Hotels in and around Fellbach
Fellbach is a medium-sized town to the northeast of Stuttgart, between Bad Cannstatt and Waiblingen. There is a small choice of medium budget hotels in Fellbach itself, with more mid- to upper-range accommodation in Bad Cannstatt, and the full choice of central Stuttgart’s hotels, hostels and B&Bs a 12-minute ride on the S-Bahn away.
F3 Familien und Freizeitbad
Conveniently situated close to the parks, plazas and museums of Stuttgart’s city centre, Fellbach itself also has a number of attractions for the young and young at heart. F3 Familien und Freizeitbad is a sprawling water park with indoor and outdoor pools, water slides, a whirlpool and sauna. Eight different saunas, with a range of soothing herbal infusions, offer a chance to relax after hours of hurtling down the see-through slide or the drop slide that starts with a countdown trapdoor. There’s also a 25-metre training pool, diving board and a teaching pool, supplemented in summer by a 50-metre outdoor pool, promising more than enough to keep a family busy. Check their events page before you go if you want to catch one of the laser shows.
TobiDu is an indoor children’s adventure playground with jungle gyms, slides and a mini go-kart circuit as well as a range of trampolines and inflatables to get the little ones bouncing. There is an animal-themed climbing wall, a mini-football area and a chance to do some face-painting. Visit on Mondays for free admission to groups with grandparents, and look out for the happy hour, offering half-price admission to all youngsters.
Kappelberg is a hilltop site just south of Fellbach, offering grand views of the vineyards and greenery of the Neckar Valley region. There is a hilltop Panorama Restaurant, and the nearby Naturfreunde Fellbach is a centre for scenic walks around the greater Stuttgart region, including a Roman loop trail and a hike through the Mainhardter Forest. Take a pleasant stroll south, stopping for a snifter in the little vineyard of Weingut Diehl, and continue to the pretty little town of Uhlbach to find the Weinbaumuseum, a museum of the region’s wine-making traditions that date back to Roman times.
