Tradition und Trade
The town’s most famous landmark is depicted through its historical seven winepresses on the Kelternplatz. Metzingen is described as the 'Town of the Seven Winepresses' due to this worldwide and unique attraction. The seven winepresses and the surrounding area come together to form an extremely charming backdrop for markets, festivals and cultural events.
Metzingen also has some very lovely, old squares (Martinskirchplatz, Bahnhofsplatz, Konrad-Adenauer-Platz, Markt- and Rathausplatz) and numerous restored historic streets inviting you for a comfortable stroll.
Of course, 'shopping' has top priority in Metzingen. Factory production is anchored in the history of the town and is known as 'a paradise for bargain hunters', Metzingen is famous far past the county lines as a so-called bargain paradise. In the meantime there are more than 50 high quality factory outlet stores located within the city limits, mostly near the city center. Retail sales and culinary pleasures are offered by a number of businesses in the inner city.
