Kempten

With a population of around 70,000, Kempten is the "capital" of the Allgäu and is based on Roman origins. It has the earliest written mention as a city in Germany and is therefore considered one of the oldest cities in the Federal Republic. The Archaeological Park Cambodunum gives only a glimpse of life in the former Roman city. In the underground showroom Erasmuskapelle, in the state rooms of the Residenz or in the Kempten Museum in the Zumsteinhaus you can still get many interesting insights into the history of the city.
