Rottweil, the oldest town in Baden-Württemberg, is a popular destination for those interested in culture and nature. The district town is the centre of the surrounding communities. Since the Staufer period, it has been an imperial city all throughout the roman empire.
The historic old town with its luxuriously decorated town houses amazes visitors. A walk through the city centre reveals a multitude of different buildings and monuments. A special highlight is the tower that towers over the centre.
The visitor platform is 232 metres high. This makes it the highest publicly accessible visitor platform in the country. The panoramic view of the city and the surrounding countryside is truly impressive.
A visit to the "World of Crystals" museum is also impressive. This museum is located only 5 km from Rottweil in Dietlingen. Some of the crystals on display there are over 4 metres high.
Situated directly on the Neckar River, Rottweil is right between Stuttgart and Lake Constance. A trip to Lake Constance in a camper van is therefore really recommendable. The drive only takes an hour.
Lake Constance is one of the largest lakes in the Alpine foothills. Especially in summer, the lake is a popular bathing destination. The cycle path leads once around the lake and is a total of 260 km long.
In the immediate vicinity of Rottweil are the towns of Oberndorf am Neckar, Balingen and Schramberg. Excursions to these towns are also worthwhile. Schramberg lies directly in the Black Forest and has some excellent hiking trails.
The city has an average maximum temperature of 15 degrees Celsius. This makes it one of the warmest regions in the Federal Republic. However, the weather here is quite changeable. In winter it gets quite cold and even in summer it is rarely really hot.
The best time for a holiday with a campervan is from June to September. Winter sports enthusiasts arrive in December and January. Especially at the higher altitudes there is now a lot of snow.
With a maximum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, June is the warmest month of the year. Now you can expect 8 hours of sunshine per day. The camping season begins in May, when there is no more frost at night.
The months between September and March are often too cold for an overnight stay in a campervan. In January, temperatures range from 0 to 5 degrees Celsius. The region is then a popular skiing area.
Rain falls quite evenly throughout the year. On average, you have to expect around 12 to 14 rainy days per month. With 8 rainy days, September is the driest month of the year.
In June there are 11 days of rain. Since the weather in the city is quite changeable, it is worthwhile to always have an umbrella handy. It is also advantageous if the awning of the campervan has a good water column.
The entire city centre of Rottweil is a sight to behold. The tower is one of the city's biggest attractions. The hiking trails in the surrounding area offer plenty of variety and great views.
This huge observation tower was built as a test tower for express lifts by the Thyssenkrupp company. Construction took just under four years and was completed in 2017. The test shaft is 275 metres long.
Since its construction, the tower has received numerous architecture and design awards, as it is unique in its construction. Among other things, it is the only tower that can be artificially vibrated to simulate wind loads.
Another feature is the textile cladding. Visually, the tower is reminiscent of a huge screw. A public visitor's platform was created so that the residents could become familiar with the eye-catching project.
In this way, the company created an incentive to visit Rottweil. A separate infrastructure was created for the visitors. The campervan can therefore be parked directly on one of the tower's parking spaces.
The 125-square-metre platform can accommodate 200 visitors at a time. In good weather conditions, the view reaches as far as the Swiss Alps. With binoculars, a view of over 200 km is possible.
Lemberg also has an excellent view to offer. At 1015 metres, it is the highest mountain in the Swabian Alb. There is a steel observation tower at the top of the mountain. On a clear day, visitors can see as far as the Alps.
Numerous great hiking trails lead up the mountain. The Nordrand hiking trail starts one kilometre north of Gosheim. The camper van can be parked at the signposted hikers' car park. The ascent takes about an hour.
The historic old town with its stately houses and fountains makes a great backdrop for a tour. Life pulsates here not only on festive days. The town exudes a refined flair.
There are countless cafés and shops in the small alleyways. Above all, the magnificent churches, the Gothic towers and the old museums are real eye-catchers. A visit to the colourful weekly market is a real pleasure.
There is a large selection of campsites in the region. In addition, there is a camping site in Rottweil just for campervans.
This site is ideal for trips to the city centre and the ThyssenKrupp Tower. It is located directly on a main road and is therefore easy to find. Electricity for the campervan costs 3 euros for 24 hours and supply and disposal are free.
This simple site is not necessarily suitable for a longer stay. However, the space available is sufficient for a large campervan with an awning. The centre can be reached on foot in 30 minutes.
The site is suitable for a campervan for a longer period of time. It is located directly at the reservoir and offers a great view. The owner is very friendly and helpful.
The sanitary facilities are modern and clean, hot water is charged extra. The Wi-Fi on the site works really well. After swimming, you can have a delicious meal in the Italian restaurant.
If you are looking for a quiet place, you will find it here. The site is located in a beautiful valley. Alpirsbach is only 5 minutes away by bike. In general, it is worth renting a bike in the area, the paths are perfect for cycling.
The sanitary facilities are very clean and there is even a hairdryer. The staff is very relaxed and you can take your time even on the day of departure. You can feel at home with your camper van at this idyllic campsite.
Bike rental Tip: You can rent very modern bikes at the bike rental Martin E-Bike and more in Niedereschach.
By car/camper van: Rottweil is easily accessible by car or camper van via three main roads. The B27 comes from Stuttgart, the B14 from Herrenberg and the B 462 from Schramberg.
By plane: The nearest international airport is in Stuttgart. The distance is 85 kilometres. By campervan, the journey to Rottweil takes about one hour.
The historic town centre, the ThyssenKrupp Tower and the picturesque landscape with mountains and reservoirs make the town a worthwhile destination. You should arrive by campervan between June and September. The campsites in the region are very clean and have a good atmosphere.
