The versatility of Ravensburg, Germany
Reviews > Europe > Germany > Ravensburg > The versatility of Ravensburg
Ravensburg is a amazing place. In the two world wars it wasn't heavily hit, so the medieval town is completely preserved. It's really interesting to see for example the old town hall from the 15th century or the many towers of medieval times, still present in the towns view with some parts of the old city wall. If you only want to watch that, you can spend at least a whole day.
Together with the new 'Humpis Museum', where you can take a look at the local history, it's even possible to touch it, you can dive deep into the history of medieval people of Ravensburg and around.
But there're more things you can do. If you just want to relax, go to one of the many bars and restaurants, spread all over the city, but mainly around the central place, the 'Marienplatz'. There you can also find many shops, where you can let your women go shopping while you enjoy a coffee or a beer.
Even for nightlife you have got some possibilities to go to, for every taste and age. The most are around the railway station and close to it. So you definitely aren't allowed to miss it!
