Aalbaeumle Aussichtsturm

Drove out of Aalen as far as the thermal Springs (Ramada Hotel). Steady walk with family and pram up the gravel roads. Excellent cafe with outside tables, so we had a local snack before climbing up the observation tower. Great views.

Limesmuseum

Reviewed By Asta365 - Kent, Texas

The Limes Museum provides a good overview of the Roman Limes defensive system. Though not chock-a-block filled with relics, there are a good number of period items on display. Pictures taken from Trajan's Column in Rome are used to excellent effect to explain a Roman legionary's service from enlistment to discharge. Several depictions of the Limes, both local topography of the Aalen section as well as the entire system, provide excellent context. A couple of notable items in the collection include a legionary's discharge papers (bronze actually), an excellent set of tin soldiers depicting camp life in a expansive diorama, and a very well executed original altar to Mitra. Outside the museum, one can see a full scale replica of a cross-section of a cavalry barracks, foundations for the main hall of the camp, and original and replica altars, gravestones, and other Roman markers. The audio guide is a must if you are not fluent in German. Plenty of parking is available outside the museum. I recommend walking to the small Altstadt for lunch or walking up the hill from the museum to a nice public park on the other side of the Stadthalle.

Limes-Therme

Reviewed By gramasherry - Shelby, Michigan

The Limes- therme is awsome. The pools large and well maintained. Both indoor and outdoor pools provide plenty of space for familys, couples and solos.
The cafe has great food with a lovely view of the city.
Be sure to have a treatment with Trish she is the greatest.
I especialy enjoyed the Chocolate /coffee massage.

Alte Rathaus

Reviewed By anachoretin - Moskau

Нарядное фахверковое здание в швабском стиле. Находится в центре города, на Рыночной площади, так что пройти мимо невозможно.
У ратуши интересная история: она была построена в XVI веке в совсем другом месте. В 70-х годах нашего столетия в Плохингене проводили масштабную перепланировку старого центра, и ратушу решили снести или переместить. Жители города выступили за перенос и собрали денег на это мероприятие. Молодцы!

Besucherbergwerk Tiefer Stollen

Reviewed By sanCyprus - Cyprus

A nice attraction in the nearby of city of Aalen. It can be reached easily with a bus in case you don't have a car. Interresting and historical place for the region of Aalen. Although I had young children with me I think from teenagers and above is even more interresting...Actually is a closed mine you can visit and learn more about it. The whole tour that offered takes about 1,5 hours, there is also a small kiosk and restaurant nearby that I did not visit..There is an entrance fee but I think it worths it..Have in mind to wear something a bit warm as in the mine (400m below the surface) has about 0 degrees..

Urweltmuseum Aalen

Reviewed By LOCIRA - Abbots Langley, United Kingdom

The museum is unfortunately a bit tired by now and I believe people talk about closing it. It is however in a brilliant location in the centre of Aalen with the "Spion" on the roof. Small enough to keep also younger kids focussed and not getting bored.

Alter Hobel

Reviewed By hexi2014 - Aalen, Germany

Mir gefällt das gemütliche Alt-Aalener Lokal besonders wegen seiner Lage in der Fußgängerzone. Die kleinen schnuckligen Gassen in der Innenstadt rund um den Alten Hobel laden im Sommer zum Draussensitzen ein. Hier trifft sich alt und jung,locker und gelassen zum Feierabendbier. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

IRISH PUB COBAN'S

Reviewed By Dominik S

Zu Beginn der EM 2016 war ich und ein paar Freunde in diesem Lokal. Man bekommt so gut wie alle gängigen Getränke serviert. Der Preis passt auch, da man in anderen Lokalen so ziemlich das gleiche zahlt. Allerdings ist es etwas eng, da das Lokal mit nur wenigen Besuchern schon ziemlich voll ist. Aber ansonsten kann man dieses Lokal auch nur weiterempfehlen.
