Only an hour's train ride or drive from Stuttgart, Aalen is located on the eastern edge of the Swabian Alb. Thermal baths, tunnels, a castle and the Roman UNESCO World Heritage Site Limes - Aalen's major attractions can be summed up with these. In the valley, the city breathes millennia of cultural history. And all around, on the slopes of the UNESCO Swabian Alb Geopark, hundreds of kilometers of bike paths lure visitors with picture-book panoramas. But also the winding alleys of the historic city center and the oldest half-timbered facade in the Radgasse captivate with their charm and are definitely worth a visit. During a guided tour through the old town, you can be introduced to Aalen's past. Maybe you will even meet the Aalen spy or night watchman.
