Stuttgarter Weinwanderweg information
To taste the region’s fruity Trollingers and citrusy Rieslings, factor in a stroll through the vineyards surrounding Stuttgart. The Stuttgarter Weinwanderweg comprises several walking trails that thread through winegrowing villages. One begins at Pragsattel station (on the U5 or U6 line) and meanders northeast to Max-Eyth-See, affording fine views from Burgholzhofturm. Visit the website for alternative routes, maps and distances.
From October to March, look out for a broom above the door of Besenwirtschaften (Besa for short). Run by winegrowers, these rustic bolt-holes are atmospheric places to chat with locals while sampling the latest vintage and Swabian home cooking. Some operate every year but most don’t. Check the Besen Kalender website (www.besenkalender.de) during vintage season.
