There are two Krumbachs. One in Austria and the other in one of the most beautiful places in the world — Bavaria. One look at the area that lies between the Danube and the German Alps in Swabia and you’ll agree.
You can’t ask for better weather either, with average summer highs in the 70’s (or 20’s) and lows in the 50’s (or 10’s) — so it shouldn’t be too hot while you’re out on the Nordic Walking trails. Bavarian winters can be cold, but that just makes it perfect to enjoy some great winter sports, don’t you agree?
It’s the combination of a gorgeous forested countryside and history that make Krumbach a wonderful getaway.
Bad Krumbach is the ultimate hotel in town for overnight visitors with spa treatments and massages (at really reasonable rates). It’s also the oldest health resort in the entire Swabian region — so they’ve had ample time to make everything perfect.
Let the spa be your reward for getting out and experiencing the city of Krumbach. Start at the Market Place and Town Hall, follow it around to St. Michael’s Church, whose interior is a vision of pink marble in a Rococo style. For more religious art visit the churches of St. Ulrich, Maria Hilf, and the Lindlkirche.
When you prefer castles to churches, then you’ll love Castle Hürben (it even has its own moat). The imposing Krumbach Castle is right near St. Michaels and can be seen from Krumbach’s City Park.
More interested in Swabian culture? Visit the old Jewish Community Center that’s now the Middle Swabian Local History Museum. It’s said life is hard on the Upper Swabia — but you sure can’t beat the scenery.
And beautiful scenery is just what you’ll get when you’re camping at either Oberrieder Weiher or Breitenthal lake. There isn’t a better place to swim, sail, or fish your day away. Though the kids would probably prefer to visit nearby Legoland (south of Günzburg).
If you managed to get though all this, then you’ve earned that massage. Enjoy! :-)
