One of the main reasons for visiting Malsch is that it offers almost immediate access to the higher Black Forest area, somewhere that Germans and overseas visitors flock to for its natural beauty. The Black Forest extends southwards all the way down to the Swiss border.
Winemaking is also a popular activity in the wider region. The Rhine Valley immediately to the west of Malsch is famous for aromatic white wine, such as Riesling. In Malsch itself, the municipal life centres on the city hall, which stages occasional events and exhibitions from time to time.
Malsch has an interesting Mill Museum located in the middle of the town on Hauptstraße. It is remarkable because of the age of the milling equipment on show, some of which dates back many centuries.
Another place of interest is the so-called model building, designed and constructed in the ideas espoused by Rudolf Steiner, the famous social reformer and architect. It is possible to book guided tours of this building. However, note that only parties of five or more are catered to.
As a starting point for a touring holiday in a motorhome, Malsch is ideal because it means beginning in what might be referred to as the real Germany. The area has several high-quality camping facilities that are geared up for camper vans.
In addition to the town's eateries, there are a good number of supermarkets to buy your provisions before striking out on the open road. These tend to be clustered to the north of the town, close to the Autobahn.
Although there are some private airstrips close to Malsch, most visitors will arrive under their own steam by car or via Stuttgart Airport. Therefore, it is worth noting that a transfer from Stuttgart to Malsch involves a 55-mile journey, typically taking over an hour.
There's an outdoor pool in Malsch, but it is only open in the summer months. At other times of the year, sporty people should visit the town's Sportpark, which has indoor facilities for tennis, badminton and so on.
