“Memory lane”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I spent a lot of summers there as a kid.
Lots of nice old houses, nicely restored, butcher shops, weisswurst, cheese stores, cafes and puns. Lovely vistas. Long walks along the river Lech and the Forggensee. Cycling - you can rent a bike at the train station, with lots of opportunities for short and long rides to local lakes. Hourly train connection to Muenchen.

“Lovely old town - Good base for exploring”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Busy but small resort town ideally situated for the Allgauer Alps and visiting the castles of Neuschwanstein and Hoehenschwangau. Good public transport connections to the latter and to the various cable cars into the surrounding mountains for walks away from the crowds. Good selection of shops cafes and restaurants in the Altstadt, not just tourist traps, The worst part is the hordes of fellow tourists at Neuschwanstein but the tours are timed and very well organised

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

The Old Town area of Fussen is quite small and very easy to get around. There are some pretty houses, most with towering gables and some quaint streets. The church of the Hospital of the Holy Ghost, near the bridge over the Lech, has a colorful Rococo facade and is well worth a visit.

“Typical european old town”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

The old town is small but have a cozy atmosphere. There is shops, gastronomies, restaurants, and also ice cream of course. Many people come here to eat in the afternoon. I notice there are many bikers who passed the old town and they usually find some food here. There is little fountain in the old town center.
