wear some comfortable walking or hiking shoes and don’t forget to bring your camera.
