But, let’s face it, the charming countryside, blue skies, parks and gardens, cheerful cafes and restaurants certainly gives the lie to this chapter in history and entices you to come have a look. And then you’ll be glad you did. For, Kaufering has a charm that will certainly win you over.
Kaufering’s attractions certainly include its great outdoors. Major bike routes, hiking trails, and trekking spots crisscross the countryside.

If you prefer to stay put in Kaufering, the Old Town area is where you should head to to get the feel of it all.
Let me warn you at the outset… things are bound to get a bit somber as you head for the Concentration Camp Memorial which houses all the World War II artifacts and records. You see, Kaufering had about eleven concentration camps during the war and if you’re up to it, there are well-preserved monuments and memorials and tour guides to show the way.
Kaufering is certainly not the quintessential German town you may have heard plenty about. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have charms of its own. The Castle ruins in Haltenberg, the quaint railway bridge, and the remains of an old Roman bath are but some of these.
The Lechtalbad or, more precisely, the friendly family bath as they like to term it, is where you’ll realize water could be this much fun. If you liked this, you should certainly devote another day to an even more exciting brand of fun at the Naturbad Kaufering where, frankly, good luck getting your kids out at closing time. It really is that much fun! :-)
