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 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,
One-way trip: see Ticket Fares

From Wilhema to Marbach please see the de­scrip­tion of the “Marbach Route”.

After Marbach we moor in Benningen behind the bridge house, before we con­tinue after the Pleidels­heim lock to the pier Klein-Ingers­heim. This is where the rock gardens start. Klein-Ingers­heim achieved a high degree of pop­u­lari­ty in the “whole Ländle” through the tele­vision series “Die Kirche bleibt im Dorf”.
We con­tinue to the pier Mundels­heim, with its “Käs­berg” – you can enjoy the beautiful Neckar bend to Hessig­heim.

Route de­scrip­tion from Hessig­heim towards Besig­heim:
After leaving the Hessig­heimer lock behind us, we reach the pier Felsen­gärten, (Rock Gardens). From there it is not far to the Felsen­garten­kelle­rei, (a well-known winery). Here you will find “wines in an ex­traor­di­nary variety in all quality levels and flavours”. The “Hessig­heimer Rock Gardens” are part of the “Neckar­becken nature reserve” and are among the most im­por­tant geotopes in Germany. The hiking trails offer a wonder­ful view of the Neckar loops. We leave the rock gardens behind us and reach the final pier at Besig­heim. Where the Enz flows into the Neckar river, the medie­val town of Besig­heim is surrounded by fertile vine­yards. In 2010 the MDR declared the city the most beauti­ful wine town in Germany. The B Line ends in Marbach. (The C Line: in the opposite direc­tion.)
