Old Town, Dinkelsbuhl

4.8
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Dinkelsbuhl
As one of the only remaining walled medieval towns in Germany, Dinkelsbühl's Old Town paints a strong image of the Middle Ages through its streets, churches, and buildings. In the heart of the Romantic Road, the town was a former free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire and has remarkably remained unscathed during the World Wars. The charming historic center houses mercantile buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries. Other notable attractions here include the gothic St. George's Minster, the Castle of the Teutonic Order, and the Historical Museum. You can access the town from four of the wall's 16 towers.

    A pleasant walk through the Centre of this beautiful city, with its houses in beautiful colors and nice cafés, ice cream parlours... However, and in my opinion, much more beautiful abroad visiting from outside the city with ramparts, towers, gardens, lakes... A great evening.

    Staying for work in the area and with my colleagues visited the Centre ... and in that beautiful medieval town we attended a reenactment with horse people and children ... pity not to have known the German to understand the story! The Center still worth a stop to watch in amazement and to take a walk; It's quaint and it is also full of good ristorantini...il my advice is pick Amalfi!
