Dinkelsbühl, Germany: One of the Last Walled Towns on the Romantic Road in Germany

Dinkelsbühl is a small town full of character, found along the Romantic Road in Germany. One of the last remaining walled medieval towns, this beautiful area survived two world wars and so you will find it exactly as it has been for centuries. 

The Marktplatz and Weinmarkt are open spaces in the center of the town surrounded by steep gabled renaissance houses painted in shades of yellow, green, cream, pink and orange, which once belonged to the tradesmen who sold their wares in the market. Markets are still held in the center square every Wednesday and Saturday, as well as Christmas markets, Easter markets and other special event markets and festivals.

St George’s Minster stands on the corner of the Markplatz, with houses clustered around its flanks as if seeking divine protection. In sunny weather you can climb the tower of St George’s Minster for a spectacular view over Dinkelsbühl. 

The streets meander, seemingly with no set course, protected by the city walls on the circumference, while half-timbered houses with flower-boxed windows delight the eyes. 

The walls of these completely preserved historic old buildings can tell tales of bygone days and centuries past.
