nature & culture

Experience nature, enjoy the landscape - in the Remstal you can do it right from the front door. Vineyards stretch up the slopes, while wooded hills and meadow orchards characterize the landscape. Experience the diversity of nature on our hikes, learn more about geology and ecology, for example on the geological path in Grunbach and Winnenden or while walking on the bee route. Learn about the history of the giant sequoias and immerse yourself in the exciting world of water, or how about a trip into the eventful history of the Remstal and a hike in the footsteps of the Romans and Staufer?

Concerts & Festivals

An open-air cinema on the Neckar beach in Remseck, the "105 Grad Oex-Sunset-Lounge" with cool music in the vineyards, the brilliant "Shining Vineyard" with fire artistry, which is known far beyond the borders, or a sparkling wine tasting with live events -Music in Waiblingen's old town ... if you're sociable and like to party, you're in good hands at the 121st German Hiking Day in the Remstal! There is also a nice after-work party in the evening at Gleisdorfer Platz in Winterbach, and for those interested in culture, the museum garden of the Winterbach local history museum and the radio and telecommunications museum in Fellbach are open to those interested in culture, along with many other museums.

Great opening concert

Great music plays an important role in our "Enjoyment in the Park". And we think the concert with "Foaie Verde" is the perfect start: the musicians bring a mixture of Romanian folklore, fast-paced Balkan sound and Bulgarian, Yugoslav and Turkish melodies to the stage. Experience unbridled energy and joie de vivre!

Culinary delights

Hiking and enjoyment - these two things are inseparable at the 121st German Hiking Day 2022 in the Remstal! Because the Remstal is a valley for connoisseurs: the vines for fine wines grow on its slopes, fruit and vegetable cultivation has a long tradition, and people enjoy Swabian cuisine and hospitality. We want to bring all this closer to you on our pleasure tours. Get to know the red and white wines of the area on wine tours, or hike to the bakery, where the tour ends with fresh bread and a quarter.

Sports & action

Have you ever hiked 30 kilometers or more? Your calves will burn and the sparkling final drink will fizz all the more! Our long-distance hikes take you over hill and dale, through vineyards, forests and meadows. If you keep up, you can complete the 215 km long Remstal-Weg in six stages! You can also gain a fair amount of altitude on Stäffelestouren in Stuttgart, and for anyone who likes to combine hiking and cycling, our “Bike&Hike” program is just the right thing: by bike, it’s between 25 and 40 kilometers to the starting points of the circular hiking tours (5th up to 8 kilometers in length) - you need your own roadworthy bike and a helmet for this.

All of the start and end points of the RemstalWeg are easily accessible by public transport, so you can start right from the front door or hotel door without luggage.
