This is a quite place to walk around and have a great view of the Nekar Valley area. There was plenty of parking available. It was a short walk up to the old fortification.

A must if you are in Esslingen. You can walk on these castle walls like the archers did in past. It has an amazing view of the city too. There are many benches for you to sit and relax.

But most people park somewhere near the Market Place of Esslingen and walk up the romantic old stairs to the Burg, where you have awesome views on Esslingen and you feel thrown back to the Medieval.
