We hiked up to the Burg, via the path through the vineyards, rather than scaling the steps. This was easier for my wife, who struggles with long vertical climbs. Once we got to the top, the views of Esslingen below, we very nice.

I fell in love with Esslingen and even more when I had a gorgeous view of it and its vineyards when taking the steps up, We visited early December and the Chriskindlmarkt below looked so cool from above..

A nice stop if you are Esslingen. It’s a good walk to the top and a nice view of the city once you reach the top.
