Dinkelsbühl has no particular sights other than its own half-timbered medieval self.

It has pretty much been singled out as the one quaint little village to be sacrificed to the tour-bus schedule, and is therefore perpetually a bit crowded.

Fortunately, this hasn't stopped it from remaining charming in its simple way.

The sights of Dinkelsbühl

A horse-drawn carriage on the streets of DinkelsbühlIf you're taking the tour bus, you'll have some time here.

Spend it in the 15th-century Georgenkirche (climb the belltower for lovely views) and simply wandering the pretty, sobblestone streets lined with 16th-century gabled houses.

There's not much to see in Dinkelsbühl, and that's kind of the point.

Where to eat in Dinkelsbühl
