The Stadtpark is located right in the centre of the town at the Central Transfer Station “ZUM”. Once the Stadtpark had been rebuilt, it became a place for well-being right in the heart of the Allgäu town, still connecting the former free imperial city and the ecclesiastical city. The Park was originally built in the 1890s. The focal point of the Stadtpark has to be its octagonal music pavilion, where bands used to perform concerts on Sundays. A special attraction for children are the playing and climbing facilities as well as the water features with their alternating jets of water.
The Stadtpark has hosted the Allgäu Festival Week since 1949. Each year the Park is transformed into one of the ten largest regional consumer trade shows in Germany. Another of the numerous parks in Kempten is the Altstadtpark. This park is directly situated on the banks the Iller, on the grounds of the former gasworks near the Burghalde. The Altstadtpark offers a small playground and the Iller Steps. It is a beautiful place to relax and soak up the sun and also an excellent spot to take a break from a cycle tour. Time and again, a pair of swans visits this magical place.
