Carriage Tour of the Town

In cooperation with the horse-drawn carriage operator Uwe Link we can offer tours in a horse-drawn carriage or covered wagon! Get to know our lovely little town from a completely different angle. Hear all about Messkirch's history during a pleasant ride through its winding alleyways! Drive through the castle park with its 300 lime trees as the princes used to do, or follow in Heidegger's footsteps on his "Country Path" and visit the so-called "Heidegger Bench".



  • This unusual tour begins on Adlerplatz, the square in the heart of Messkirch's historical town centre, and takes you from there through Grabenbachstraße, Jahnstraße and Fuchsgasse to Dr. Conrad-Gröber-Straße. From here you follow the old town wall to Stockacher Straße, past the Herz-Jesu-Heim to Messkirch Castle. Enjoy the unique ambience of the first quadrangular Renaissance complex north of the Alps!

    From the castle you continue into the town centre. Its narrow alleyways eventually lead you to Hauptstraße, Messkirch's former trunk road. You pass the so-called "Marktbrückle" (Market Bridge) with the oldest surviving half-timbered house, the Town Hall and the town fountain. After a short stop you continue along Conradin-Kreutzer-Straße past the Heilandskirche (Church of our Saviour) to the Conradin Kreutzer School. From there you go back to Adlerplatz via Bahnhofsstraße and proceed to the Court Garten (Hofgarten). Enjoy a drive through the beautiful park with its 300 lime trees.
    The tour continues in the direction of Messkirch's schools complex and along Heidegger's Country Path to the famous Heidegger Bench, from where there's a wonderful view over the district of Schnerkingen. From here you return to Adlerplatz, where this carriage tour of Messkirch ends.

    During the 90-minute drive our town guide will regale you with lots of interesting and entertaining information about the history and culture of our little town.
