If you want to unwind at your own pace, wander through the old cobbled streets of Lindau and Fussen, which will transport you back to the olden days. Fussen is home to an impressive castle and works of art at the end of Bavaria’s ‘Romantic Road.’

With the Bavarian Alps just around the corner, Fussen is a great place to base yourself if you want to explore the region. Lindau nestles on the shores of Lake Constance and is one of the most picturesque towns in Germany. Take a cultural tour around the streets of the old town or head to the lakeside promenade for a stroll to the stunning harbour. Enjoy a guided boat tour.
