Herrenberg impressed by the market place with its half-timbered architecture, the extraordinary collegiate church high above the town (with Kantor, own choir and orchestra) and the recreation area Nice book, a wooded ridge that runs to Tübingen. Mr. Berg is surrounded by the Black Forest, Swabian Alb, Lake Constance and the state capital of Stuttgart. Day trips from nature to culture tours are offered in countless variations. Ideal connections of public transport (S-Bahn, Ammertalbahn, Schönbuchbahn, regional trains, long-distance) and a network of bike paths promise car-free enjoyment. In particular, I would like to recommend a performance of the Stuttgart Ballet in Stuttgart State Theater.

Lady power, Germany is always worth traveling, always and everywhere. Especially southern Germany. Mr. Berg is a medieval town with lots of history. It is small and well arranged. There are some nice shops. Tourists from Herrenberg always visit Tübingen. It is because Mr. Berg does not offer much. I'm doing city tours and knows it. Beautifully book is parking at the feet of Herrenberg and is a tourist attraction. Otherwise we fall, here in Tübingen, not much a, unfortunately. I will send you some more left.

Dear visitors of the beautiful city of Herrenberg, this is ideally located between the Black Forest, Swabian Alb, Lake Constance and the city of Stuttgart. So it's worth, fan out in all four directions, you will always have a different experience. In Herrenberg you should definitely take a walk on the Schlossberg company, from where you have a beautiful view of the surroundings, while the most impressive collegiate church with its bell museum (open on Sundays) can visit. The original altar of this church is located in the Landesmuseum Stuttgart. Likewise, a stroll through the old town with its half-timbered houses and the traffic-free square is recommended. In bad weather a visit to the mineral spa in Böblingen with wonderful sauna area, or the mineral bath Bad Cannstatt worthwhile. Attractions near the university town of Tübingen, Waldenbuch with Castle and Museum Ritter Sport, Castle Ludwigsburg, the half-timbered town of Esslingen, and the Hermann Hesse Museum in Calw. I hope to have given you with this information some suggestions. Kind regards, Helga Wartner

Hello, I know Herrenberg not as good, but it's not too far to Tübingen and Stuttgart. Depending on how far you want to drive, there is also a trip to the Black Forest or even up to Lake Constance is worth. In December there will be in the region of beautiful Christmas markets in Tübingen from 11:12. until 13:12. Bebenhausen has a beautiful monastery. Also worth a trip is the Burg Hohenzollern, even there, there is a remarkable Christmas market. Who would like Outlets shopping, take the train to Metzingen. Otherwise wander im Schönbuch or Black Forest, when the weather participates. I wish nice stay. Best regards Vera German man
