In Stuttgart with kids

Take a break from city life at Eselsmühle in Musberg

Hi guys! If you need a little break from the city, I know just the perfect hideaway spot: The Eselsmühle (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 Eselsmühle 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.

They have a wonderful café with homemade cakes! I can’t even tell you which one my favorite is because all of them are soooo gooood! Smiley

At Eselsmühle, even the calories are in ecstasy (that’s what’s written on the plate Smiley). I love to sit outside in the summer…

…but they also have a very cozy café inside which I prefer in the colder months:

Next to the café there is the shop. They sell cute home deco stuff and organic groceries like vegetables, homemade bread, cheese and much more.

Plus, there is a small museum that exhibits stones and fossils.

Time seems to stand still at Eselsmühle. I went there recently with my godchild and for little kids, the animals are a highlight!
