Marktoberdorf Town Hall

Description

The first traces of settlement in Marktoberdorf go back to the Celts. Since then the town has been enriched by numerous other cultures, many of which can still be discovered during a visit. Today the town in the  Ostallgäu region has a population of approx. 18,300 and offers a wide range of cultural and everyday activities. Located between Füssen with its royal castles and the town of Kaufbeuren, halfway between Munich and Lake Constance, Marktoberdorf attracts especially families, but also  all others.
