You know, it happened again! Folks are all set to learn more about a Weilheim in Germany, only to find out there are three of them. Talk about confusing. It’s a good thing I’m here to help so that YOU won’t find yourself traveling to the wrong Weilheim. ;-)
Now, if you’ve been poking around MyGermanCity.com you’ll know that the Swabian Alb is just a gorgeous piece of real estate throughout South Germany with all sorts of villages with historic town centers and fun festivals going on. Oh, wait, if you haven’t been reading around this Web site yet, I just told you — so it’s all good anyway (but still, take a look around nonetheless).
So, it’s safe to say that Weilheim an der Teck is that sort of town. Its Rathaus (Town Hall) was built in 1777; and thousands of visitors from all over come to the Städtlesfest (1st Sunday in July), the Dorffest or Village Festival (1st Sunday in September), and the Kirschblütenfest or Cherry Blossom Festival in April. Oh, I think I can still smell the fragrant air of the trees during this awesome festival!
I can also still smell (and taste) the doughy pastry called Bätscher. This local treat is usually made with sour cream, cumin, and bacon, but it can also be made with chives, onion, and ham. I’d say no trip to this Weilheim would be complete without trying one.
Now, don’t make the same mistake I did and find yourself in the wrong Weilheim — just remember to get on the A8 Motorway. If you hit the Swiss border, you’ve gone too far!
