Schwäbisch Gmünd – History can be this beautiful
Schwäbisch Gmünd will celebrate its 850th birthday in 2012. Our city is one of the oldest settlements established by the Staufers in southwest Germany. The Gmünder marketplace in the historic heart of the city is a true jewel of urban elegance. Ringed with magnificent buildings from eight centuries, this square is among the most beautiful in all of southern Germany. Throughout the city, inviting cafés tempt people into whiling away an hour or two over coffee and cake, while a wealth of attractive shops are perfect for shopping expeditions.

The fast connection to Stuttgart is as much of a bonus to Schwäbisch Gmünd as the wonderful landscape of the Swabian mountains. Ideal for strolling, relaxing and simply enjoying.
