Guided walk through old Esslingen on Saturday, September 26


Dear members and guests,

On Saturday, September 26, we offer a guided walk through old Esslingen focusing on the 13th Century, when Esslingen was a booming town which simultaneously built 4 large churches, the town wall, the Neckar bridges and many beautiful half-timbered houses, including the oldest half-timbered houses in Germany. We will take a leisurely stroll through Esslingen and learn about all these landmarks. A real highlight is the "Altes Rathaus", a beautiful half-timbered building with a Renaissance facade containing a fabulous astronomical clock. Meeting time 14.45 pm on the marketplace next to the tourist info center, on the north side of the Stadtkirche (church with two towers). The tour will be in English and last about two hours. The tour will end around 17.00 pm at the Restaurant Palmscher Bau, Innere Bruecke 2, Esslingen (Tel: 0711-350 245) where we will enjoy a pleasant dinner together. Come and join us!

We still must follow Corona Rules for this event. We are limited to 30 participants, first come-first served. Don’t forget to bring a mask with you. We will practice social distancing during the walk. Masks will be required to enter the restaurant. If you have recently been ill or are showing cold or flulike symptoms, please do not attend. The walking will mostly be level, with some small up and down, and some cobblestone. We will be underway for about two hours. Some conditioning necessary. Wear comfortable walking shoes. This tour will be held, rain or shine. Dress accordingly. This is a great opportunity for those new to the area, those who do not know Esslingen, and those who love to hear my voice ! :o

Cost: The guided tour through Esslingen is free. We will dine in the Palmscher Bau. There is ample space available. Dinner will be a la carte (individual payment). They offer Swabian, German and international cuisine, including vegetarian/vegan. To see the menu go to www.palmscher-bau.de/speisen-getraenke. While enjoying dinner we will also have time to engage in pleasant conversation while reflecting on the beautiful historic setting we have just experienced. Please state with your reservation if you are joining us for dinner.


Best regards,
