Travelling Bavaria In Germany In A Week

Bavaria is unlike any other part of Germany. It has all the good things (that a tourist would want), unlike other German regions. It’s cleaner, more laid back, amazingly diverse, has enough small towns to wander around and yes, more beer than one can imagine. From towns like Munich that are popular as the beer capital of the world to others like Rothenburg that has always remained an inspiration to artists, Bavaria has something for everyone. During my recent trip to Germany, I got a chance to spend some time in Bavaria and Bavaria alone, thanks to the German National Tourism Office (GNTO) in India that invited me for a one week long media-trip. It all happened when GNTO asked if I’d be interested in a self-planned solo trip to anywhere in Germany. Since I’d been to other regions in Germany during my previous two visits, Bavaria turned out to be a natural preference. How Many Days You Need For Bavaria Well, if you want to completely absorb Bavaria, you need at least a month. And …

Exploring The Medieval Town Of Rothenburg: An Ideal Travel Guide

Somewhere beyond the usually marked trail, Germany harbours a secret. A place where the morning sun glitters like gold, where half-timbered houses dot a timeless valley.  A town that happens to be one of those rare upbringings of time, where the romantic flair of the Middle Ages and Renaissance still exist. A town, which, with its less than 10k local Germans take you back in time, while keeping a perfect harmony with the present. I remember how when I was planning for my itinerary to spend about a week in Bavaria, Rothenburg was high on my list. And to honestly admit it, I had no idea about its history, the people who make it so beautiful or any fact about the town whatsoever. It was the colourful Google Images of Rothenburg that happened to be my original fascination — the old town square, the many high-timbered houses, the medieval cobblestone streets, all of which set a very fairytale-like image of the town in my head. Of course, in an ideal world, Rothenburg is a kind …

An Ideal 3-Day Travel Itinerary For Munich

While it is true that Berlin – the capital city of Germany – is often considered as the most favorable destination for young travellers to visit in Germany, and is hyped all around the globe as a party town, the hipster hotspot and the place to be right now, Munich is no less a secret haven for backpackers and young travellers alike. I found Munich a more original destination, needless to say, a place that is more than the typical German clichés. So if you’re going to be spending some time in Germany, Munich is a must-see and a fantastically convenient hub from which to easily explore different attractions and sights in the greater Bavaria region and even the neighbouring Austria. And to tell you honestly, you need a week or more to really see Munich, but I understand it’s not possible for everyone. So if you’re short with time, this guide will give you enough ideas to whet your appetite and leave Munich with many unforgettable memories. This is not just any other Munich …

Top Tourist Attractions In Munich Not To Miss

Visiting Munich? Don’t miss these top tourist attractions! Munich was in my bucket-list for long for all the good things I had heard about it from fellow travellers. Though it was true that most people who adored Munich adored it for its annual beer festival, I found there’s still a lot more to the city of Munich than the drinking steins of beers and going crazy during Octoberfest. Munich is host to a beautiful historic city centre, many serene public-parks (where one can even surf) vibrant beer gardens and some hearty German food — no wonder, being the third largest town in Germany and the largest in South Germany, Munich has a lot to offer. And what makes it better than any other town (even better than Berlin — the rebel free-city of Germany, so to speak) is its posher, cleaner and more well-behaving look.
