The High Castle is enthroned on the castle hill high above the town and adjacent to the Füssen tree garden. Today, the building is considered one of the most important secular buildings of the German late Gothic period and houses the branch gallery of the Bavarian State Painting Collections and the Municipal Gallery with numerous art values. But the inner courtyard of the High Palace with its extraordinary illusion paintings is also absolutely worth seeing. The battlements and towers of the late Gothic building are also impressive. The six-storey gate tower offers a unique view over Füssen and the surrounding Allgäu region. The chapel of St Vitus is also part of the High Castle and is considered the highest castle chapel in Germany.
