Have a Break, Go to the Durlacher Turmberg

My office is in Dulach, near the Durlacher Turmberg. It is a small hill above the medieval city of Durlach with an old tower above it. I like to go there in the lunch break or after work, because it is so nice there and it is so near.

It is the perfect place to go in the break and to have some sun, fresh air and new inspirations. It is the best thing of working in Durlach! And because it is a hill, it is a great place to have some physical training in the break. 100 high metres are not bad for the breaks. Especially when I choose the steep way with the steps!

But that is not the only one nice way. There are some other ways, so you can see the wine yards and the forest from the south. I think that this is the most beautiful way to go there.

The most special thing is of course the magnificent view from the top of the tower. When the weather is nice and it is a little windy, then the view goes as far as the Bergstr, the Weinstr, Kraichgau, Rhine River Valley, Black Forest and even Vosges and Taunus. From there you can see even the cathedral of Strasbourg and the skyscrapers of Frankfurt.

Well, today was not such day, but the view was still great.

Of course, you can visit Durlacher Turmberg as a tourist as well. Then, when you are on the top, be sure to check the restaurant and drink some nice wine form the wine yards on the hill. I don’t like to say this, but if you are lazy to climb the hill, you can always take the cable car.
