The German town of Füssen is a magical little town with sites of historical interest and a landscape that sets the scene for a fairytale. It makes the perfect end for those traveling along the country’s Romantic Road - a picturesque route through the forests and mountains of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. It’s location at the entrance to the mountains and against a lake has given it a long history and established some of the world’s most renowned castles.
It is without a doubt that the most popular site of Füssen is Neuschwanstein Castle
. It’s so popular that it nearly overshadows the town itself, causing travelers to pass it by in lieu for a stop at the castle. But it isn’t the only one that deserves a visit. Hohenschwangau Castle is directly across from Neuschwanstein, and Falkenstein offers the castle ruin experience. Outside the tour of the castles are visits to Wieskirche, one of the world’s greatest rococo masterpieces, and a trip to the ski area of Tegelberg. Füssen is a great town to get around with via a bicycle as it is small enough and there is a network of bike routes. Plus, capturing the cityscape and fresh air can only add to the pleasure. Linderhof Palace, the beautiful Lechfall, and St. Mang’s Abbey
are but a few more of the reasons why Füssen deserves to be more than a rest stop on the way to Neuchwanstein.
