Dinkelsbühl in many respects is more authentic in the romantic road. About 45 percent of Rothenburg the most famous city of this road was damaged in World War II, while Dinkelsbühl and nearby Nördlingen escaped relatively unscathed. Dinkelsbühl is a dreamy little village that dates to at least the 10th century, when sections of the wall first went up. Today, people are not allowed on top of the fortification but they can walk around its perimeter, which includes 18 towers and four gates.This is the reason why i choose to sleep here. I travel with a friend and before leaving for Munich we saw this very nice hotel on the web site www.booking.com at the price of 70 euro per person for a single room but we didn't know at that time if we would be there for the third night so we decided to book at the last moment. When I called to verify the availability of the rooms I found the answering machine I left my phone number and the owner of the hotel called me for the reservation. So i can tell that the staff is very kind also in this aspect. I save money for a booking reservation. When we arrived we found free two double rooms very big, clean and with new and large bathrooms. The furniture was old time style in line with the ancient village and very romantic typical of bavarian hotels..
It was a surprise!The staff is very kind and always ready to help you and to listen to your requests. good food at the restaurant. silence at night to sleep confortable. a very nice village that seems to come out from a fairy tale. Any corner of Dinkensbul is special for taking photos.
So i include in this section also some nice pictures of the village because many times one choose a place where to sleep also for the beauty of the town or small village. and this is veri charming and enchanting. Marvellous at night going out for a walk but it would be necessary more lights beacuse of darkness to take good night scenary pictures.
There is a special event with the watchman.Every evening from Easter to Halloween, a man clad in black walks the cobblestoned streets of Dinkelsbühl, clutching a lantern in one hand and a medieval weapon known as a halberd in the other.
"When he goes on his rounds, he sings and many, many people follow him.
In 1632, during the Thirty Years’ War, the Swedish army was poised to plunder and burn Dinkelsbühl. As the legend goes, a young girl led a gaggle of kids out through one of the gates and toward the soldiers. The children fell to their knees and begged the commander to spare their hometown, which he did, so touched was he by their courage.
The watchmen who make the nightly rounds talk and sing about the children as part of their routine.
Good breakfast not plenty of many things but in line with the price. We paid only 60 euro for the single rooms included breakfast an excellent price for the services offered and confort of the hotel.A very good location position to achieve many other villages of the romantic road. Don't forget to visit Rothemburg ob der tauber, Nordlingen Harburg and Wurzburg. The last very beautiful and full of history with Marienberg fortress and the wonderful palace of the bishops.
