what a beautiful weekend in allgäu 😎
even if this pretty part of world is less than 2 hours away from munich by car, we knew just the (cinderella) neuschwanstein castle and its surroundings like the hohenschwangau castle, the tegelberg mountain, the lake alpsee and the city of füssen till now. what a pity!
our stops this time were:
- lake niedersonthofener see
- city of kempten
- hochmoor oberjoch (moor bath) - i was quite disappointed here as there is a wooden floor for security reasons and we could not walk trough the black swamp like it is possible in the moor lake in bad bayersoien. the locals said, the moor would tear us down, so let's believe an appreciate it 😇
- mount iseler (1,876m)
- wertach + lake grüntensee
what is a city by definition? there are few cities in germany with former roman military settlements / fortresses which claim to be oldest german cities. well, kempten is the one closest to rome 😉 and yes, the northern alps were conquered by the romans approximately in 15 BC. anyway, there was already a celtic settlement kambodounon and later a roman fortress cambodunum at the iller river. of course, you can visit the archeological park if you want to. kempten is also the city which is mentioned as the eldest city in a document in germany as a celtic polis (city) kambodounon in 18 BC.
