Local history museum in Plieningen
In the historic tithe barn, the local history museum tells the history of the Stuttgart districts of Plieningen and Birkach. The museum stages six characteristic rooms: The "fields" and the barn are all about agriculture - the Filderkraut shaped Plieningen and made it famous. The historic Schad cap maker is at the center of the “workshop”, which describes the often hard working life in the villages. Plieningen and Birkach were known for their many inns and here in the museum you will find students from Hohenheim as well as traditional clubs. You can sit down in the "town hall" and browse through documents, for example on the history of the incorporations. The "kitchen" shows a variety of historical kitchen appliances and presents forgotten recipes. The growth of the city districts in the 20th century is shown by the view through a window of the "vertical village" Asemwald, which has shaped the city silhouette of Stuttgart since 1971 with three characteristic high-rise buildings.
