Known for What-this is where Hitler was imprisoned for the insurrection charges in1920's and he wrote Mein Kampf here with Rudolph Hess. Got to be more to the town than that. Yes, there is. It is a lovely setting with ornate and unique buildings, and many special tower gates.
Dominck Zimmermann and Hubert von Herkomer were two famous people; one an architect and the other an artist. They left legacies in the town to their works
Raging Lech River contributed to the reason to locate here centuries ago. It is clean and refreshing looking. The town is inside the curing river, and it is swift
Sandaurtor is one of seven in the town. They are all on a route path to find fairly easily, and each unique compared to the others. The towers and gates controlled the movement of people and also used as protection. In 1633 the Swedes attacked and could not pierce the wall after 5 days of bombarding. Finally they made a breach, and the fear by townfolk; especially women led the women to jump to their deaths rather than be subject to rape and death by the Swedes. This place in the town is now called "Leap of the Virgins"
