Villingen-Schwenningen Things to Do

  • Explore the local area

    Villingen rail station is on a good local route for several places. We went to Konstanz, on the German/Swiss border, about 1/2 hour train journey from Villingen. It's a lovely town, even in the winter, with the beautiful old painted houses found all over the region. The Bodensee (local name for Lake Constance) was frozen for quite a way out at this...

    It was a Saturday night, and we couldn't find a nice-looking restaurant in the old part of Venningen. But then we came across this place. It looked nice at first glance, so we went in. In fact, it is a nice, cozy, quiet restaurant with friendly staff and great Italian food! We felt so lucky to find it, and will go back if in Venningen again.

    Favorite Dish: I had a tortellini dish with ham -- it was delicious!!!

    A nice and cosy almost Irish style bar!
    Friendly service, good food and a wide range of malt whiskies.
    Music is sometimes too noisy to talk, but the waiter will see for that if you ask for it.
    They have full-screen soccer events on TV!

    Dress Code: casual

Villingen-Schwenningen Warnings and Dangers

    Extending scissors

    Compared to places like Elzach, there isn't much to fear in Villingen. The spectators are treated gently here. You may be 'dusted' with a smooth feathery duster, that's all.

    If you wear a hat or cap, though, keep watch. There may be some extending scissors around... With this tool they can reach out over 2 or 3 metres, grab your hat and put it on someone else's head.

    Favorite thing: I was really impressed from the townpart Villingen. They offered many interesting things from the medieval time. A wonderful Townwall! Three of the old Towngates are still OK, and many other things, like a Museum...

    Fondest memory: I loved these Medieval Towncenter!!!
