Dinkelsbühl - worth a trip at any time of the year

A picture-book cityscape – for over

400 years almost unchanged! Stately church buildings and rich half-timbered architecture, quiet streets and lively squares characterize the old town. Towers and gates surround one of the "best preserved medieval towns in Germany", which a weekly magazine voted the most beautiful old town in Germany and ennobled as an insider tip and "time travel destination". In Dinkelsbühl you will not be greeted by scenery, but by the lived present.




As a visitor, experience the city in spring,

when the vegetation conjures up its light May green, in summer when the Wörnitz lido invites you to cool off and the cafés and restaurants lure you in for delicious ice cream and cool cyclists. Autumn is a magical time of year for a colorful stroll around the city walls, and in winter the snow lays a fairytale, silent blanket over the city's medieval rooftops. Not only thousands of lights shine at the Advent and Christmas market, but also the eyes of visitors from near and far.

Allow yourself to be seduced on a journey through the seasons in the medieval, formerly free imperial city of Dinkelsbühl.

Spring at the Wörnitz

The little river Wörnitz accompanies the city wall on the east side of Dinkelsbühl's old town. A well-developed footpath and cycle path leads from the Rothenburger Weiher via the Wörnitzinsel to the Stadtmühle along the banks of the Wörnitz. It offers beautiful views of the riverside vegetation and the city's gates and towers.

The Rothenburg pond in summer

Starting from the Rothenburger Tor, a beautiful footpath leads along the banks of the Rothenburger Weiher. It is embedded in an idyllic park with rose beds, park benches and a pavilion. From here, the visitor has a wonderful view of the mighty city wall. The park ranger's cottage and the digestion tower with the kennel cottage formed the defense system at the north-west corner of the city enclosure. This panorama is one of the most beautiful and well-known motifs in the city.

Summer in the city

In the warm season, the restaurants and cafés place tables, benches and chairs on the historic pavement in front of their front doors and serve their guests Franconian specialties, cool drinks, coffee and cake or delicious ice cream specialties. The Wörnitz lido, one of the last river bathing establishments, invites young and old visitors to splash around and swim.

Walk in the park - an autumn walk for lovers

Dinkelsbühl on a clear autumn day - cloudless sky, bright sunshine and colorful foliage. A walk from the Rothenburger Weiher along the city wall is not only a pleasure for lovers.

Winter magic

In winter, when there is snow, the old town is enchanted. Silence has settled over the streets, alleys and squares. The hustle and bustle of summer is far away. Visitors can now experience the character of the old city without quick distractions. A walk between the rows of houses or along the Wörnitz leads to a contemplative experience of history and nature.

    Wer bei einem Tripp über die Romantische Straße einen Halt in Dinkelsbühl plant, sollte dies unbedingt auf den Juli legen. Denn dann wird dort die sogenannte „Kinderzeche“ gefeiert. Ein Fest, dass einen in die Zeit des Dreißigjährigen Krieges versetzt. Damals war die Stadt von den Schweden belagert. Alles sah aussichtslos aus, doch dann konnte die Belagerung durch den mutigen Einsatz der Kinderlohre gerettet werden. Diese versammelte alle Kinder der Stadt um mit ihnen um Gnade zu flehen. Und tatsächlich es funktionierte! Der Anführer der Schweden lies sich erweichen und verschonte die Stadt. Seit damals feiert die Stadt diese Sage immer am 3. Montag im Juli. Die Geschichte von damals wird nachgespielt und durch die Straßen ziehen Menschen mit Kostümen. Für Jung und Alt ein Spektakel!
