Strolling through the romantic center of the 700-year-old town of Füssen 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.
In summer, the very best views of the Füssen skyline, the palaces of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, and the beautiful Alpine peaks can be enjoyed from on board a lake cruiser on Lake Forggensee. Further sightseeing highlights such as Linderhof Palace; the village of Oberammergau famed for its wood carving artisans and Passion Play; the UNESCO Church of the Wies (Wieskirche, a pilgrimage church); and the new “Museum of the Bavarian Kings” are all easily reachable by car.
