Some information about...

Schwäbisch Gmünd is a town in the eastern part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg, which lies on the Rems river about 50 kilometers east of Stuttgart (the capital of Baden-Württemberg). It also lies at the northern foot of the Swabian Alb. With a population of around 62.000, the town is the second largest in the whole region of East Württemberg after Aalen.

The first settlement in this area was around the 2nd century AD, when the Roman soldiers settled the nearby Limes. In the 3rd century the border lines were assaulted and taken by the Alemans, who settled down in the areas the Romans had abandoned.

Schwäbish Gmünd was founded in the mid-12th century. It was a free imperial city from 1268 until 1803, when it passed to Württemberg.


My experience...

Schwäbisch Gmünd is a quite big city with the population of around 62.000, but its athmosphere makes it a lovely, small Swabian town. Yes, there are lot of people and cars on the streets, but the tipical Swabian houses, streets, the kindness of the local people can compensate for these.

I liked to spend two weeks here in 1989 as a child, and a few days in 2001 and another few days in 2003.
