1Esslingen, Germany

One of southwest Germany’s many half-timbered towns, Esslingen secured its position as a major trading center by building two bridges over the Neckar River,

…making it an obvious crossing point for medieval traders. More than 200 timber-framed buildings from the 13th to 16th centuries lie in Esslingen’s Old Town, lining its scenic canals and surrounding the market square.
