Elegant and Dignified Structures

They have many ornate and beautiful buildings along the streets. The town was unscathed during WWII; leaving the great buildings intact. The Swedes attacked and conquered the town during the Thirty Years War. By 1534, the majority of residents were Protestants, but the town became a "mixed" administration under the Treaty of Westphalia. That allowed it to be a Free Mixed Imperial City for trade and status of commerce. That finally ended in 1802, and Bavaria took control of the region in consolidation.

All streets lead to the center

Dinkelsbuhl is real active town for the locals and not many tourists come here versus other towns along the Romantic Road. There are the cobblestone streets and German restaurants spread within the retail shops. There is not a lot of museums for an all day trip. It may take 2-4 hours to take in the main sites and get a bite to eat.

View of typical buildings on the street

Every strasse branching out form the core by Munster St. Georg has very unique buildings and some of the most decorated I noted in our travels.

    no tips or pics of the walls or gates? I loved this town when driving around visiting Bavarian Christmas markets and was great to walk around the city walls
