Testimony to earlier times, of people's devoutness and churches' displays of splendor - the churches, monasteries and synagogues in the Donau-Ries Tourist Region.
The Basilica Maria Brünnlein in Wemding is one of the most popular destinations in southern Germany for pilgrims. Visitors to the powerful, late-Gothic church tower of Nördlingen's St. George's Church are rewarded with an awe-inspiring view of the surroundings - and more: A tower watchman carries out his duties today, continuing a tradition from the Middle Ages. Travelers also find time and place to reflect in Donauwörth's history-filled Monastery of the Holy Cross.
