We knew Dinkelsbuhl to be one of the striking historic towns along the Romantic Road, but without the hoards of tourists experienced in Rothenburg. The tourist information centre brochure, available in English, gave routes for walks inside and outside the town walls, as well as...More

Dinkelsbuhl is a lovely little town on the romantic road. It’s quite touristy but has more of a real feel than Rothenburg. There are nice shops and streets to wander around in and feel like you’re in another century.
