Coat of arms Wemding

Wemding attracts many visitors. It is one of the leading destinations for tourists in the Donau-Ries Region.
The medieval town of about 5500 attracts people from everywhere and offers a variety of activities. Ask the local tourist office for details or check the Internet.
A tourist attraction of Wemding is the so called "Schäfflertanz" which is performed every seven years. We never have seen one.
But even without any event going on, we had a good time there.


The "Folterturm" (torture tower)

Pilgrimage church - many thanks to "Florian.b" and Wikipedia

As welcoming Wemding is now it was obviously a complete different story in the 17th century. Some sadistic judges got people tortured to death because of witchcraft. This happened over many years is the so called "Folterturm".
The little tower was used for very gruesome interrogation until the accused were "telling the truth". I can image that most people said what their torturers wanted to hear.
I don't know wether there is any connection between the pilgrimages to the church "Maria Brünnlein" and these terrible events. This church was built about 100 years after these terrible evens.
The complete catholic church should ask for forgiveness for what happened all over Europe at this time. Did they not read the Bible? Where they not as bad as the Talibans today?
If you are interested in the history of Wemding research the Internet or ask if you visit this now lovely town.
We were not too much interested in this dark chapter of Wemding. We preferred to do some sightseeing and to talk to the friendly people who praised me for my excellent German and were laughing about Elizabeth's.

The old town wall - many thanks to "Ramessos" and Wikipedia

Many mayor and minor events guarantee that you will never feel bored if you come in the right time.
Check before you come. We could not do that - we were back on our way to Zorneding where we lived. Our friends in Donauwörth told us about medieval Wemding.
I think a medieval meal, called "Ritteressen" could be one of the highlights. It is offered in one of the hotels. We did something similar in Eisenach, Thuringia and it was fun.
Plan a few hours just for sightseeing in this medieval village. Join a guided tour. Take pictures of the town wall with its towers and gates. If you like what you see, check for accommodation and enjoy the hospitality of the locals.
