Other highlights in Metzingen that are well worth a visit include the late Gothic St. Martin’s Church and the Old Town Hall. Visitors constantly move in an exciting contrast between small country town idyll and cosmopolitan shopping flair.

Both museums offer an interesting and informative insight into the history of wine and fruit-growing as well as the traditional crafts associated with them.
