Füssen is a quaint Bavarian settlement that sits at the southern end of the Romantic Road, one of Germany’s most scenic routes. Located at the northern foothills of the Alps along the turquoise Lech river, and boasting alpine vistas, Füssen is an ideal base to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. With a pedestrianized old town covered in pastel-colored buildings, and the late gothic-style High Castle looming over Füssen, this romantic town has been captivating visitors for the past 700 years. Located on a busy tourist trail, thanks to the famous castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau nearby, the town offers myriad experiences to keep you occupied for days. Explore lakes, waterfalls, forested mountain trails, and treetop walkways into neighboring Austria! The town is also known for its local violin and lute-making industry. Take the cable car up Mount Tegelberg or a boat cruise on Lake Forggensee for breathtaking panoramas of Füssen.
