Fabulous Friday – Gengenbach Calling!

A couple months ago I told you that pictures talk to me in a post titled Hallstatt Calling.  Today I am being called by another town – Gengenbach!

Gengenbach is a wonderful town in the Black Forest area of Germany and has been described as “a pearl among the cities of the half-timbered houses.”

As you will see, this bucolic village is a site for sore eyes.

According to the Gengenbach tourist office “History breathes from every street, where the past meets the present: the preservation of traditions and customs is a responsibility its inhabitants readily and lovingly embrace.”

Indeed, Gengenbach has been around quite awhile.  The first settlement dates back to 73 AD and the town hall was built in 1784!

Tradition is king here.

There are many festivals held each year and the surroundings teem with fresh produce, rivers full of trout and vineyards.

  2. We really enjoyed our trip to Oberammergau for the passion play last year – it is just as picturesque and worth visiting in the years when the passion play isn’t on too.http://www.heatheronhertravels.com/oberammergau-painted-houses-wood-carving/

      I really want to go to the Black Forest. I think one of the walking trips would be a great way to spend a few days.

      Town like this just seem to draw me to them! I am a sucker for those cute, quaint little villages. I will be in Germany this summer and am contemplating a stop in Mittenwald just because it is cute!

  6. It almost looks too perfect to be a real place!

  7. Gengenbach looks great in the day and even better at night. Thanks for the photos!

      I am a sucker for beautiful quaint villages especially if they are in or near the mountains! I am definitely a mountain girl vs a beach girl. Hopefully I’ll get to Gengenbach soon.
