    On the outskirts of town lies a museum housing the remains of a Roman bath complex. This was open on Easter Sunday.

    I’m glad, because it was discovered by my guides‘ late father and they’re rightly proud of it. He was a civil engineer and it was uncovered during one of his projects. They think he was also involved in the construction of the attractive museum building.

    It is well worth a visit if you have 30-45 minutes to spare.

    Altmühltherme

    by iaint Written Jun 14, 2011

    This is a thermal bath/swimming pool complex in the centre of Treuchtlingen, just a few kilometres down the road from Weißenburg.

    The warm water is from a natural thermal spring discovered when the local brewery sank a well to obtain fresh water. A lot of money has been invested recently with a view to obtaining “Bad” status. I’m reliably informed that this may happen soon. So, you know it is a Bad in all but name.

    It has a normal swimming pool with waves, slides and so on, so the kids can entertain themselves while the parents have the health treatment.
    We went to the thermal bath - an indoor section with various jets and bubbles to stimulate and the same outdoors, but larger. Like a gigantic jacuzzi. They have 2 kinds of steam room as well. I’m told they have saunas too, but we didn’t try that.

    All very relaxing and enjoyable. We were there in June, but I guess the outdoor pool must be a lot of fun in midwinter! Warm water and very cold air...

    I think it cost us about €3.50 per adult for 3 hours. I’m a bit vague because we had a long discussion at the ticket desk about the best “deal” with the receptionist believing we were a family (man, woman, 2 teenage girls) when in act we weren’t!

    Anyway, I think the price depends on how long you spend in the spa area - you get checked in & out electronically - and which bits you want to use.

    When walking around the townhall you'll see how nice it looks from the side. I like the roof so much!

    Spitaltor

    In former times, it was the southern border of Weissenburg. Later it was a city gate and as well the tower of a church.

    Schranne

    The tower is still old, the building is rather new. The Schranne was used as a place where the corn and flour was sold.
