The Hohes Schloss (High Castle)
One of Bavaria's largest and best-preserved Gothic castle complexes perches on a high rock overlooking the village. The one-time home of the bishops of Augsburg now showcases art from the Bavarian State Collections of Painting.
Visit the beautiful Baroque complex of St. Mang Abbey, named after the patron saint of Füssen. The former cells of the Benedictine monks now house valuable works of art and archaeological finds from the abbey's 1000+ year history.
The castle of the 'fairytale king' Ludwig II is one of the most popular palaces and castles in Europe. The king had built the castle in order to withdraw from public life but now you can gain an insight into his private refuge on a guided tour.
