Historic Site Tourist Spot
Altstadt von Fuessen, near the Austrian border, represents one of the best examples of a classic Bavarian old town. Winding streets and a collection of squares are laid out along the river Lech at the foot of the Alps. The High Palace, a well-preserved Gothic castle, rises above the surrounding buildings. The extensive monastery of St. Mang is home to the oldest fresco in the country. You can wander across the bridge for beautiful views of the historic sites on each bank. Stop for a traditional Bavarian dish or medieval-style specialty at one of the local restaurants. The town's website provides details on special events, festivals, and guided tours. Our Fussen trip itinerary builder makes visiting Altstadt von Fuessen and other Fussen attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
