Swabia is divided in Independent Cities and in Regions or Districts. Our Internet travel guide follows this for easy orientation and by using available maps.
We are aware that government funded agencies use different concepts. When we traveled we always wanted to know what we should see in the area in we were. We did not want to miss anything of interest for us.
In addition we have created a searchable database which will help you to find points of interest and even more. We do not receive any funding and our capabilities are very limited.
We will not provide any longer free advertising for any business.
The government of Swabia is located in this former residence of a bishop in Augsburg - many thanks to "Alois Wüst" and Wikipedia
Even in Germany, many people associate Swabia or Swabians with Baden-Wurttemberg. Whenever you visit Bavaria, you will find out that the Swabians form an essential part of the Bavarian population and that they live in a blessed area which is rich in natural beauty.
Beautiful at any season
After I returned from Canada with Elizabeth my Canadian wife we lived in Zorneding, close to Munich. Elizabeth felt immediately in love and the Bavarian life style.
So I tried to show her as much as possible. Then I was called back to Canada and we had missed many things to see or to do because I put them on the back burner.
Business trips related to my job were very brief and Elizabeth could not always come with me.
Later we traveled together for our own small business. But there was not too much sightseeing possible.
Because of a break in I lost most of my own pictures from Bavaria. I had stored them on a second hard disk in my computer which was stolen.
For that reason I am really thankful to all the help which we received with pictures and to Elizabeth for all the notes which she made when we traveled.
The Alps and the lakes were Elizabeth's favorites to see.
Castle Neuschwanstein - many thanks to "Softeis" and Wikipedia
Not without reason, the fairy tale king Ludwig II of Bavaria placed his most spectacular castle "Neuschwanstein" here.
Elizabeth and I are fans of Swabia. It was always something special when we visited the Alps and the surrounding little villages or towns, the meteorite crater in the Nördlingen area or Lake Constance, the largest lake of Germany.
Even business trips to Donauwörth, Neu-Gablonz or Wiggensbach turned out as unforgettable events.
An area called the "Allgäu" turned Elizabeth into a cheese addict. She had cheese for breakfast, cheese for "Brotzeit", (an intermediate meal) and cheese before she went to bed.
When do North Americans learn to make a larger variety of good cheeses? In our local supermarket I can finally see some promising signs - many thanks to Quebec!
Swabia is also the home of the famous "Spätzle". I love them, Elizabeth doesn't. Try a "Zwiebelrostbraten mit Käsespätzle". That is a pan fried steak with fried onions, some natural gravy, eventually with sour cream, and Spätzle covered with good, melded cheese.
Hopefully, we can visit Bavaria and Swabia again soon.
We also want to go back to Augsburg which is so reach on culture. I will visit the "Regierungsgebäude" (the building where the Government of Swabia resides) because I want to compare it with our town halls in Ontario. Whenever a building is older than 50 years, we taxpayers spend money to accommodate all the administrators in modern new building and I am still waiting to see improved services in return.
Füssen - many thanks to "Daniel" and Wikipedia
Swabia is also famous for the offered health treatments. Pastor Kneipp was born here. He developed a treatment using mainly water.
After getting older we loved to visit real spas in Thuringia - please check our respective Internet tourist guide for that.
We missed that in Swabia - we always went to one close to Zorneding.
The Therme Bad Wörishofen - many thanks to "Therme Bad Wörishofen 2010" and Wikipedia
