The Tanzhaus on the Reichsstraße houses the archaeological museum, a fitting start to a journey along the historical road. Do not miss the impressive town hall on the same street. Head through the Rieder Tor gate, which houses the local history museum (Haus der Stadtgeschichte), and visit the old town on the island of Ried. This is where the town first began to develop. Another local heritage museum (the Heimatmuseum) is located here. Back on the Reichsstraße, walk past the Liebfrauenmünster church and the Fuggerhaus. Your walk ends at the Käthe Kruse Doll Museum, which is dedicated to the history of the famous dolls from Donauwörth. The tourist information office offers many guided tours.
