Top 5 travel tips

The dreamlike skyline of Regensburg in Eastern Bavaria
The dreamlike skyline of Regensburg in Eastern Bavaria

1st Würzburg is the metropolis of Lower Franconia and enjoys a worldwide reputation for its fascinating baroque buildings. The residence near the historic city centre, built according to the plans of the famous architect Balthasar Neumann, is just as fascinating as the pilgrimage church "Visitation of the Virgin Mary" known as the "Käppele" and the Marienberg fortress enthroned above the old town on the opposite side of the Main River.

The old town of Bamberg, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, is considered to be the largest historic town settlement in Germany to have survived since the Middle Ages. Here you will not only find the historic imperial cathedral with the famous "Bamberger Reiter", but also a multitude of unique sacral and secular buildings from the 13th to 18th centuries. The historic old town on the two arms of the Regnitz has a unique flair and stands for typical Franconian cosiness.

The state capital Munich has unique attractions such as the historic old town around the town hall and Marienplatz, the famous Liebfrauenkirche and Nymphenburg Castle with its magnificent park. The English Garden also deserves a visit. Munich's cultural, leisure and shopping facilities are legendary.

4 The castles of King Ludwig II are symbolic of German tourism in general, especially abroad. Especially the "fairytale castle" Neuschwanstein not far from Füssen, but also the New Castle Herrenchiemsee and the fascinating "Royal Villa" Linderhof Castle near Ettal offer unforgettable impressions.

5 A unique highlight for a summer bathing holiday are the Upper Bavarian lakes. In addition to the "big" lakes (Starnberger See, Ammersee and Chiemsee) which can be easily reached from Munich, the idyllic "small" Alpine lakes such as Eibsee, Funtensee and Königsee are particularly fascinating.

Magnificent property

In Schwangau, near Füssen, the Neuschwanstein Castle, which is visited by more than two million visitors every year, is enthroned impressively. The present palace dates back to 1537 and has a typical yellow façade. You can explore the magnificent premises during a guided tour.

A history rich in tradition

The Bavarian National Museum is located in Munich and presents cultural and art historical collections on an area of 13,000 square metres. Among the important exhibits are rare sculptures, precious paintings and ivory panels.

Awesome temple complex

Since 1842, the Wallhalla memorial has been one of Bavaria's architectural highlights. In Donaustauf an der Donau famous personalities, deeds or groups are honoured with 130 busts and 65 commemorative plaques.

Heavenly Basilica

With four mighty towers, the Bamberg Cathedral St. Peter extends into the old town of Bamberg and is one of the distinctive buildings of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the old town. The historic church from the 11th century houses the Bamberg rider and the adjacent diocesan museum.

Moving reminder site
