Nersingen — Tranquil Town For Fans Of The Fine Arts

Now, most places in this REALLY popular federal state usually have an over abundance of things to see, do, and experience. So, you might be wondering why there isn’t all that much to do in Nersingen.

Now, that doesn’t mean for an instant that you should avoid Nersingen. No, it’s really conveniently located between the historic (and sightseeing filled) towns of Elchingen and Neu-Ulm. So, by staying here you’re right smack in the middle of it all.

But what to see? OK, like in most German towns, churches are some of the attractions. Nersingen has three that are worth the effort to see. There’s the church of St. Johann Baptist, the church of St. Dionysius, and found on the Dorfstraße is the good old church of St. Nikolaus.

As grand as these churches are, the biggest (biggest, BIGGEST) attraction to Nersingen is the Museum für Bildende Kunst. The what? Simply translated, it’s the Museum of Fine Arts. Found on Alte Landstr. 1A in the village of Oberfalheim, this museum is a treasure trove of beautiful artwork; and even better: admission is free! (Note: The museum is only open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at the time of this writing.)

Another sight, one that you’ll want to photograph, is the fountain in front of the Town Hall. With its sculptures and the way it’s been built, I find it quite befitting with the Museum of Fine Arts.

That’s about it in the sightseeing department of Nersingen, unless you also add in the area of the Roman Fort, that was abandoned in 80 A.D. And if you think that’s old, the Romans weren’t the first to live here — there were artifacts found here dating back to the Bronze Age!

But, this is Swabia, so your stay here in Nersingen isn’t quite done yet. You still have some paths to walk, trails to bike, tennis to play, horseback riding to do, and playgrounds to let the kids run around.

Come to think of it, it’d be a cold day in Hell before you’d run out of things to see & do Nersingen!
