Füssen is a small town. It is very touristy with lots of tourist shops selling traditional Bavarian costumes and souvenirs. There are many restaurants serving a range of cuisine and some traditional looking bars.

January is a great time to visit Füssen. There are no crowds and views from the fortress walls are stunning.

Lots of tourists; hot wine; small stalls. It was filled with tourists, which surprised me until I remembered: Christmas holidays. Great setting with castles, old shops, etc.

We were instantly smitten with this lovely little bavarian town. It was extremely chilly, but the cafes were fantastic! We ducked into one and had some delicious soup and pastries. There are so many unique shops, something for everyone!

One of the most picturesque and cozy streets I've ever been. Great view on Alps. True Bavarian flavor. Real gem for the photographer!

It is not as spectacular as Rothenburg for it is quite a tiny town, but if you are in the region it is really worth to have a look around because it is very authentic. Beautifully enlightened at night and in wintertime you may feel like in medieval times when it is snowing.

People usually come to this town to see the royal castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau but Füssen is also nice and deserves spending a few hours to see the old city, castle and the riverside.

Pedestrian zone is nice to walk in the evening, well illuminated and views of the old buildings like the Monastry

Füssen is a tourist town filled with over-priced restaurants, tourist crap and shops that sell authentic Bavarian clothes made of cotton, leather, viscose and polyester. Despite all this, we really enjoyed our visit because this tourist trap was CHARMING and FRIENDLY. The outdoor cafe food was good, the architecture delightful…and we bought a Bavarian dirndl for my daughter to wear... More

Pleasant town for a stroll around, some souvenir shopping or to dine. Lots of resturants but seemed light on anything resembling beer hall/etc. Fussen is quite a small town, so i would not budget to much time for exploring the town itself. The surrounding area out from the town is very impressive.
