Tourist Information

Kempten – 2,000 years of history and a southern atmosphere:

Kempten is situated in the centre of the Allgäu-region, the southernmost holiday region of Germany.

On warm summer evenings, Town Hall Square with its many street cafés will remind you of a vibrant Italian piazza; in the German winter it is a picturesque setting for the Christmas market.

Kempten is 2,000 years old (city history) but no museum. The museums of Kempten and the Archaeological Park Cambodunum (APC) make history vivid and tangible.

Kempten is the central shopping opportunity for the whole region. From small, specialised shops to big shopping malls – shopping is fun in Kempten!

As you make your bed so you must lie on it. Hotels, guesthouses, holiday homes, and private rooms will be happy to provide you with a temporary home – Accommodation.
