Cultural Highlights and City Breaks
Even after a successful shopping trip there is a lot to discover in and around Metzingen. The historical town is as original and traditional as the OUTLETCITY is future-oriented. Its welcoming atmosphere is probably largely down to its long history of winemaking. Appropriately, the town’s seven wine presses are its most famous landmark. 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. The region around Metzingen is dominated by viticulture and agriculture. At the Viticulture Museum and the Fruit-growing Museum, visitors can find out more about both subjects. 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. But Metzingen is not only surrounded by charming countryside – there are also a number of interesting towns and cities that are ideal for days out.
