Füssen is a beautiful small town on the banks of Lech River. About 14,240 residents enjoy their life in one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Germany. Very close to Füssen is located the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which is the most important attraction of the whole area for tourists. Fussen is the city where the most beautiful route in whole of Germany ends, the famous Romantic Road, of course we will refer to it with more details in a separate article.
What To See...
Spend plenty of time and wander through the cobbled streets of the old town. You will surely be fascinated by their colorful buildings and frescoes, as they create an even more romantic feel in this already beautiful city.
The castle of Füssen for Germany is one of the most important buildings built at the end of the gothic period. It used to be the summer residence of the Bishops of Augsburg but today it is used as a gallery. The castle is located in the center of the town and you can easily visit it and admire its interior and exterior.
One of the most impressive buildings in the city is the German Parliament building. The glass dome is one of the most characteristic points and it is definitely an attraction that we recommend you to visit. The building is open to the public and you can take a tour every day from 08:00 to 24:00.
This fairytale castle is located in the small village of Hohenschwangau, quite close to Füssen, and is a World Heritage Site. It is built on a hill on the most romantic road of the Bavarian Alps. King Ludwig II built this palace at the end of the 18th century as his own personal shelter and as a tribute to the romantic composer Richard Wagner, for which his construction and decoration is heavily influenced by the romantic Renaissance architecture. After the King’s death the castle opened for the public and nowadays attracts 1.3 million visitors every year. To enjoy the unique experience of the palace, and see also the incredible interior, you can get your ticket from the box offices that you will find in Hohenschwangau, and its price starts at 22 euros per person. The tour takes 35 minutes and no photos and videos are allowed inside the castle.
End Of Romantic Road
Gedächtniskirche is not an ordinary church, but in fact, are the ruins of a church originally built in 1890. The ruined church tower is one of Berlin’s most characteristic and multiphotographed points. The new church built right next to Gedächtniskirche is really impressive, especially inside, where it is built entirely of glass that has a blue color. It is truly one of the most beautiful churches we have visited.
St. Mang Monastery
One of the city’s most historic sights is the Berlin Wall or better a part of the wall that separated the city in eastern and western Berlin a few years ago. Even today, the Germans are not proud of this wall at all and even call it the “Wall of shame”. The story of this wall is too big to analyze it on a page dedicated to travel, but we can tell you for sure that it is worth visiting if you are in Berlin.
Tiergarten is the largest and most beautiful park in Berlin. In the heart of the city and along the central boulevard Bundestrasse, which crosses this huge park, you will find an opportunity to enjoy a peaceful walk and enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
Just a short distance from Neuschwanstein lies the castle that grew King Ludwig II, the castle of Hohenschwangau. Built in an idyllic landscape that enchants you and travels you in the 18th-19th century. The castle’s space is well preserved and you can see it by combining the ticket with a visit to Neuschwanstein.
Potsdam square and the homonymous avenue that crosses it, is one of Berlin’s most famous shopping districts. Some huge shopping centers, cafes and restaurants are located around this area. If you want to shop in Berlin then Potsdam square is the perfect place to visit.
Berlin is a very big city and you will need several days to see the main attractions, but if you want to do a relatively short trip, then the one that we recommend you is the Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam, which is only 26 kilometers away from Berlin. With easy access by car or train from Berlin Central Station, the Sanssouci Palace is definitely the best attraction you can see near Berlin. The ticket costs 12 euros per person and opening hours are daily except Monday from 10:00-16:30.
What To Eat
Bavarian cuisine is the main cuisine that you will find in this city. If you are a meat lover, you will find delicious, traditional, local dishes that match perfectly with local beers.
Some of the famous Bavarian dishes are pork roast cuts with potato dumplings, schnitzel, platters with a variety of sausages and Käsespätzle, which are fresh handmade pasta served with melted cheese and onion.
What also made us impression is the wonderful sweets we found everywhere. Keep some space for a delicious cake, a juicy tart or a traditional apple pie with ice cream and whipped cream.
How to move
Berlin is a very big city and you will definitely need means of transport to get around easily and quickly. The best solution is the metro of the city, which has the characteristic U sign and is almost everywhere. The one way ticket is quite expensive as it costs 2,80 euros per person, while the unlimited weekly travel card costs 30 euros, and we believe it is the most advantageous solution for your transportation in the city.
Where to stay
In the city you will find wonderful hotels furnished in traditional Bavarian style. Prices are quite high in the old town, and also nearby Neuschwanstein castle. We chose to stay in Halblech, a nearby town about 20 km from Füssen, where there are equally traditional, wonderful hotels at very affordable prices. You can make your reservations via Booking.com
