Waiblingen

25th May 2014

Waiblingen is a town situated at the entrance to the Valley of the River Rems ( the Remstal) in Stuttgart region.

Waiblingen is able to look back on a long tradition. Early historical findings give evidence of a settlement here already in the Stone Age.
The location of Waiblingen is very closely associated with the history of the Roman Emperors of German Nation in the Early - and High Middle Ages. 
There are a lot of famous landmarks here:

1. High Watchtower  was probably erected at the end of the 12th century and is actually older than city walls. 
Watchtower



























2. St. Michaels' Church and the Nunnery Chapel.

The outer churchyard area surrounded by the Schalenturm ( Shell Tower) 1463 include the late Gothic' St. Michael's Church erected at the end of the 15th century as well as the late Gothic Nunnery Chapel, a two storey chapel presumably intended as the a tomb repository.
