As we arrived in Füssen in the evening, we were only able to see the exterior of the buildings. Happily, however, the courtyards were left open for people to wander through even though interiors were closed. Unique trompe l'oeil window paintings make this building an...More

While wandering around Fussen we came upon the Hohes Schloss and only strolled into the courtyard to admire the castle's exterior from here, which was quite lovely and picturesque.

The day of our visit coincided with the weekend of the "Middle Ages Festival" (last w/e in June). So Fussen and the grounds of the castle were awash with activity, including a street procession from the castle to the centre. Inside the castle walls itself...More

We walked up to the castle- it was an easy walk that was enjoyable. We paid the nominal fee to get into the museum. The museum itself is interesting with a cool green fireplace. The best is climbing up into the tower to see the...More

Wasn't open when i visited on middle of March, 2017. Quite disappointed, thus, not really to see around in town area too. Very dated. So move on to Neuschwanstein instead.

Didn't go inside but strolled around the grounds, gardens and any small parts that were open. The castle is notable for the illusionistic paintings on the facades that date back to 1499. These are quite unique apparently, in German late-Gothic architecture.
