Kempten is located on the River Iller in the Allgäu, Bavaria and is the centre of a dairy region that is widely known for its cheeses. Among the city's manufactures are textiles, paper, and beer. Of Celtic origin, Kempten became a flourishing Roman colony called Cambodunum. Kempten passed to Bavaria in 1803.

Kempten was an Imperial city in medieval times and this has given it the right to use the imperial eagle in its arms. In 1818 the city was combined with the Imperial Abbey of Kempten and the new arms showed the imperial eagle from the city arms, and a tower taken from the arms of the Abbey.

    Graham, thanks for the pages on Kempten. My parents were married in St. Mang and all my relatives still live in the area. Cheers.

    Such a pity, you have been here in my town and I have been gone on holidays myself... Did you like Kempten? Christian.
