Take a break from city life at EselsmĂĽhle in Musberg

Hi guys! If you need a little break from the city, I know just the perfect hideaway spot: The EselsmĂĽhle (Donkey Mill) in Musberg!

This is truly a wonderful place, especially for families. The mill has existed for more than 600 years. It has provided food for the people in the area ever since. Today, the EselsmĂĽhle still follows the principles of locally produced, sustainable groceries.

When you follow the street that leads from the parking area to the mill, you will be greeted by some of the furry inhabitants: sheep, goats or – as the name of the mill suggests – donkeys.

Taking the railway through Killesbergpark in Stuttgart

Hi guys! There is nothing better than reviving childhood memories, is there? When I was a child, my grandma took me to Killesbergpark in Stuttgart every summer  and I loved riding the tiny railway they have up there. And a little while ago, I totally felt like taking that train again!

Wilhema Stuttgart – a fun day at the zoo

Hi guys! Ok, I have to admit, I made the first mistake in the headline. DON’T call the zoo in Stuttgart a zoo, it’s the WILHELMA! People in Stuttgart are very proud of their zo… excuse me, Wilhelma – because it’s not simply a regular zoo. The Wilhelma is a botanical and zoological garden and belongs to the national heritage of Baden-WĂĽrttemberg. The park and the buildings look back on a very interesting history.
