In the east of the gentle, almost completely flat meadow landscape of the south bank is the busy Peschiera del Garda. Its location on the Mincio - the only outflow from Lake Garda - gave the town of 9,000 inhabitants special strategic importance at an early stage.Today it is an important hub for rail travelers in particular, because it has a train station - like only Desenzano on the lake. This is only a stone's throw from the old town and, among other things, a stop for the express trains on the route - Milan Venice.Peschiera's old town, completely surrounded by canals, lies within a mighty, beautifully overgrown fortress. When strolling through the narrow streets - which are not dominated by tourism - you will find many nice shops and small bars.On the flat shore between Peschiera and Sirmione there are good bathing opportunities and numerous campsites with large meadows that extend down to the lake. The popular amusement park Gardaland is only two kilometers from Peschiera and the hinterland with its moraine hills and the pretty river Mincio is also a wonderful destination.gardasee.de/peschiera-del-garda

There are many attractions in the city that you can and should visit. First and foremost in this context is the town fortress, a testimony to the warlike past of Peschiera del Garda. The old town, like that of Venice, is criss-crossed by innumerable canals and impresses with its narrow streets. These invite, as well as the green areas of the city, for strolling or lingering.
