The historic old town of Dinkelsbühl
An almost unspoilt townscape dating back over 400 years, mighty churches, proud patrician houses and enchanting semi-timbered houses make Dinkelsbühl, “one of the closely packed and best preserved medieval towns in Germany”, say art historians. Today, the Gothic Minster of St. George, one of South Germany’s most impressive hall churches, still dominates an old-town ensemble of particular beauty. The ups and downs of the town’s 800-year history are brought to life in the ‘House of History, Dinkelsbühl – of War and Peace’. And there’s no better way to round off the day than with a romantic tour of the town with the ‘Night Watchman’.
