Bürgermeister AltenbergerDear citizens,
dear guests,

welcome to the website of the community of Kernen.

With our internet-site we want to facilitate access to useful information and to anything worth knowing about Kernen in a progressive and comfortable way. If you should need advice or further information the staff of the town hall in Rommelshausen as well as in the administration building in Stetten will be pleased to assist you.

Kernen in the Rems Valley - at the same time gate to the Rems Valley - has to offer its guests lots of interesting things worth seeing: The charming landscape and the good wine are accompanied by refined gastronomy. At all seasons a large variety of inns, restaurants, hotels and local wine bars tempt prospective guests to enter their premises.

During your visit you should not miss our informative vineyard path as well as an ascent to the Y-Castle, visits to the Mansion of Stetten (Schloss Stetten), the winepress in Stetten (Glocken-kelter), the "Villa rustica" (Roman ruins) or the two Protestant churches.

We also recommend the use of our public facilities: the indoor swimming-pool in Rommelshausen, the outdoor swimming-pool in Stetten as well as the libraries in both parts of the community. You can distance yourself easily from the hectic rush of Stuttgart by going for extensive, refreshing walks on well-kept paths in the countryside of Kernen. Enjoy the shade and the peacefulness of the Schurwald (forest area), the amplitude of blossoms of cherry and apple trees in our orchards or the sunny vineyards.

The creativity and the commitment of the members of numerous clubs and organisations contribute to the lively cultural and social life of our community. The local economy, trade and industry offer "short distances" on your shopping tour as well as a great variety of services.

Enjoy the discovery of our community. Simply come round and visit us. We are looking forward to you.

Stefan Altenberger
