When I initially moved to Germany, the allure of castles and fairy tales dictated my travels. And let’s be honest, after living in Germany for almost five years, my love of castles and small German towns has only increased. I’m constantly on the hunt for the most beautiful German towns, especially the charming fairy tale towns of Germany. While some of the below towns might actually be the inspiration behind some of the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales, they all look like they could come directly out of a fairy tale with the colorful architecture, cobblestone streets, and winding alleyways. Below, my readers and I have outlined the best fairy tale towns in Germany!

Tübingen is considered one of Germany’s most photogenic cities. With a relatively small Old Town area, the entire town can be explored in half a day. However, don’t be alarmed by the small size – the town packs a punch with cobblestone streets and a stunning castle!
