The Best of Bavaria

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.

Neuschwanstein Castle

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.
