To find out why so many tourists opt for Bavaria as a holiday destination, make sure you spend a bit more time in the wider area. Oy-Mittelberg, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast, and Bad Groenenbach, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the east of Kaufbeuren are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Grab some transportation and spend some time in Fuessen, a transport and retail hub for the area, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) away from Kaufbeuren. The city offers a range of tourist attractions, including St. Mang's Abbey, Museum of Fuessen and Fuessen Music Hall. Ensure you don't rush back to Kaufbeuren until you've checked out Fuessen's State Gallery in the High Castle and Lech Fall.
Exercise your grey matter by spending a few hours at Bavaria's excellent history museums, art galleries and nature museums. Places of worship are often the perfect portals into a region's spiritual and religious cultures. The churches around Kaufbeuren are certainly no exception.
The area around Kaufbeuren has plenty of outdoor options for visitors who enjoy water. Boating and swimming are some of the ways to have fun upon the water here. Take advantage of the wisdom of the locals and take one of the culinary tours, guided nature walks and segway tours.
At the end of your adventure in Kaufbeuren, spend the last of your euros on last minute keepsakes for the folks at home and say Tschüss (farewell).
