I can't wait to see Esslingen photos. Such a great town and only 10 minutes train journey.

I live in Kornwestheim and it is a little boring, the most exciting thing is the train station because it means you get to go to Stuttgart or Ludwigsburg!

Thats right, the most important thing in Kornwestheim ist the S-Bahnstation, to get to Stuttgart or Ludwigsburg. You will see pictures of Esslingen soon

Esslingen

Now eyes on "Esslingen am Neckar", a town with 90.000 inh. located at the southeastern boarder of Stuttgart, 10 kilometers from the city of Stuttgart. The old "Reichsstadt" Esslingen is a miniversion of Stuttgart, highindustrial, but also lovely an nice topography. From the sotheastern Stuttgarter district Obertürkheim, to the northern Esslinger district Mettingen and up to downtown Esslingen you can take the trolleybus!

First view, the main church Sankt Dionys

Fist time viewing yet another splendid collection of yours, and Benztown (hopefully, this was the town that inspired the Mercedes Benz brand) looks charming as an long-established community near Stuttgart, with those hillside houses providing a wealth of beauty and delight for tourists and locals alike. I especially like the recurring themes of low-floored buildings that provide easy access for shops, restaurants, and apartments, as well as great pedestrian streets that embody the spirit of the community... as for your attractions, the Esslinger Burg may look low-key for a start as a fortress (given the simple design of one of its watchtowers), but the gardens and views from it truly make me want to take a stroll there, especially with the small stone steps that provide great views of the town from its balcony. The hillside location also made it an important viewing point for soldiers at the time; today, with the many stairs and fountains that adorn the castle grounds, I must say that it could be a popular place to hold weddings, special events, or just for a stroll. Indeed, a town may not need a lot of tall glass towers to make a city well-loved and popular; the castle and the town's accessible feel sure makes me calm and at ease taking photos of many of its structures.

To add, Ludwisburg looks much more modern and alive, with all the shops, cyclists, and cafes that line the town streets... I know it looks more built up in some way than Benztown, but I believe that it is a great place to fill up and shop for souvenirs before climbing the Esslinger Burg in the process.

Great work again, my friend!
