When I find out a House or structure is already more than 300, or even 500, years old, I’m astonished. But after finding out the ‘first village’ of the Bavarian Allgäu is already 1200 Years old, I was baffled. Not far from Oberstaufen, where I spent a weekend at Lindner Parkhotel & Spa, you can reach the origin village of the Allgäu easily by foot. Zell was first mentioned in the year 817, making it the first ever mentioned place in the Allgäu. Nowadays the village is not necessarily bigger, nor more famous or in general well-known. But it is known, not for the village and the history itself, but for the beautiful chapel. The Gothic Chapel of St. Bartholomew from 1350. Couples travel even from all over Europe, and even Japan, to get married there. Besides the 1200 year long history of this piece of land, and the equially quite old chapel, you can find the oldest bell of the western Allgaeu in this exact chapel, which dates back to 1350 and only rings on sundays.
