Rathaus Memmingen

Reviewed By Steve E - Barnetby le Wold, United Kingdom

I was invited into the Rathaus by the town mayor during the recent Wallenstein festival, which is held every four years. This is the third time I have been there and the interior matches the exterior, in a word breath-taking. The highly polished wooded décor is wonderful to see and the pristine walls with the brightly coloured paint are a great credit to the town. I would certainly recommend you visit this building if you are in Memmingen.

Kreuzherrensaal

Reviewed By Elsetravelling - Nairobi, Kenya

A very beautiful hall for Concerts in the old church. Worth seeing, and next to it there is a cafe, restaurant, where you can have a coffee with some nice cakes, with also the great ceilings. Something so Barok, with stucco ceilings and fresco'es hidden from the outside in a from the outside simple square looking church is quite a surprise. Also the different used materials, like the marble for the pillars makes it all quite impressive. Just off the main square, so do not forget to check it out when in Memmingen

Sankt Martinskirche

Reviewed By BACNYorks - North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

The best 2euros per adult spent. We got a tour of the tower only by a German speaking guide though he did try to inform us of certain points. Also an overview guide sheet to read. You must be able to climb over 200 steps up then down. It is done in stages to see the floors, bells, clock workings watch keepers accommodation and go out onto the balconies to get amazing views of the surrounding areas depending on weather. Not sure how long into the year it will be open for.

MEWO Kunsthalle

Reviewed By Alex M - Munich, Germany

Several rather spectacular Exhibitions in this extraordinary space, from an exhibition on mass culture, 'Und ich?', organized by students of a local university, to an insightful exhibition of works by women artists from the Middle East (including Mariam Ghani and Mona Hatoum!). A place to re-visit.
Plus a ridiculous entrance fee of 3 €!

Stadtmuseum

Reviewed By JOestreicher - Pompton Plains, New Jersey

We visited this museum as my wife's family is from Memmingen. Their collections were in cases very good, and we were able to find many references to my wife's relatives. The building itself is very nice and a beautiful example of Bavarian architecture.
My biggest complaint is that there is no translation of any of the placards. We would very much have liked to read them but could only try to make our way through with the German we do know.

Siebendacherhaus

Reviewed By Innokentia - Moscow, Russia

Самый впечатляющий фахверковый "Семикрышный" дом Меммингена находится на Gerberplatz, в центре средневекового квартала кожевников. Его внушительные размеры весьма необычны для фахверка, но это было свидетельством важности гильдии для города. А высокая двухскатная крыша с навесными боковыми люками имела большое практическое значение – так обеспечивалась качественная и равномерная просушка кож. Во время войны дом сильно пострадал, тяжелая крыша обрушилась, но позже дом был тщательно восстановлен.

Fischerbrunnen

Reviewed By Innokentia - Moscow, Russia

Этот забавный памятник на яркой площади Schrannenplatz, которую пересекает городской канал Stadtbach. С ним и связана вся история:) В старые времена существовала ежегодная традиция: в июле после капитальной чистки ручья жители города по сигналу в 8 утра прыгали в ручей и ловили форель. Кто поймал самую большую – тот и победитель, «Рыбный король» на год. Один такой герой и изображен здесь в момент своего триумфа. А фестиваль проводится и сейчас.

Landestheater Schwaben

Reviewed By Innokentia - Moscow, Russia

Театр занимает помещения одного из давно закрытых монастырей города и представляет собой весьма любопытную композицию. Одно здание – бывшая церковь. Другое -существенно перестроенный жилой комплекс. Очень интересный микс хайтека и фахверка!
