The rustic charm, ideal location, and affordability were just a few of the things that attracted me to Hotel Hirsch. Once I arrived, I knew I'd made the right choice on where to stay in Füssen.

Where to Stay in Füssen?
Arriving at Hotel Hirsch
After being given a quick tour of the lobby and commons area downstairs, I settled into my cozy single room. The heat radiating through the room made it hard not to curl up in bed, so I opened the window to watch the snow fall and breath the crisp, mountain air. It wasn't long before I was ready to head out to explore Füssen and find some lunch!
Dining at Hotel Hirsch
Service in the Hotel Hirsch restaurant was stellar which helped this solo traveler feel right at home. The lovely dining hall is perfect for romantic meals for two but cozy enough for solo diners to fit in well. Traditional Bavarian dishes, as well as seasonal specials, make up the menu offerings. And the local beer was crisp and clean, making it hard to say no to a second.
A Cozy Night's Sleep
Breakfast and a View
Back upstairs it was time to explore before leaving Hotel Hirsch. I wanted to see the rooftop terrace even if it was covered in snow. And, boy, was I glad I did. Perched just above the rooftops of Füssen, the rooftop terrace gives visitors a pristine view of the city and the surrounding Alps. Summer evenings on the terrace are probably close to perfection. Standing there breathing the cold morning air while admiring Füssen from above, I knew I'd made a perfect choice. Hotel Hirsch will always have a special place in my heart and the only hotel in Füssen for me.
