Even though the area has been settled since the Iron Age, sadly many of you might never have heard of it. Great thing the internet has, isn’t it?
It’s not like you’ll be saying “Oh, goodness not another museum,” because there is only one; the obligatory Heimatmuseum, or Local History Museum. It’s a really nifty museum complex with exhibits in an old barn, an old vicarage, and washhouse. The only thing is, you better plan for this museum experience since it’s only open the 1st Sunday of the month from 2pm-6pm.
March — Top Areas Of Interest
And there’s the only star/sky observatory in the Rhine Valley — which is open on the second Tuesday of the month.
At least that’s a little more often than the annual guided cycling run on the second Sunday of September and the Christmas Market.
But, I’m not complaining! There’s still a bit more to do in March so I won’t have time.
The oldest church in March is the Catholic St. Georg. It was established way back in the mid-8th century, but its tower didn’t come along for another eight hundred years. On the inside take notice of the blended Gothic and Baroque style nave.
I know that sure makes the 18th century St. Pankratiuskirche seem like a mere baby. The Evangelical Martin Luther Church (also 18th century) was once the town’s Catholic St. Gallus Church.
A century later (1820 to be exact) the Schlosspark von Hugstetten (and its English Gardens) came along. It’s a nice place to take a stroll with the kids or find a little romance with your other half.
March might not be a super-disco going town with loads of nightlife. After all, this isn’t Berlin or Munich. But, aren’t you glad you marched through March; or at least clicked on this web page?
