Meitingen is a place with only two hotels, is close to the Nature Park Augsburg, and has lots of little surprises in store.
As with most of Swabia and Bavaria as a whole, its countryside is so incredibly gorgeous it will have you speechless. You might not have much to say other than “WOW” when you’re inside the Nature Park Augsburg. Within the park are Nordic Walking trails, cycling trails, plain old easy walking paths, and the Swabian Folklore Museum.
Even Meitingen’s SunSplash outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by tall green trees and a picture perfect landscape. If you got nerve climb up the diving board and look around. The pool complex also has a baby pool and a free form swimming pool.

More information about Meitingen can be found at the Information Center at the Town Hall. Sorry, it’s not any kind of historical building — it’s a modern structure.
Besides checking out artwork by local artists, you’ll find information on many goings on about town. Like the small animal market, pedigree dog shows, youth orchestra concerts, the Advent Bazaar, and Christmas Market.
All that activity works up the hunger and you can’t find some better food. Swabian dishes are hearty fare and even though this is Bavaria where beer rules — different wines are always a good choice.
If it’s on the cold side, sample the Gaisburger March which is a beef and veggie stew; or something called Schupfnudeln that are thick potato dumplings. For a quick snack nothing beats a Laugen Bretzel.
At the Gasthof zur Alten Post and the Gasthof Neue Post you’ll get accommodations that refresh the tired traveler and the best rustic food in their restaurants.
Hey, sometimes it’s not a visit to a museum that gives you true local flavor of a place; sometimes it’s the food and all the other little surprises that will do it for you instead.
