BAD WIMPFEN - WHAT CAN I SAY - GO AND GET LOST IN THIS TOWN - IT'S THE BEST WAY TO SEE IT!
Bad Wimpfen is a historic spa town located beside the River Neckar, in the Baden-Wurttemberg region of southern Germany.
Bad Wimpfen the city, is divided in two. On the hill is the town centre, and in the valley is the "old Wimpfen."
Bad Wimpfen dates from the Neolithic and the Bronze Age. Some archaeological finds reveals Bad Wimpfen was on an old trade route which forked here, one road going to Nurnberg and the other to Ohringen.
Around 450 B.C., Celtic tribes settled here, they are believed to be the first!
As this city is so old, there is plenty of history and historic buildings to be seen.
Bad Rappenau is 5kms away and is worth a visit.
Even though I saw heaps here, there still was more to see.....
Like the Collegiate church that looked more like a Castle than a Church.............
