Actually we visited Memmingen in the morning just to kill some time before our afternoon flight, but were positively surprised. Maybe not the whole old town is impressive, but generally it's well preserved and interesting. City walls, gates, some nice churches, town hall, tax house...More

The city centre is charming, picturesque and very easy to get around. Plenty of pedestrian space, cafes, shops and even spaces to park. A little off the beaten tourist track and that is why we like to spend time here.

Memmingen was not really on my radar as a place to visit but it is surprisingly nice and has quite a few things to see and do. A very relaxed feel and a lovely Alstadt for a coffee and a relaxing visit.
