Bad Wimpfen, Germany

Bad Wimpfen is a small town with a population of 7,000 near Heilbronn in the north of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. In the late middle ages, it was a pretty wealthy and important center for the region so that there are still many monuments of this time to be found in Bad Wimpfen. Of special importance is the abbey church of St.Peter, one of the most remarkable buildings of early gothic in Germany.

Abbey church St. Peter, with romanesque western facade of 10th/11th centuries, the rest of the church was built in the 13th century in gothic style by Parisian architects:

I have never heard of this town before, but it seems worth a visit.
