In an eventful era of more than a thousand years, Dinkelsbühl, situated on the ancient Roman Road, which was later the trading route between Augsburg and Wurzburg, felt the pulsation of German history from the immediate neighborhood. Its town-wall, still in good state of preservation, dates back to the 15th century — the first walling-in having taken place as far back as A. D. 928. An atmosphere of immense charm surrounds the broad winding streets and lanes with their picturesque nooks and courtyards, over-towered commandingly by the huge, but un-pretentious roof of the St. Georges Church, the most beautiful modern Gothic Churches in South Germany, which was completed in 1499. In effective contrast to its dignified greatness is the particularly artistic "Deutsches Haus", rich in architectural wood-carving, which dates back to the year 1543 and numbers amongst the most precious edifices of timber framework, which give the brightly colored townlet its enchanted raiment
