Join us on a virtual tour of our luxurious Area Schwenkel
Area Schwenkel tells its own story through its architecture: This spot embodies the center of the textile industry it served as in Metzingen for generations.
The individual cuboidal buildings symbolize a collection of fabrics - the fashionable labels of Outletcity Metzingen. Traditional patterns like herringbone and pinstripe tie the whole area together by giving the location a common theme.

Back then: the booming glovemaking industry
Did you know that in the 1920s, young jobseekers came to Metzingen from the neighboring towns and villages to learn the art of glovemaking? They brought what they learned about leatherworking back to their hometowns. This was how so many glove factories were built in Neuhausen. The Schwenkel brothers learned their trade in the respected glove factory belonging to A. Gänsslen jr. and opened their own leather factory in Reutlinger Straße. For seventy years at Area Schwenkel, sewing machines rattled on the same location that is now named after the brothers. The building was demolished when the company closed its doors. Today, the location has a gotten a new polish that would be at home even in the Golden Twenties!
