Munich Monday--Romantic Road, Dinkelsbühl

1:46:00 PM Brooke Neal 5 Comments

My travel bff, Ricky (Rick Steves), only gives Dinkelsbühl 2 stars, but I found the city absolutely charming!  Truth be told, it's more of the same if you've been following my blog the last week where I've been covering sites along the Romantic Road.  Dinklesbühl is less touristy than it's big sister Rothenburg, but just as delightful, as a matter of fact, I preferred the colorful architecture here better. A medieval wall surrounds the old town and several of the towers still exist.  I bought a ceramic village from a gift shop and each piece represents a building in town, I love it! 

Getting into the town is very easy--there is a large parking lot just outside the old wall and even better, a clean public toilet as well. Only about 2 hours north of Munich, it's another easy day trip, but small enough you could combine a couple of towns along the Romantic Road into the same day.  Enjoy our photographic walk through Dinkelsbühl.

  2. Seriously, how could a hamlet with the name DINKELSBUHL not be charming??!!?? Rick Steves is my main man when it comes to travel but...perhaps he needs to re-evaluate his rating on this one :)

  3. I love towns like this one! We were in Rothenburg years and years ago and I just couldn't get enough of the charm of the place.

  4. Very Charming and by the look of it you don't have to push your way past the crowds of tourist.
