Füssen is the ending point (or starting point, in our case) for one of Germany’s most famous drives- the Romantic Road. It’s a picturesque town with colourful architecture, charming old town squares and even a hilltop castle.
Füssen is not only beautiful, it has a lengthy history dating back to Roman times. Interestingly, it was also a major centre for the manufacturing of lutes, a popular musical instrument of the Middle Ages through to the Baroque period.
We used Füssen as a base for exploring two of Bavaria’s best attractions, the nearby Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle. We only spent one night here, having just a few evening hours to wander the quiet streets. As soon as we got to exploring the Old Town, I wish I had allowed more time in our itinerary to enjoy Füssen.
As is always the case, there is never enough time when travelling and the next day we needed to reach Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Unfortunately, we really just got a small taste of what Füssen has to offer!
