Weilheim in Oberbayern, or Upper Bavaria, has it all as far as visitors are concerned. You don’t have to know what OB stands for, you simply have to get here and book yourself into one of those lovely hotels. Everything else is here, ready and waiting.
You absolutely, positively must start at the impressive City Wall. You truly have to hand it to those medieval architects. I suppose it never occurred to them to think small or think cost.
The same thoughts will overwhelm you as you gaze at the loveliness of the Marienplatz. The pedestrian zone is just perfect for you to stroll around and take it all in. Check out the exquisite detail of the Marian Column or the Marie Pillar. The area itself is lively with timbered buildings, local culture and quaint street cafes with welcoming facades.
Weilheim is famous for its historicity and you’ll agree wholeheartedly as you visit the Stadtmuseum, the St. Salvatore Church, and the St.Sebastian’s Church. They are all remarkably well-preserved and have alluring interiors that draw visitors as if these places have huge magnets and they all had iron filings for breakfast.
This is especially true of the Stadtmuseum housed in a splendid building of three floors and full of interesting exhibits, including pre-historic items to modern art.
If you have any interest at all to do with flying, Weilheim is the right destination for you. The Aeroclub at the Paterzell airfield will be a place you’d definitely want to visit for its affiliation to glider aerobatics.
Now, a public library is not something that warrants a place in most vacation itineraries, but if you want to quickly check your email or chat urgently, you could do so at the Stadtbücherei or State Library at the rate of more or less than an Euro for a half hour. Besides, you might get hooked on that Bavarian catalog. ;-)
