Burg Hohenstaufen

Reviewed By thamfamily - Goppingen, Germany

Enjoy the Panorama of the central Schwäbische Alb. On a clear day you can see to Stuttgart and even the Black forest. Its a short walk up from the village of Hohenstaufen with its historic church. The small restaurant Himmel und Erde on the top of the Hohenstaufen offers a good selection of local food and drinks. A perfect place! Check the opening hours before you hike up.

Marklin Museum

Reviewed By phebert - London, United Kingdom

We were pretty disappointed in this 'museum' which turns out to be a large Marklin model train store with some train layouts. There are a couple of walls of display cases containing almost exclusively old model trains. Where are the old model boats and cars? Also, though most items are labelled only a handful of the labels are in English as well as German. Yes - I know this is Germany but English is the most widely spoken second language in the world and I'm sure this 'museum' gets lots of foreign visitors.

Wallfahrtskirche Ave Maria

Reviewed By bbu2707 - Goppingen, Germany

Ein ganz besonderer Ort zur Besinnung, Entspannung und Meditation.
Voraussetzung ist allerdings dass man die Kirche nicht an einem Wochenende und schon gar nicht an einem Feiertag besucht, da ist sie nämlich völlig überlaufen.

Stadtisches Museum im Storchen

Reviewed By Horst-JohannesF - Ludwigsburg, Germany

Nach 3jährigem Umbau wurde das Mueum im Jahr 2015 wieder eröffnet. Es ist das älteste Fachwerkhaus in Göppingen. Erbaut wurde es von einem Freiherrn von Liebenstein.
Jetzt ist es sehr modern , sogar mit einem Aufzug bis ins erste Dachgeschoß.
In den neuen Räumen sind stadtgeschichtliche Sammlungen untergebracht.
Auch Glassammlungen der ehemaligen Glashütte Gralglas. In den 50er und 60er Jahren gehörten Gläser aus Göppingen zu Repräsentationsobjekten im Bonner Kanzleramt.

Kunsthalle

Reviewed By Stefan G - Lucerne, Switzerland

We visited the coffee bar for a quick break. Coffee with croissant and water for below 4€ sounds quite good.
The atmosphere in the evening however was relatively uncomfortable. Very bright light installation which may be supposed to be art and the extremely high cealing made it uncomfortable.
We enjoyed the view to the christmas market, the good service but not the location.
