One of the favorite supporting destinations we regularly stop at is Dinkelsbuehl, a lovely walled town on the Romantic Road and an official European Cultural Monument. Crowned the “prettiest old-town in Germany” by one of the major news magazines, Dinkelsbuehl never fails to delight.
The city walls, which date back to the 13th century, have 4 gates and 14 towers, each with its own name and story. The walls are best enjoyed from the outside, as portions of the old city moat, strategically placed ponds, and the Woernitz River all add charm to the scenes. Dinkelsbuehl is photographer’s dream.
The old town is filled with many magnificent buildings dating back as far as the 14th and 15th centuries. The most impressive is surely the half-timbered “Deutsches Haus”, smack dab in the center of town. Another defining feature of the old town is the complete lack of shops full of kitschy souvenirs, so Dinkelsbuehl has a genuine authentic feel.
Dinkelsbeuhl is a regular stop on our Rothenburg and the Romantic Road day tour. It can be visited in more depth on customer request or any of our Multi-Day tours that include Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
