Kaufbeuren in Swabia has heart warming scenery and invigorating cultural attractions that go together to keep you transfixed in an earlier period in history. It’s the land of castles and cathedrals that lend an old world charm to the picturesque Alpine scenery.
Walk along the Old Town area to experience the beauty of the place at a leisurely pace. Four imposing towers rise up into the blue skies as reminders to a glorious past.
The town walls are still well preserved and will definitely serve to impress you with their mighty demeanor. The fascinating facade of the 19th century Town Hall is certainly made for photography.
Don’t even bother to resist the charms of the local restaurants. Whether it’s for cool beer, scrumptious apple dumplings, or simply meditating over a hot cappuccino, you’re at the right place. Delightful shops in the vicinity offer plenty of quaint artifacts for browsing or filling up your shopping list.
You will certainly want to explore the tall structure of the Fünfknopfturm, or the Five Button Tower, which is a historic icon that draws a lot of attention.
Other attractions here would be the St. Martin’s Church and the Church of St. Blasius with their ornate interiors and sacred art work.
The 12th century Crescentia Kloster is another icon that visitors to this town never give a miss. Make time for the Kunsthaus and the Puppentheater Museum that make for fascinating breaks in your town tour.
Summer in Kaufbeuren is replete with cultural fests that draw huge participation from locals and visitors. The Tanzelfest is a delightful event where the local children dress up in traditional costumes and enact the town’s history.
This is just a curtain raiser for the exciting events to follow. ;-)
