The extensive monastery of St. Mang is home to the oldest fresco in the country. You can wander across the bridge for beautiful views of the historic sites on each bank.

  • Really pretty village and full of life. You can eat in various squares and dwell in stores scattered in the streets. A visit worth!

  • Medieval streets and tenement houses, baroque churches and monasteries, small fine shops create a very special atmosphere in the romantic old town. In summer, the many street cafés offer an almost Italian flair. The city is dominated by the high castle with its colourful paintings.

  • This small village in the South of Germany, the Allgau, is picturesque, idyllic, cute and enchanting in the 1. If you're here, you can only get a holiday feeling. The colourful houses, the cute little streets. Wonderful to stroll through it here, have a drink on a terrace. Ideal base for an active holiday.
