  • The largest city in Bavaria is Munich. Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is a city of art and beer. Breweries have strict standards on their processes, making it some of the finest brew in the world. But, along with this draw is the art held in the over 80 museums and galleries that showcase a long history of documenting culture through paintings and other mediums. What it is most known for is one of the ultimate parties, Oktoberfest. Locals don the green, brightly embroidered overalls and celebrate like few places on Earth. The traveler will find Munich to be the quintessential Bavarian experience in a city.



  • The second-largest city in Bavaria is Nuremberg. Once the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire, and the origin point of anti-Semite sentiment started by the Nazi party, Nuremberg has grown to become a better version of its previous self. The stonework of Gothic churches and well-preserved Nuremberg castle are sites that the traveler will love to take in. For those interested in the history of the National Socialist regime, Nazi party, the Documentation Center Nazi party Rally Grounds is a stark reminder of the past. These unfinished rally grounds were to be the ultimate staging ground for the party, left unfinished and standing as an example of politics gone wrong. Modern Nuremberg is beautiful, noting its own history with an educational nod to the future and ready for the traveler.



  • Another location of note is the village of Berchtesgaden. This Alpine village sits at the foot of Mount Watzmann, just along the border to Austria. Once home to Hitler’s mountain retreat, Mount Watzmann is the third-largest mountain in Germany. Berchtesgaden is a traditional Alpine village with attractions such as salt mines, Lake Königssee , and the Eagle’s Nest. The Eagle’s Nest (Kehlsteinhaus in German) is a Nazi building at the summit of an outcrop overlooking Berchtesgaden. Though, visiting the Eagle’s Nest may depend on the weather conditions. This village has a great view of German mountains and forests, and represents a traditional Alpine village.
