Bayern or Bavaria in English, is the biggest state in Germany. For me, it is also the most beautiful of all the 16 states in this country. There are a lot of fantastic sights and events that take place in Bavaria every year. Here are some of the best in the region!
Oktoberfest in Munich
If you want to witness the biggest festival in the world, I would suggest that you start booking now for your flights and hotels in Munich. Bavaria’s capital city is always flooded with locals and tourists from around the world during the Oktoberfest celebration. This event is a very important part of Bavarian culture having been held since 1810. Around six million people are visiting this festival every year.
Also take the chance to explore Munich city and its surroundings. For sure, you will love it there and will enjoy your visit to one of the best destinations in Europe.
This fairy-tale castle commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria has been a magnet to tourists around the world. Neuschwanstein Castle was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. It is considered to be one of the most-photographed buildings in Germany. This palace has a Romanesque Revival architecture and is located on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria.
The Residence in Würzburg
It is listed in the the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1981, including its Court Gardens and Residence Square. The Residence in Würzburg has one of the finest Baroque architecture in Europe. No wonder it was dubbed by Napoleon as the “nicest parsonage in Europe”.
The old city of Wuerzburg is also worth to explore. Don’t miss the Old Main Bridge and Fortress Marienberg in your sights to see.
