From hiking in the Black Forest to driving the Romantic Road, here are some of the best day tours from Füssen.
There’s no better place to get a view of the Alps than Germany’s highest peak, Zugspitze, which towers 2,962 meters above sea level and straddles the Austrian-German border. Thankfully, you don’t have to climb to the summit – a cable car runs from the mountain town of Ehrwald to the top.
From whimsical hilltop castles to medieval villages that appear suspended in time, Germany’s Romantic Road serves up a slideshow of scenery worthy of its name. The country’s most popular tourist theme route starts out at Füssen and while a multi-day trip is needed to take in the whole 261-mile road.
Füssen is on the doorstep of two of the ‘Mad King’ King Ludwig’s most famous castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, both of which are hugely popular attractions.
