You won't see the church unless you know it's in Munsterplatz as it's surrounded by tall buildings. However, you'll here the regular toll of bells and wonder where it is. The square is off one of the four main pedestrianised thoroughfares which cross the old town and is right next to the Munsterbrunnen art water feature. This late Romanesque church can trace it's history back to 1120 and rededicated to "Church of our Lady" in 1530. The interior frescoes, stained glass windows, elaborate Alter, side chapels and carved pulpit depicting stages of the Crucifiction are really beautiful to behold. We arrived around midday and the church bells rang out tunes for quite a while. There was also a farmers type market in the surrounding square which was in the process of packing up.
Afterwards we strolled around the pleasant old walled town and enjoyed a snack in one of the many cafes.

The statue is located to the left of the Villingen Munster church on Munsterplatz which is just off one of the 4 main pedestrianised thoroughfares through the old town. The 8 sided water feature was created in 1989 and tells the 1000yr history of the town with well known personalities from the modern era. To be honest, although this art work has interesting aspects I found it rather dark and of course you need to have good command of the German language to decipher the writings. However, in conjunction with the church it's worth visiting if in the area and the walled old town has numerous cafes and shops with a distinctly non tourist feel - so a bonus!

Driving from Stuttgart to Freiburg along the eastern part of the Black Forest, we stopped for a few hours at this fascinating industrial museum, which won the European Museum of the Year award in 2003. A new museum located in an historic building, it has guided or unguided tours of the history of the area's thriving mechanical clock industry (before it went digital and moved to Asia). This museum will be of particular interest to guys (or gals) who like to put things together or see how things are built, like computer equipment. Our tour guide, Gregor, spoke excellent English; he turns on each of the old machines and actually makes the component parts of clocks. Other parts of the museum have hands-on activities for the visitor. Along the walls and in photo books at each station are very moving photos illustrating the working conditions of the clock industry, such as worker safety, child labor, the role of female workers, and the environmental impact of the industry. Public parking in nearby parking decks. Located 45 minutes south of Stuttgart off the E41, exit local road B523. (Note: there is a separate "history of clocks" museum a few blocks away with lots of clocks, but not the machinery or social history of the industry)

We had a few hours to spare and tapped in 'sights' in the GPS which directed us to this little gem. We seemed to be the only visitors and spent a pleasant hour and a half looking at the restored and partly restored airplanes from a bygone era. There are also WW1 'planes and thousands of models.
Well worth a visit.

Da hat man einen der größten, keltischen Grabhügel vor der Haustür und außer ein paar Tafeln und den pfosten gibts nix zu sehen. Wenn man die keltschen Funde anschauen möchte muss man schon ins Franziskanermuseum gehen. Ansonsten ist der Weg aus der Stadt und die Landschaft um den Magdalenenberg durchaus einen Sonntagsausflug wert.

Das Franziskanermuseum ist eines der größten regionalgeschichtlichen Museen des Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreises und befindet in einer historischen Klosteranlage des 13. bis 18. Jh. Die Dauerausstellung gliedert sich in die Abteilungen Stadtgeschichte, Schwarzwaldsammlung und Keltisches Fürstengrab.
Rien d'extraordinaire, certes, mais beaucoup de jolies choses dans ce musée. On peut y passer deux heures en y apprenant pas mal de détails sur l'histoire de Villigen, notamment qu'elle a été assiègée par les armées de Louis XIV...
