For those with historical inclinations, Weißenburg has heaps to offer, having first been referred to by name in 867. With historical as well as viewable connections to the Roman Empire, it became a free Imperial City in 1296. For those less interested in such things, it is a charming town with a variety of architectural styles, perfect for strolling around. Its medieval wall is about as intact as you’ll find anywhere in Germany, resplendent with a water-filled moat in places. There are quite a few hiking trails emanating from the Old Town, if you’re there for a few days. Otherwise, the town itself will keep you plenty busy especially if you have a beery disposition as there are two fine breweries to visit, as well.
