A restful haven.....

I think I am one of many who has always regarded Fuessen as the place you stay at when you want to visit Neuschwanstein. Anyone who has been there however, knows full well that Fuessen is a wonderful destination in its own right. It is a lovely mix of interesting things to do and a place of rest and relaxation all rolled up in one.

I am now kicking myself......

At least I didn't race down from Munich to see the Castles and return the same day. I did stay overnight in Fuessen. My only wish now is that I had spent two nights there, so I could have sailed on Lake Forgensee and had a good look at the Monastery or taken a short bus ride to Steingaden to see the Wieskirche. The options are endless in that part of the world.

My favourite pastime....

After I had been to Neuschwanstein, I did have some good daylight hours left to do my favourite thing, which is of course, to roam the streets just to soak up the surroundings. In Fuessen I could do that to my heart's content. I loved it.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Compact and easy to get around.
  • Cons:None that spring to mind.
  • In a nutshell:Take the time to have a good look.

      Hi Ingrid, Thanks for visiting my Fuessen and Dinkelsbuehl pages. Both are favourite towns of mine.

    Thank you, Kate, for bringing back memory about this wonderful destination in its own right inspite of Neuschwanstein close to it.

    The Schloss - I saw it today on my way back, but didn't stay for a couple of hours, drove home instead. Ah, yes, it is a good hub for the area, but... take my word: next time 4 days southern Bavaria and approx. 16 rokoko churches, that is my offer. And we would stay at Wies :-)
