Upper Bavaria travel guide

4.5
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Bodies of Water
Upper Bavaria is a colorful, unparalleled patchwork of rolling hills, extensive plains, powerful rivers, and almost 200 lakes. The region is steeped in history and tradition. It's home to many mysterious dark forests, picturesque meadows, winding roads, and jagged mountain peaks. Upper Bavaria seems to possess that atmosphere of magic usually reserved for fairy tales. This is a land of festivals--never more so than in late summer and early fall. Then, the weather is at its most favorable, and the beer gardens are in full swing. The folks living in this region are known for having a good balance of hard work, socializing, and relaxing. You can explore the cities and their popular attractions on foot or by car, such as Munich's Bavarian National Museum and Konigsplatz. However, to absorb the local culture of the rural areas, do your sightseeing by bicycle. Then you can take advantage of the seemingly endless network of bike trails crisscrossing the countryside.

Lower Bavaria travel guide

Churches · Landmarks · Historic Sites
Originally a duchy created in 1255, Lower Bavaria is mostly noted for its scenic attractions along the Danube River and the Bavarian Forest. This wooded, low-mountain region extends along the Czech border. The area's patchwork of landscapes stretches from the Danube in the north to the Inn river in the south. The diverse terrain in between suits a variety of outdoor activities. You can explore Lower Bavaria on foot or by bicycle via an extensive network of footpaths and bike trails. The region's rivers also invite sightseeing by kayak or canoe. This is a land of vibrant local festivals, medieval churches and castles, and picturesque towns brimming with history and tradition, all of which add color and interest to visitor itineraries. As an added bonus, Lower Bavaria is the world's leading producer of hops--so it's only natural that the region would have its fair share of beer gardens and breweries.
