This is a must when in Fussen. The grounds are large and well kept and even though closed to visitors in Winter, you are able to walk around the castle and into the courtyard. The castle is beautiful with lots of paintings around Windows and...More

It was time to go up, as the Hohes Schloss, in English High Castle was on a mountain. We were quite impressed with the numerous hand-painted illustrations and windows. I especially liked the clock tower. So colorful! From up there we had a great view...More

This epitomises Fussen and its history, it's a beautiful building. I liked the fact that it was mainly hand-painted, something you only see when you're close up – the red-bricks are not real :-)

The old Fussen center is small and you can walk around for about a hour. Just some of the walls are open to the public. Walk around and see the Schloss from the big yard.

We wound up here after walking the grounds and finding the entrance to the gallery. It offers great views of Fussen and exhibits consisting of decorative paintings. Definitely recommend a visit.

Fascinating look at the old Bishop's palace. Tours are in German, but you can get an English sheet for a selguided tour.

An atmospheric courtyard with some fine 15th century wall paintings. We didn't go into the Gallery but did go into the tiny chapel which was very simple.

We just walked around, and did not pay for the museum. The chapel was interesting and the view was great from the walls.
