Kempten, the City on the river Iller is located deep in the South of Germany, on the northern edge of the Alps in the spa and holiday region Allgäu.

The neighbouring countries Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland are only a good hour’s drive away, and so is the Bavarian State Capital Munich.

Kempten is an ideal location for trips into the region. Nearby, in a radius of 20 to 60 km you can find, for instance, Oberstdorf and the peaks of the Allgäu Alps, Lake Constance, the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, the beautiful baroque Basilica Ottobeuren and the romantic so-called "Iller corner".

The land around Kempten invites you to walking, hiking, swimming, cycling, playing golf and to cross-country skiing.
