Coat of arms Wiggensbach

If you were or are a doll collector you should remember the name Ruth Treffeisen. We visited her in Wiggensbach where she lived and worked.
We have been her guests. Unfortunately, the doll business became very slow in Canada and we are no longer importing dolls. However Ruth Treffeisen is still busy, but she does not live any longer in Germany.


We had visited the Oberallgäu Region earlier but it was our first visit to Wiggensbach. We stayed over night in a really comfortable Hotel and enjoyed a great dinner with the well known artist.
The next morning we had a real continental breakfast and Elizabeth was feeling like in heaven with soft boiled eggs and the different cheeses, yoghurt and fresh fruits. She did not touch the other good things.

Wiggensbach cheese making
The traditional way of making good cheese
After the business part was done, we naturally went on a little sightseeing tour through Wiggensbach. Elizabeth was still talking how much she loved the cheese. It was really much better than what I knew from Ontario.
If you want to learn more about the famous cheese from the Allgäu walk the "Allgäuer Käsweg" which I translate with "Allgäuer cheese trail". Carry a dictionary with you and wear good shoes. The trail gas a length of about 30 km or 19 miles. I recommend to rent bicycles.
A must should be a visit of the "Allgäuer Käsküche" (cheese kitchen) to learn more about making good cheese.
Have you ever heard that a cow can be a treasure hunter? We did not either until out visit to Wiggensbach. We learned that in 1888 a cow scrabbled very old coins out of the ground.

As you see Wiggensbach is also attractive in the winter time. Not so much for down hill skiers but for everybody who loves cross country skiing. It would be a perfect place for Elizabeth and me to get some practice. But now it is too late for that.
