Marktoberdorf – a town with many facets


Marktoberdorf – a town with many facets


Whether you are looking for a rural and natural environment or cultural highlights – Marktoberdorf offers almost everything. With a fascinating mixture of contemplative tranquillity and village life, accumulated history and lively modernity, culture and pure nature. There are many venerable churches and clearly presented museums that are worth a visit. For example, the parish church of Saint Martin on the Schlossberg is a jewel of the Rococo period. The Chapel of Our Lady in Marktplatz, which, together with the Old Town Hall, gives the town its own, attractive ambience, offers you time out from your hectic everyday life.

The Bavarian Music Academy in the former prince bishop's palace, high above the rooftops of Marktoberdorf, promises sheer cultural delight. The almost two kilometre Kurfürstenallee, lined by lime trees, also provides great pleasure. Here, you can enjoy the unique view of Marktoberdorf and the Alpine panorama again and again.
