Buchloe — A Great Gateway To The Magnificent Allgäu

There are times when you take the expressway or other fast mode of transportation that you’ll pass by some pretty cool places. Then, there are times when they lead you right to it.

You’ll find Buchloe along the Autobahnn A96 and along the LindauMunich train line; a place known as the Gateway to the Allgäu.

Oh, the fact that Buchloe lies within the breathtaking Allgäu region says a lot of what you can expect to see around these parts.

Inasmuch as food plays a large part of daily life (in Buchloe as in anywhere), so does the Allgäu. So, why not combine the two? Try a locally made cheese known as Hirtenkäse (Herder’s Cheese) that goes great with delicious German breads and fresh fruits. Top it off with a good Bavarian beer and you’ve got yourself an incredibly yummy meal.

Some visitors to Buchloe might want to eat and some might want to find comets, stars, and planets. This can be done over at the town’s “People’s Observatory” where you’re able to stare off into the heavens.

Buchloe even has its own Schloss, just don’t go expecting some huge medieval military garrison castle. No, Schloss Rio is a turn of 20th century design and looks like an oversized Lego design (must be the cut of the mansion’s stones).

Visitors are able to learn more about Buchloe and the Allgäu region at the town’s Local History Museum. And you’ll find some beautiful artwork at the 18th century St. Maria Church.

If you want some great bird’s eye pictures of Buchloe then hop over to neighbor Lindenberg’s observation tower and start clicking.

When your feet are firmly planted back on the ground, then start walking, hiking, or cycling through the countryside. There are other sports in town, from tennis, to swimming, and everything in between.

See, sometimes the highways and railways lead you right to best spots, instead of passing them by. ;-)
