FÜSSEN – Hohen Schloss

The town of Füssen is charmingly located on the edge of the Bavarian Alps, framed in by imposing high mountain peaks and an idyllic lake district.The Hohes Schloss (High Castle) is Füssen’s landmark, towering over a maze of narrow lanes. This is the former summer residence of the prince bishops of Augsburg and one of Swabia’s largest and best preserved late gothic castle complexes. The living quarters today house a branch gallery of the Bavarian State Collections of Paintings. The facades in the castle courtyard are adorned with illusionist paintings that delude the viewer into seeing oriels, window frames and molded corners.
