Dinkelsbühl Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 87 photos


The former Free Imperial Town of Dinkelsbühl with its unmistakable townscape is situated in the idyllic Wörnitz Valley. Today, the ring of town walls with its towers and gates and St George’s Minster are stone witnesses to the glories of medieval architecture.
