Germany is one of those places where history spans back to prehistoric times and much of its topography was created by melting ice of the last Ice Age.
What that means for us is that we, in today’s world, get to enjoy and appreciate a place like Pfullendorf in the beautiful state of Baden-Württemberg. The natural beauty of this place is further enhanced with its amazing history; and it has some really cool fun stuff to boot.
History lovers will appreciate that Pfullendorf lies along the Upper Swabian Baroque Route, which means you’re going to see the best of the best of 17th and 18th century period buildings.
To delve further back in history, Pfullendorf also lies along the Deutsche Fachwerkstraße or German Framework Route, a tourist route that highlights the most beautiful timber-framed buildings in Germany — some date all the way back to the 15th century.
Pfullendorf also lies along the St. James Way, the famous route traveled by godly pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain. When you’re here, know that you’re following in the footsteps of these pious pilgrims on the same cobblestone store-lined streets in the center of town.
For a great blend of culture and history, visit Castle and Kloster Salem. The castle itself was originally built in 1134 and now has an informative visitor’s program, as well as holding numerous concerts and art exhibits throughout the year.
History aside, Pfullendorf is also a really fun place packed with sports of all kinds. When the weather is warm, why not take a trip over to nearby Lake Constance. Better known as the Bodensee, here you can munch on yummy local regional cuisine, go camping, or just hang out sunbathing while scoping out the mystic Black Forest in the background.
Over at the Sea Park Linzgau, you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy for quite some time. There’s tennis, waterskiing, and a miniature golf course that is open between April to November. Come winter and you can enjoy some serious ice skating. The best part of it all? Entrance is free of charge. ;-)
Come to Pfullendorf anytime of the year. You’ll most certainly be happy you did, as you can experience all the fun and history you want, all in one place.
