Dinkelsbühl has always been regarded as a magnet for holiday-makers and people seeking rest and relaxation. The town offers about 800 options for overnight accommodation, combined with a hospitality steeped in tradition. Tennis, swimming, saunas, water treading, riding, hiking and fishing give visitors the opportunity to enjoy a restorative, yet active holiday.
The former free city of Dinkelsbühl is located at the heart of the Romantic Road, in Romantic Franconia. The townscape has been largely unchanged for over 400 years and presents imposing churches and impressive half-timbered, patrician houses. Dinkelsbühl is one of Germany‘s best preserved towns from the late Middle Ages.
The Kinderzeche festival in July is the highlight of the annual events' calendar and provides a wide-ranging programme of entertainment. During the 30 Years War (1618 - 1648) broad parts of Germany were destroyed, while the medieval city of Dinkelsbühl was spared. This is because of the children of Dinkelsbühl begged favour with the Swedish colonel. For the past 100 years or so Dinkelsbühl has celebrated its delivery with a festival where the whole story is performed again. Even today the city continues to show its grateful appreciation for their help by giving coloured bags of sweets to all the children taking part in the procession.
