Weiltingen is a small town, as quiet as other villages in an area, where mostly farmers do their business. It lies at about 20 Kilometres away from Dinkelsbühl, the biggest city in the wider region.
There's not much industry, because of that Weiltingen is a good place to start longer walks in the nature. You can take several routes, even a special 'limes' walk, that runs close to Weiltingen.
In the village there are a few acommodation possibilities, but it's always better to call before going there. Call the tourist office at Dinkelsbühl.
Even because the village is very small, about 1200 inhabitants, it has got to offer some hostory specials, you should really take a look at. In the local museum for ancient romans, you can see a very well conceptionzed exhibit of the roman findings of the area. It includes also an great modell an a virtual walk through the roman fort, existing close by Weiltingen. The museum also shows you the roman way of living, always supported by real finds.
After you watched the museum, you also shouldn't miss to visit the area of the ancient roman fort in the fields. It's a great concept of showing you the old dimensions, even with no walls existing any more. Certain plants show you the different walls, special mowed lawns show you the streets of the fort and the different buildings, and even the gate is 'displayed' in its dimensions by big blocks of straw. And all these things are discribed with over 20 shields, being placed at certain positions to explain what building stood there and which funtion it had. Altogether it's a new concept of open air museum, that's also interesting for families with kids. Watch also www.roemerpark-ruffenhoifen.de.
Together with the other roman leftovers in close vicinity, the 'Hesselberg' and the quiet nature, it's an great area to relax and to have also some culture.
