German City Series: Büdingen

Monthly Featured German City: Medieval Gate in Büdingen | Buedingen

A small town with about 20,000 inhabitants, a city wall and half-timbered houses...

Sounds like many other German towns, what makes Büdingen special?

Albert Einstein probably pondered that question when he visited the castle museum incognito in 1952. Büdingen is a very well-preserved medieval town with its church being built in the year 700, right in the middle of a swamp valley. This month we will go into depth about the history and folklore of Büdingen, and share our favorite parts of the town from our own experiences.
