Oberderdingen is a quaint town full of gorgeous vineyards in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
It is one of the stops and our point of departure on the Waldensian-Huguenot cultural route, which we followed in the reverse direction through this Swabian part of Germany through to Switzerland.
Oberderdingen and the surrounding area boasts 120 acres of vineyards from seven wineries which cerate 100 types wine. If you’re a lover of Riesling, Oberderdingen is your place as it is the most typical wine variety grown and produced in this region.
In 1227, the first recorded wine developed in Oberderdingen was made, meaning they’ve been honing their craft for centuries! The wineries in the area are open on Sundays, a rarity in Germany, and host several wine festivals per year.
The area is also famous for its rich cultural heritage and settlement by the Waldensians. Several museums and churches display the cultural heritage left by these religious refugees, originally from Lyon, France. The region is also known for its picturesque hiking trails, zoos, farms, llama trekking, spa vacations, and theme parks.
