Pretty town with lots of character
Hard to get to.
Outstanding and beautiful!
The tower gate was the main entry from the north in the older days and that was back in the 1400's when it was built in 1390. It is one entry for Imperial Cities to be merchants of trade and food goods. There was once an entry to get to the mid section of the tower, but now it is closed off. The treppen gables on either side of the tower are...more
Dating back to 1378, this church was a dedication to three kings and now is only used as a memorial of wars. It has Spitzbogigen Fenstern and Walmdach. There is no entry from what I noted, and looks usually closed. It sits on the acess of a split street leading to Segringertor and also up to the Kornhaus along the wall.more
It is the gate on the west side of the town and dates back to about mid 1500's. It was damaged in Thirty Years War because the Swedes attacked this side most vigorously. They breached the wall here, and entered the town. The moat on the outside only held them back for some days. The tower was damaged but later rebuilt in 1655,more
This is the main street for the shopping and branches off with the Winemarket buildings. The end of the street leads to Rothenburger Tor, and is only a couple of blocks long. The Gastof Gold Hirsch is in the middle between some other retail shops and stores for locals to buy merchandisemore
This museum is very nice, and not publicized as much as it should be. Inside the Haus Geschichte which also is the town hall and the tourist information office is the museum taking up 1/2 of the large building. The museum itself shows a lot of history of the town from the 8th century and the Thirty Years War impact. They also have displays of...more

Nice, small hotel at the historic town centre of Dinkelsbühl, close to the town wall and Nördlinger...more
Pizzeria Sorrento is another dining place among those plenty of restaurants in Dinkelsbuehl's historic center. In regard of all the fancy places there with them pointing out the medieval flair and historic settings, I actually liked the simplicity of this Pizza place. Most important they too, like most of the restaurants there, have outdoor seats....more
Traditional Bavarian restaurant/ inn at the old town of Dinkelsbühl. The interior furnishings and wainscots, made of dark wood, add to the cosy atmosphere and revive a lovely 19th century atmosphere. The restaurant offers a variety of local gastronomic specialities like Swabian ravioli, dumplings, fresh fish, sausages, soups, etc. The menu also...more
This restaurant was just opened last year. I just checked on the web to make sure it made it and ,,,yep, it's still up and running. The inside is decorated in bare, modern decor. The day was too nice for indoor dining though, everyone was outside in the lovely terraced section. All four of us got different dishes and all of them were good. I had...more
On a cold day in Dinkelsbuhl we dipped into this charming hotel restaurant for a traditional German lunch. The owners/staff were so friendly and accommodating with my extremely limited German. The ambiance is traditional and cozy. The food schmeck sehr gut! (an attempt at me saying it tasted very good!) Right in the heart of the lovely village of...more
Coming to Dinkelsbuehl you will notice parking areas at the main entrances into the old town. In the case that you want to spend the day here it is recommendable to park on one of these parkings as parking in the old town is restricted by time. Here the parking needs a parking disc and the car has to be moved after 1 hours in the periode between...more

What a strange place! Inside, the front part of the store is a drugstore. Walk through it to the back and there are shelves upon shelves of Birkenstocks at prices I've not seen anywhere else. (and I've looked). Someone had told us about this store, otherwise we would not have known about it. It is very unassuming and we probably would have walked on by not knowing about the booty in the back...
What to buy: Birkenstocks. discounts given for multiple purchases. What a deal!
What to pay: 35 to 43 euro
The recorded history of Dinkelsbuehl begins around the 10th century when a fortress was erected at the intersection of two trade routes. Many structures, especially from the 15th and 16th centuries, are beautifully preserved.. Some of the sights to see in Dinkelsbuehl, include the Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus), St. George's Minster, the Almhouse,...more
Most of the town’s citizens embraced the protestant faith. In 1546 Emperor Charles V conquers the Schmalkaldischer Bund, the town is ruled by a Catholic council and St. George’s Minister is ceded to the Catholic minority. 1618 The Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) takes its toll and brings the town to the verge of economic ruin. Following its conquest...more

500 years ago people used to be way smaller than the average height of today. That's why door sills at medieval houses can be surprisingly narrow. So keep your eyes open and... always mind you head! ;)
The City's tourist office will provide you for a small fee with an inexpensive map that has a tour with explanations of the various buildings on the inside of the walls as well as an outside the walls tour. Either way, the buildings and views are very picturesque.
If you're travelling to Dinkelsbühl in Summer and you're not into Heavy Metal music, do avoid the 3rd weekend in August. That's when the annual Summer Breeze Open Air does take place. It's a pretty large event and it might affect your stay. The average number of this festival's visitors is around 40,000. Many of them will be staying at the festival...more
I enjoyed walking up and down the streets absorbing the small town atmosphere. The main square always has something lively going on and you can watch real Germans living their daily lives. I know it sounds kind of corny but I just felt like I was walking through a dream land. It is the Germany that everybody thinks of when building gingerbread...more
