Esslingen, Germany

Esslingen has a population of 92,000 and is situated southeast of Stuttgart at the river Neckar. It is known not only for its beautiful landscape but also for its historic old town with four important gothic churches, famous for their wonderful medieval stained glass windows. Although 60s/70s urban planning caused several damage in the old town, Esslingen is still an interesting destination when you´re in the region.
