We stayed in the Dinkelsbuhler Kunst-Stuben for two nights. I chose Dinkelsbuhl over Rothenburg o.b.T because we wanted the same general ambiance but something a little quieter and less touristed. I chose this guest house because it was inside the city wall yet had on-site parking (more on that in a bit). We loved this guest house. It’s owned and run by a retired engineer, Herr Arthur Appelberg, and his wife. Herr Appelberg is also a renowned local artist and the guest house is also his art studio and shop.
This guest house is magnificently quaint with an real old world feeling. The bedroom was very generous with windows on two sides of the room so cross ventilation was nice. The furniture felt antique (in a good way) with the king bed being a four-poster canopy bed.
The hotel has recently leased space to the restaurant next door to operate a beer garden. That being said, they will be losing their on-site parking. They did say, however, that parking in the city lot outside the wall was free and it’s a really short walk. I would suggest asking for a room at the back of the hotel if beer garden noise might be of concern.
