The town of Dinkelsbühl is especially known for its architecture from the Middle Ages. The town has many historic buildings, including the Dinkelsbühl wine market with the Renaissance town hall and the armory, which now serves as a museum for the children's mine. The Dinkelsbühl city wall and old entrances to the city such as the Nördlinger Tor, the Segringer Tor, the Bäuerlinsturm or the Wörnitztor in Dinkelsbühl are also worth seeing.

Dinkelsbühl's children's colliery

Dinkelsbühl is also known for its festivals and events, such as the annual Kinderzeche, a children's and folk festival where the town's school children put on a festival play on the weekends around the third Monday in July. They then parade through the city on these weekends and Mondays. In addition, children and adults perform round dances. The children's mine goes back to a school festival in the 17th century. It is reminiscent of a legend according to which Dinkelsbühl's children saved the city from the Swedes in the Thirty Years' War. Since 2016, the Kinderzeche has been listed as part of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in Germany.

Beautiful old town in Germany

Photos are the best way to show how beautiful the old town of Dinkelsbühl is. That's why we made a video that shows you the old town and the city wall.

The Dinkelsbühl town wall

Dinkelsbühl's main attractions are the old town and the city wall. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that the old town has been completely preserved. Many houses in the old town are older than 350 years. At the same time, the old town of Dinkelsbühl is surrounded by a city wall. This goes back to the 14th century. At that time they were built because the original wall ring of the Staufer was too small. The city wall with its 14 watchtowers and the four city gates, which were completed in 1435, is two and a half kilometers long. We park our car in the parking lot at Schwedenwiese. There you can park well near the Dinkelsbühl old town. From there we walk past the Dreigangsturm and enter the old town of Dinkelsbühl through the Wörnitz Tor.

Dinkelsbuehl Churches

Dinkelsbühl Sights are the Minster of St. George on the market square and the St. Paul's Church in the Carmelite monastery. This owes its existence to the spelled farmer.

They finally built the Carmelite monastery on his farm.

The "pretzel window" is definitely worth seeing. Its tracery is a donation of the Dinkelsbühl baker's trade and an example of medieval "sponsoring".
