Best Western Plus Hotel Füssen
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- The town is the southernmost point of Germany's Romantic Road, and is surrounded by Alpine lakes and towering peaks in a scenic corner of Bavaria
- Neuschwanstein Castle is less than 10 minutes' drive away, as is Hohenschwangau, the childhood residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria
- The colourful buildings and delightful shops and cafés of Füssen's impeccably preserved medieval old town are an easy five-minute stroll from the hotel
The medieval town of Füssen is surrounded by lakes on the edge of the Bavarian Alps, close to the Austrian border. It is the southernmost point of Germany's Romantic Road, a 350-kilometre-long route that passes through forests and mountains, linking picturesque castles and historical towns along the way.
Best Western Plus Hotel Füssen provides an ideal base from which to explore the charming old town, which is only a few minutes' walk away. It towers over the River Lech, and its landmarks include the High Castle, which is home to a branch gallery of the Bavarian State Collection of paintings, and the Baroque complex of St. Mang's Abbey, a Benedictine monastery founded in the ninth century. You can take a stroll along the quaint streets and browse for souvenirs in the shops, or taste cakes and pastries in a local café.
The hotel is close to both Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles. Neuschwanstein Castle, built in a Romanesque Revival style high atop a hill, became the model for Disney's Sleeping Beauty castle. It was commissioned by King Ludwig II, who spent his childhood in nearby Hohenschwangau Castle. Both sights are within 10 minutes' drive of the hotel.
The hotel has a bar and a restaurant -- weather permitting, you can order a drink or a meal on the outdoor patio. There is also a fitness room and a sauna. Rooms have free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and bathrobes and slippers.
