It was a dull, wet Sunday when we visited the Basilica in the historic centre of Kempten, so there were no shops open, only a few cafes, however that did not dampen our experience.
The Basilica is just stunning, in size but especially the interior, one of the most beautiful we have seen. There is also a huge Monastery attached to the Basilica. The grounds are also very beautiful, well maintained and exceptionally clean, as is all of the historic area. It is well worth visiting.

The Forum Allgäu shopping centre is located a few steps away from the city centre and accommodates all kinds of shops, supermarkets, restaurants etc.
Everything you might expect.
It's convenient and nice on a rainy day, but it's not the reason why people are visiting Kempten. That's the reason why I only rated the centre as 'average',

We visited the residenz with my family during Easter holidays.
You need a guided tour and the lady who showed su around was incredibly good... Only problem... The tour is only in German, so due to the limited knowledge of the language we could not enjoy all the details she was providing.
Compared to the hurried Tours of the famous Ludwig Castles, this is a very personali experience that you will surely love if you can speak decent German.
The residenz is amazing, a great ex ampie of rococò and baroque masterpieces.

The Kempten Rathaus (City Hall) is located right in the middle of the city centre, was originally built the late 15th century and modified in the thirtees of the past century.
It looks like the typical Bavarian neo-gothic style.
The city hall is located on the Rathausplatz, here you'll find several reatayrants and bars, overlooking the Rathaus building. This is also a nice place to sit down, have a drink and enjoy the street life.

Make sure you walk to the thermal baths around the corner from the main exhibition, that's definitely the most impressive part. The view from the top is good too.

I love the beauty of these century old buildings. It's reputed that Kempten is the oldest town in Germany. The architecture certainly stands out and is worth taking a while to walk around it all.
We got a map from our hotel and enjoyed a walk (it's not far) around the major sights. This one does not disappoint!

We visited this museum as part of our day in Kempten, it covers local life and history over several floors of an old building. The ground floor includes a café where we had lunch (a big sausage and a bread roll each) and a general history section while other floors cover life in the city, life in the country and money.

Klasse, dass es eine so schöne Galerie in Kempten gibt. Nicht einfach zu finden, da momentan eine Baustelle genau vor der Türe für etwas Verwirrung sorgt, lassen Sie sich nicht abschrecken, ein Besuch in den wechselnden Ausstellungen lohnt sich.
Wir haben uns im Dezember die Exponate der Künstlerinnen Gwendolyn Boos und Simone Winkler angesehen und waren sehr beeindruckt von den Werken der beiden. Die Ausstellung wechseln jedoch alle paar Wochen, so kann man immer wieder dort hingehen und schauen.
Die Gewölbe sind eine perfekte Umgebung für Bilder und Skulpturen.
An der kleinen Bar kann man sich mit preiswerten Getränken erfrischen.
