Gaimersheim is an Upper Bavarian town that’s not really too famous for anything. I’m not trying to put this place down or anything; it is quite charming in a regular “get up, go to work, come home” kind of town.
It is historical, if anything, because people have called this place home from prehistoric days (grave hills were found). The Romans liked it here and built something cute known as Villa Rustica (a Roman estate house).
Other than the obligatory Heimatmuseum (Local History Museum) that details life in Gaimersheim, which is JUST north of gorgeous Ingolstadt, there isn’t all that much to do.

I’m sorry, I did forget about the Backhaus (Bake House) that is where some of Gaimersheim’s events take place.
Oh, and if you like art, then a visit to both the Parish Church Gaimersheim or the Church Lippertshofen (in one of the town’s three hamlets) would be a good idea. Old churches are always a great place to stop and see some amazing artwork. Part of the art’s charm is how much pious devotion the artists put into their work.
Wait, there’s still more…
For something more modern and popular with all of Gaimersheim’s residents is Aquamarin. This pool complex is the best for enjoying a day swimming or just sitting by the water. The kids are free to play in an area just for them; although they’ll love careening down the waterslide.
Parents might prefer a soak in Aquamarin’s mineral bath to soothe away tired achy muscles. Hey, if you’re a parent running around after little kids, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about!
Of course you can always tire the little ones out by getting them involved in a game of tennis, bowling, or just hiking around the Upper Bavarian landscape. Wait, that might make the grown-ups just as tired.
I confess I was wrong… With all that stuff on offer, it’s well worth (both time and money) to spend a night (or two) here in Gaimersheim. Plus, you can stop in a Upper Bavarian beer garden before heading off to bed.
