There is a lot for tourists to discover in the Allgäu, but this building is a must-see – the Princely Residence in Kempten. After the Thirty Years’ War, the monumental building was the first church building erected in Germany between 1651 and 1670. The building consisted of the monastery and the collegiate church of St. Lawrence. The representative chambers, designed in the rococo style, served as living quarters for the prince abbot, who was also a secular ruler. These impressive state rooms can still be visited today during informative guided tours. But be careful: Before entering, you must put on felt slippers so as not to scratch the valuable parquet flooring.
