Once your train pulls into the Alpine town of Füssen, you may wonder if you have stepped into a fairy tale! Nestled at the foot of the Alps, this charming town is the last stop along the Romantic Road, a popular travel route that begins in Würzburg. Without a doubt, the highlights of a trip to Füssen are the impressive castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. King Ludwig II constructed both of these majestic castles for his own use, and today visitors can experience both. The more famous of the two, Neuschwanstein, was a major source of inspiration for Walt Disney and has since become a symbol of the region. Füssen is also a great starting spot for truly spectacular Alpine hiking. Come enjoy fresh mountain air and breath-taking views in Füssen!
