Eva & Nigel Barnett

Due to its tranquil and idyllic setting, Eversleigh is the ideal place to relax in. There are forests, hiking trails, history all around: across the moat the splendid church of 'Mary Ascension', dating from the year 1411. Alongside it you will find the outbuildings of the former Castle Aichheim of the Counts of Rechberg from the 15th century.
For those who are interested in art history, the churches of Altenstadt, Bergenstetten, Filzingen, Illereichen and Untereichen, originating from the middle ages and the baroque era, will prove sights of international rank. Worth a visit is also the Jewish cemetery in Illereichen.

But there is more on offer: entertainment, sport, culture, shopping - there is something for everybody, and good food, too.

For those who have booked rooms in the Schloss Illereichen for their family celebrations or business events, Eversleigh offers good accommodation conveniently close-by.

Only few minutes away are the towns of Altenstadt and Illertissen where you can find further restaurants to suit all tastes from local to international.

Switzerland, Austria, Lake Constance, the Alps, and the Allgäu as Germany's southern-most holiday region are all within an hour's drive. Closer-by are Ottobeuren (basilica and its famous organ), Babenhausen (Fugger castle and museum), Roggenburg monastery and the Vöhlin castle in Illertissen with its bee museum). The former imperial towns of Memmingen and Kempten offer idyllic and central shopping as you might not see it in many other German towns, they are within easy distance via the A7 motorway.
Roggenburg monastery
The town of Ulm with its famous minster is only half an hour's drive away. Its historic quarters convey a glimpse (impression or insight) of the life of former times.
