Upper Bavaria travel guide

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.
