Pin It

Quite possibly the prettiest town on the Romantic Road, Dinkelsbuhl is a walled Medieval fairytale setting for the Spitalhof Christmas market – rows of glowing chalets set out beneath spreading trees in the enchanting main square.

Enjoy gluhwein and aniseed cookies as you wander among the arts, crafts and culinary delights on sale and visit the Nativity scene. There's also a brass band, carol singers and a generous Santa Claus who hands out chocolate, fruit and nuts to the children.

There's still a magical feel to this place despite its increasing popularity; it's simply traditional and wonderful.
