Marbach Route

Liner service from the pier Wilhelma to Mühl­grün, past the “Cann­statt Zucker­le” and “Mühl­häuser Steil­lagen” vine­yards and Max-Eyth-See, Stuttgart's largest lake and retreat. After­wards we go through the lock Hofen to the pier Mühl­hau­sen with view to the castle ruin Hofen. From there we pass the forest “Scilla” to Rems­eck.

One of the best wine lo­ca­tions in Württem­berg and the gem of the Cann­­statt vine­yards is the lo­ca­tion “Cann­statt Zuckerle”. The unusual name comes from the “Zuckerberg”, which stretches along the Neckar between Bad Cann­statt and Hofen. The nume­rous terraces supported by walls, which rise steeply and di­rectly from the Neckar, are char­ac­ter­istic of the Zucker­le. Slopes of up to 100 % are not un­common for this land­scape.

The muni­ci­pality of Rems­eck begins with the pier at Al­dingen, with the pier Neckar­­grö­­nin­­gen and the new city beach, where the Rems flows into the Neckar, and the adjoining make­shift jetty at Hoch­berg. Here begins the re­nat­u­ral­ized area “Zug­wiesen”, which is located opposite the pier Poppen­wei­ler. If you want to explore this area, we recommend you to take part in our offer “Roman­tic trip to the nature reserve Zug­wiesen”.

After the lock Poppen­weiler we're passing the “Ufer­wiesen”, past the Hohen­ecker out­door pool to the pier LB-Hohen­eck, with a short way to the spa Hoheneck. After we turned over in Bennin­gen we reach the Schiller town Marbach am Neckar. It is only a few minutes walk from the pier Marbach to the historic old town. The Museum of Modern Lit­era­ture and Schiller's birth­place are not the only high­lights of a tour through Marbach.

Duration: approx. 3 hours,
