Things To Do in Memmingen

Take a tour of the historic centre

Non-locals refer to Altstadt Memmingen as "the old Memmingen town," and it is one of the region's liveliest hotspots. Historic structures will arouse your sense of wonder and a longing for bygone eras. Seasonal holidays like Christmas are great times to go since there are so many great restaurants open and people are so festive.

Visit the town hall

The Memmingen town hall, also known as the Rathaus Memmingen, can be found within the city. With its beautiful facade and complex interior, this outstanding multi-story Renaissance structure dates back to the 16th century. The construction of a council chamber on the city's main plaza dates back to the 14th century, and the Rathaus has undergone several restorations since then. The attractive structure contains components from several periods, and you should look out for the hall's 18th-century Rococo-style renovation and the 1918 war monument.

Attend a gorgeous and beloved local church

Sankt Martinskirche, also known as St. Martin's Church, is a renowned parish church located in the northwestern area of the old town. It's a historic architectural treasure that dates all the way back to the ninth century. It is the city's primary Evangelical-Lutheran church and was a focal point of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Several pieces of art, such as paintings, frescoes, stained glass, and delicately crafted furniture, are housed in this church with elaborate Gothic carvings. The free organ performances for tourists are a highlight for everybody who comes.

Discover a bastion of scholarship

The Buxheim Charterhouse, also known as the Kartause Buxheim, is located in Buxheim, a small town near Memmingen. It used to be a Carthusian monastery, which is where the Salesians of Don Bosco of today are located. It is currently a part of the Diocese of Augsburg in the German-speaking part of the country. Around the year 1100, a collegiate monastery called the Kartause Buxheim was founded. From the Carthusians, it became a Maria Saal monastery from 1402 until 1812. According to legend, the monastery's map of Germany was the only one in the Holy Roman Empire. That is to say, starting in the year 1548. Visit Kartause Buxheim to get a feel for what academic institutions were like in the past. It'll be a worthwhile journey.
