Places of interest

Füssen Neuschwanstein Castle, Copyright FTM / Hubert Riegger, Füssen
The attractions of Füssen's romantic old quarter include Hohes Schloss Castle, the baroque monastery of St. Mang, medieval gabled houses and secluded squares. The former royal residences of Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle (4km), the Wieskirche Pilgrimage Church (25km), Oberammergau, Linderhof Palace (50km) and the Zugspitze mountain (60km) are easily reached from here.
Hohes Schloss Castle
The 13th century Hohes Schloss Castle above the old quarter was formerly a bishopric residence and summer retreat, and, in the 16th century, was one of Swabia's foremost medieval castles. The trompe d'oeil paintings are particular noteworthy. The "Rittersaal" served as a prestigious banqueting hall. Late-Gothic and Renaissance works of art are exhibited in the northern section.
Baroque parish church of St. Mang
The interior of the church, built over the burial site of Saint Magnus to plans by the baroque architect Herkomer, is adorned with delicate acanthus leaves, clouds with putto heads, shells and stylised flowers. The oldest part is the monks' chancel (1709). When it was consecrated in 1717, the whole room was stuccoed before the building was even finished.
Neuschwanstein Castle
Just four kilometres south of Füssen, high above the town and the lake and romantically framed by woods, is one of the world's best-known castles and the most-visited building in Germany: King Ludwig II's fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle.
