Explore Schongau Weilheim-Schongau Region Upper Bavaria Tourism, Travel Guide
My first experience in Schongau was when I was a participant on a work seminar. As much as I regret saying it was many, many years ago. The magical medieval atmosphere was the drawing influence that made it a must for me to show it to Lizzy.
If you approach Schongau coming from the East you may cross the river Lech. Stop at the parking lot after the bridge and enjoy the view.
Bridge over the river Lech
Schongau is nestled on the banks of the river Lech. It is located in the so called "Pfaffenwinkel" which is an area well known for many churches and monasteries. "Pfaffe" is now almost a slang word for a priest and "Winkel" could be translated in this case with corner or even region.
Elizabeth never seems to get tired to visit all the churches on our way. This is understandable because they are very different to the churches I saw in Canada - much more pomp!

Leave your high heels at home when walking through the town
We enjoyed it very much gazing at the town wall, old towers and other historical buildings. This town which was established by the Romans. One of their highways, called "Via Claudia Augusta" was very near to this settlement.
We were not a participant of one the guided tours what we regret. These are offered in a variety of languages, not only German. Probably, we missed the opportunity of increasing our knowledge of local culture as well as missing meeting interesting people. But it was still impressive to view all the well maintained buildings from the past.
During lunch, we were told that the town of Schongau is very active, and that we should not miss the unforgettable "Festspiele" A festival which would be loads of fun. Naturally, we missed it, because we were making preparations to return to Canada.
Schongau is located on the "Romantic Road" which is a strongly recommended tourist route. It connects Füssen with Würzburg and guides you through many picturesque medieval towns, including Rothenburg o.d.T.
