Stadtbach

Water from the river, earlier essential for the town’s craftsmen, has been diverted from Benninger Ried into Memmingen since before C.12th.

Fischerbrunnen

The fisher festival, celebrated annually in July, has a long tradition. The fishers’ fountain, donated in 1955, is the symbol for “Fishers’ Day”.

Schrannenplatz

Wheat and rye were distributed throughout the whole of southern Germany from this corn-market and distribution-point.

Goldener Löwe

The oldest wine-tavern in the town is the “Golden Lion”, with its venerable wine parlour on the first floor. A cannonball under the gable bears witness to the siege of 1647.
