Füssen, in the Allgäu region of Bavaria, is the southernmost point of the famous "Romantic Road“ and one of the stopovers along Germany’s "Alpine Road" and the "Via Claudia Augusta" tourist route from Bavaria to Italy. The town is one hour south of Munich and is the perfect place from which to visit the royal palaces of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau - just 2 ½ miles away.
Strolling through the romantic center of the 700-year-old town of Fuessen is a true delight. The town has plenty of shopping as well as a number of sights to see: baroque churches, the former Benedictine abbey of St. Mang, the municipal museum, the “High Castle” (Hohes Schloss) with its inner courtyard and wonderful frescoes as well as a branch of the Bavarian State Art Gallery.
Around the town is some of Bavaria’s most beautiful landscape framed by the mountains and lakes and with a fabulous network of trails for cyclists, mountain bikers and hikers as well as plenty of opportunity for water sports and winter sports.
