The city is called Villingen-Schwenningen. Villingen and Schwenningen were merged as part of Baden-Württemberg Territorial Reform Of 1972. Although they have been joined, they remain distinct from each other. Today we saw Villingen.
My daughter and I were on our way to Rottweil when we got lost (a skill I’m very good at) and ended up in this town. I had to stop and ask someone where we were. My husband would have said “use the map on your phone” and I would’ve replied “I hate maps and it would take less time to ask.” It’s true because by the time I finished writing this paragraph, I already had my answer. Besides, I like human contact over technology.
This was the first tall structure we saw from the parking lot. It’s the Benedictine Church of Villingen. It was consecrated in 1725.
This is what we saw heading to the Villinger Münster.
The Villinger Münster (Münster Unserer Lieben Frau or Cathedral Of Our Lady).
It seemed like there were gate towers wherever we turned.
We were surprised to see many restaurants open on a Sunday. This town is definitely worth a second trip.
