Bad Windsheim

Bad Windsheim is a small historic city in Bavaria, Germany. It lies in the district Neustadt an der Aisch-Bad Windsheim, west of Nuremberg.

A document from 741 proves for the first time the existence of the town, then called 'Uuinidesheim'. The name changed to 'Windsheim' by linguistic development, meaning 'The home of the wind'. Nowadays, the town is known for its waters and spa, Franken-Therme, and an open-air museum, the Freilandmuseum, which brings together old farms and farmhouses from the area to explore. On the first weekend in August every year Bad Windsheim is the location for an event called 'Weinturm Open Air', a concert on the top of a hill in the town. The town is also known for its war memorial in the form of a large statue of Roland.

Famous quotes containing the word bad:

    Scared, huh. I ain’t never gonna be scared no more. I was though. For a while it looked as though we was beat, good and beat. Looked like we didn’t have nobody in the whole wide world but enemies. Like nobody was friendly no more. Made me feel kind a bad and scared too. Like we was lost and nobody cared.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)
