Kloster in Füssen
City Guidance Füssen

You will explore the lovely city of Füssen, over 700 years old, which is the highest city in Bavaria in front of an impressive mountain backdrop (800m - 1,200m). The history goes back to the Romans (Via Claudia Augusta 46 n. BC) and had a high point under Emperor Maximilian I (around 1500). Two buildings are particularly eye-catching: the “High Castle”, former summer residence of the Prince-Bishops of Augsburg, towers high above the city. The bishops had a great influence on the history of the city, just like the Benedictine monks in the former monastery of St. Mang.

Duration: 1.5 hours
Fee: 95 euros / group up to 25 persons

Stadtmuseum Füssen
Guided Tour through the Local Heritage Museum

Founded around AD 840 and renewed around 1700, we visit the impressive baroque rooms.
You will not only learn how the Benedictine monks lived in Füssen, but you will also see many exhibits from the city's history. The library is particularly fascinating, although there are no original books, but is amazing from the room architecture. What does the hole in the floor mean? In the same way, the ballroom invites you to ponder - full of symbolism, which is not immediately apparent to everyone. The history of lute and violin making is shaped very attractive, since Füssen, the cradle of commercial musical instrument making, determined this branch of activity in the late Middle Ages.
