Weingarten is a nice city, middle size and well positioned in the south of germany. It's a quiet town with a nice inner city, some of it's medieval buildings still preserved. There you can also find one of the biggest baroque churches of germany, the'Basilika of Weingarten'. If you are interested in baroque arts, you should visit the place. In the city center you can find some bars and restaurants, but the better ones you have to search for, because they're even at the outskirts of the town. Weingarten has got for some years now a new museum, regardinbg the history of Weingarten and the area, for example the 'Bauernkriege', war of the peasants, whose result was essential for the developement of the area.
If you like more go for shopping, Weingarten has got only some possibilities, so it's better to take also an look to Ravernsburg, the neighbouring town. And if you prefer to take a walk through the nature, Weingarten is a good starting point to go in the woods around the city and the wider area. You should take a look at the city and it's surroundings when you are close by!
