Often referred to as ‘Germany's most beautiful old town’ and ‘dream place of the day’, Dinkelsbühl is a picturesque historic town in Central Franconia in Germany. Here, you can wander down medieval streets, lose yourself in narrow alleyways, and enjoy some of the best-preserved half-timbered houses in Germany. The old town encircled by a fortification that is decorated with 20 impressive towers and gates. In this Collection, we present eight walks which explore this gem in Franconia and its beautiful surroundings.

The Tours are leisurely walks through and around Dinkelsbühl old town which are perfect for a romantic evening stroll or early morning start. The magical walks transport you back in time. It’s easy to imagine life goneby or a farrier hammering horseshoes around the next corner.

The landscapes outside of the town are also a fairytale. A dense network of paths wind through Mutschach Forest, guiding you through ancient beech trees, oaks, and spruces and deep into nature. You can leave everyday life behind as you follow the Wörnitz River as it winds past numerous lakes and through gently-rolling hills. Dinkelsbühl is a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxed hike.
