Donauwörth Review

At the old walled town of Donauwörth, 28 km (17 mi) southeast of Nördlingen, the Wörnitz River meets the Danube. If you're driving, pull off into the clearly marked lot on B–25, just north of town. Below you sprawls a striking natural relief map of Donauwörth and its two rivers.

Käthe-Kruse-Puppen-Museum. Donauwörth is the home of the famous Käthe Kruse dolls, beloved for their sweet looks and frilly, floral outfits. You can buy them at several outlets in town, and they have their own museum, where more than 130 examples dating from 1912 are displayed in a renovated monastery building. Pflegstr. 21a, Donauwörth, 86609. 0906/789–170. €2.50. Tues.-Sun.: May-Sep., 11-5; Apr.&Oct, 2-5; Weekends & Wed. only: Nov.-Mar., 2-5.
