USEFUL INFO

The 700-year old town of Füssen is located at the southern end of the 'Romantic Road' in the region of Allgäu and boasts a special intimate charm. Its quaint cobbled streets and medieval centre are framed by the majestic peaks of the Alps while the nearby fairytale castles of Hohenschwangau & Neuschwanstein take visitors back to the time of King Ludwig II.

The Hohes Schloss (High Castle)

One of Bavaria's largest and best-preserved Gothic castle complexes, perches on a high rock overlooking the village. One-time home of the bishops of Augsburg, it now showcases art from the Bavarian State Collections of Painting.

St. Mang Abbey

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.

Neuschwanstein Castle

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. Find out more about Neuschwanstein Castle here.
