Weissenburg Park is a local treasure that is often missed out on by tourists. The history of the park begins centuries ago when it was the site of an ancient castle. Although not a single trace of the castle remains, the park continues to be called Weissenburg, or the White Castle, as an homage to its origins. Over the years, the park has been transformed from a private estate to a public space with winding trails and sprawling playgrounds for all to enjoy. The neoclassical tea house and marble hall remain as memorials to the once grand estate that flourished here, enchantingly beautiful with Rococo and Art Noveau embellishments that attract the eye. The observation deck offers a spell-binding view over Stuttgart-South, a rare treat that you are not likely to experience elsewhere. Before heading back, be sure to stop by the Reinhold Nägele memorial to pay your respects.

Birkenkopf is a tall hill which is located in the beautiful neighborhood of Wangen. This artificial hill was created post World War II with the rubble of the city ruins as a memorial for the locals who lost their lives. The hilltop is adorned with a cross that is a symbol of peace and happiness for the city's future. The hill also has some ruins from the war that are interesting to look at. A visit to this hill is like paying homage to the martyrs of the city. A few ruins of the war are still intact and are worth a look.
