Bavaria travel guide

4.4
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Castles
Bavaria is the country's largest, and one of Europe's oldest continuously existing states. It was established as a duchy in 907. Situated in the southeastern corner of the country, Bavaria is probably what most non-Germans have in mind when they imagine a vacation in Germany. Ironically, much of this region is culturally more like the neighboring Austria and Switzerland. There's much more to Bavaria than just the stereotypical leather trousers (lederhosen), sausages, and beer festivals. This region is one of the country's most popular destinations for tourism and is full of places to visit. It's rich in medieval cities, dense forests, towering mountains, sparkling lakes, picturesque castles, and thriving villages. Bavarians are regarded as the proudest of all Germans. They're loyal to their regional roots and traditions. To soak up the particular local culture of the rural areas, explore the countryside's picture-perfect villages on foot or by bicycle.

A region offering some of the country's best skiing and hiking, Tirol serves as a window into Austrian mountain culture. This rugged area was once known as the Land of the Mountains for its many peaks, but it also boasts beautiful valleys, lakes, and rivers. Home to some competitions of the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympic Games, Tirol draws visitors to these same resorts today. Interact with Tiroleans, as the people of this province are called, who love their traditional food and clothing. In fact, you may even see men sporting lederhosen at one of the region's towns or famous mountainside resorts.
