Founded around 70 A.D., Günzburg is located where the river Günz encroaches the Danube. The town is obviously known for the modern attraction of Legoland, but also has so much more to offer its tourists.
So for anyone with kids (or for you, if you are one ;-), look out for Legoland Deutschland. I am sure you cannot miss it. Just as the name suggests, the theme park is the size of 25 football fields devoted just to Legos. Within the center of the theme park is Miniland. It features smaller scaled replicas of major European cities.
Besides, the town hosts many fairs and festivals throughout the year. From a simple weekly market to Guntiafest or even Günzbruger Nikolausmarkt around Christmas. There will probably be an added activity during your visit, contact tourist information if you would like to find out in advance.
This modern attraction is definitely a large tourist spot. There are buses widely available to transport you to and from the park. This is a great accessory to someone without other means of transportation.
If you are interested in a relaxing day or evening there are two movie theaters in Günzburg. Even in Germany, you can do “dinner and a movie.” There is also a bowling alley and billiards, miniature golf or other traditional recreations available in town. If you are a daredevil, skydiving is also an option.
The more cultural aspects are available by walking though the historic town center. There is an amazing church, the Church of Our Lady, that is nothing short of spectacular. And since the 15th century, every Tuesday morning offers an open air market on the Marktplatz.
There are numerous other historical buildings. With a history dating back almost 2,000 years, I am sure there is a lot to learn.
