Weingarten is a small town in the South of Germany. It's rather quiet there as it is located next to another small town called Ravensburg and most people hang out there. Social life is also not quite interesting there, but then there are plenty of places around town to spend a nice evening.

The only decent bar/restaurant I know there is the Schindler Hannes, which is a quite cheap but fun place to hang out at.There is a decent Indian restaurant just a few houses apart as well.

The main attraction in Weingarten is the Basilika Weingarten which is one of the most beautiful baroque churches north of the Alpes. The church hosts the tallest organs in Europe, so they claim :)

Finally, Weingarten is close to Lake Constance and the Alpes. There is a vast amount of lakes, forests, hills, and creeks around and really beatiful if you are the outdoors person.
