If you want to enjoy historic Germany, visiting Dinkelsbühl is a must-see with houses built as early as in 15th century - and every single house just beautifully restored. Awesome! The whole old town is surrounded by a fully intact town wall with a number of gateways.

Dinkelsbuhl is a less traveled version of Rothenburg that seemed to have more German tourists than foreign ones. There is less to see than Rothenburg and the buildings are just a little less quaint. However, the restaurant seen is decent and the entrance into the town past the lake is very pretty. You won't need a full half day, but... More

Situated on the romantic road Dinkelsbühl is beautiful as Rothenburg. Definetely worth stopping for a short visit.

Nice and very clean historic town, if the cars would not be allowed within the city walls, you could imagine to be 100 years back. Absolutely worth visiting if you are in the premises

We walked around the city on the intact original wall of the city. Very cool. The city is well maintained and clean with parking just outside the walls of the city. Highly recommended.

Very walk-able town that surrounds you in history. Several gateway towers, beautiful hotels, restaurants, homes and churches. Great views from the top of the city wall. A map is available with suggested walking routes.

Beautiful small historical old town. So clean! No annoying advertisement pollution. Not as tourist oriented as the nearby city of Rothenburg. I highly recommend booking a walking tour.

We walked the entire historic part of Dinkelsbühl in just a little over an hour. Took lots of photos of 500 year old houses. There are many historic Restaurants and Hotels, as well as city gates and walls. The only drawback there is parking. You can only park 2 hours max inside the city walls with a "Parkscheibe". That fact... More

Travelling the Romantische Strasse from Würtzburg to Füssen begs the question: Which towns should we visit? - It is impractical to see all of them. Our 2 favorites were Rothenburg and Dinkelsbühl; but the this last one was the best. From the minute we saw the walls and the towers from a distance I was sure that this would be... More
