Aichach is proof that you don’t have to travel to a big city in order to see Germany. With only 21,000 people, this town in Bavaria not only has great architecture but also great food as well.
When you are standing in the center of the town, you are going to be able to see the Town Hall. This building is impressively built. Since it was built, it has burnt down several times, but the last rebuild of it was in 1704.
There are two gates that you can’t miss when you make it to Aichach — the Unteres Tor (Lower Gate) and the Oberes Tor (Upper Gate). These impressive structures date back to the 12th century, with additions added later. They helped to protect the city from the invaders in the following centuries.
Anyone who is interested in archaeology or ancient cultures should take a look around the Wittelsbacher Museum. Located in the City Tower, it’ll show you artifacts dating back to the time of the Romans.
Travelers who love royalty need to put the Sisi Castle on their list of things to do. This is the castle in Aichach where Elisabeth, the Queen of Hungary and Empress of Austria, grew up. The castle doesn’t look that impressive when compared to other castles, but it’s a beautiful place to visit while you are there.
Finding a place to rest your head at night is not difficult to do. To get a view with your room, check out the Sisi Lodge, which allows you to wake up to a view of the castle.
Those wanting to relax for a couple of minutes should look for a cafe. You shouldn’t have to look far if you are near a tourist attraction, and it should be easy to find a local beer, considering that you are in Bavaria.
