Day Trip to Bad Wimpfen, Germany
I haven’t blogged since we moved here last July, but I figured today might be a good day to get started. We have really loved living in Germany and exploring so many new places. This little town is not far from us, and we just loved it. It was settled around 450 B.C., and is on the Neckar River, just like Heidelberg. It was one of the biggest Roman towns in our state and also had a Roman wall around the city. It has one of the largest Roman buildings in Germany, too. There are so many neat historical parts of this town – it was a big part of the Reformation and it also has it’s own mineral springs. (That’s why it has Bad as the first part of it’s name, because of the therapeutic baths) It was spared from WWII bombing so a lot of the history has been preserved. The eagle is the Bad Wimpfen coat of arms which meant it’s a free imperial city. You can read more on the town’s website here.
