Memmingen, founded in 1158, is located in the county of Bavaria-Swabia.
There is a lot more to see in this Town than I have written about.
I needed more time for walking!
There is some of the town wall left from the 12th century, medieval market place, the town hall, gothic church of St. Martin, Witches tower, and more than one entrance gate.
A big attraction all over the region is the Fisher's Day when thousands of tourists come to celebrate this medieval tradition.
Saturday, at the end of July, the Trout in the town river are fished for.
On Thursday before Fisher's Day, Kinderfest is celebrated by performances and
dancing in the market place .
For something special.....
Every 4 years, the people of Memmingen wear historic costumes, play scenes of daily life in 1630, when General Wallenstein occupied the town for some weeks.
You need to check the website for more information.
