Ottobeuren is an attraction for every lover of art and culture. If you want to combine relaxation with that, you should not miss this village with a population of only about 8000 in the Allgäu.
World famous conductors such like Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein and many other found their way to this place and an excited audience.
The concerts are performed in the basilica or the so called "Kaisersaal". For actual information contact or visit the "Touristikamt". (I do not include any longer links because I was not able to keep them actual)
The basilica is part of a Benedictine monastery which was founded in 764. Study the history of this place. Visit the gallery and the museum in the monastery.

You can also visit the workshops of the painter Erich Schickling and of the sculptor Diether Kunerth.
In your spare time, you can try a "Kneipp Kur". Just check out the facilities which offer this treatment.
Walking, biking, golfing, tennis, squash, horseback riding are other healthy activities which are offered or you can do on your own.
You also can meditate in musical atmosphere. This is offered by the Benedictine monastery. Just watch the video below to get an impression of all the offered activities.
Visit some of the small surrounding villages - most of them are part of Ottobeuren.
We did that and discovered some nice little places - but all my photos are lost. Thanks for the help by Wikipedia - I can show two of such places.
