A Walk Around the Medieval Town
Near the Bahnhof is a small chapel on top of a hill. It is surrounded by vineyards. At the bottom of the hill are magnificent historic houses.
Church of St. Marien in is near the market square Gengenbach Germany . It is a beautiful church. We could not enter inside as it was past 6 pm when we reached there and was closed.
Gengenbach also boasts of a picturesque, traditional, medieval town centre. An eighteenth century gate with medieval spire dominates the market square. It has cobblestone roads leading to it. Half-timbered houses line both sides. There are pretty flowers in stone planters and even an old wishing well.
In my walks around the town, I came across this ancient water wheel at the Cloister Mill.
