From Sigmaringen the Danube cycle path leads via Scheer and Mengen to Riedlingen. On the way one sees very little of the Danube.
Riedlingen is one of the few towns that have been largely spared from plundering and the chaos of war. The old town presents itself today with buildings from the 13th to the 18th century (town hall 15th/16th century, Georgskirche 14th/15th century and many half-timbered houses). Therefore a visit is always worthwhile.
The historic Riedlingen market square is located in front of this impressive row of houses with beautiful town houses from the 17th and 18th century.
The representative building of the town hall, decorated with stepped gables, is already mentioned as a department store in 1447. Investigations revealed that the oak beams inside were cut in 1520-1521. Year after year storks breed on the town hall without being disturbed by the hustle and bustle of the pulsating small town. In the Danube floodplains around Riedlingen you will find plenty of food.

Since 1997, the "Weibermarkt" has been adorned with a stately fountain for fools (Narrenbrunnen)
View from the market place into the Lange Strasse (pedestrian zone)
There are always interesting views of beautifully restored houses.
