Average time to visit

Southern Germany is a year-round destination. The Christmas markets are particularly fun and great for getting into the festive spirit. The city and countryside look particularly beautiful in spring and summer, and some of the best weather for sight-seeing can be had in autumn, when days are generally mild and clear.

Itinerary

Enjoy the chance to visit Bavaria's capital, Munich, with its historical buildings and galleries, and discover romantic castles and pretty villages before continuing to Baden Baden, the Black Forest's best known spa town, for a little pampering.

This suggested itinerary begins in Munich, the cultural and political center of Southern Germany. Here guests can immerse themselves in Bavarian history and traditions, visiting the palaces of the Wittelsbach kings of Bavaria and the museums and galleries of the old city. Of course no visit to Munich would be complete without a visit to a beer garden or beer hall, perhaps even the famous Hofbrauhaus. Sampling delicacies like white sausage with pretzels or pork knuckle with sauerkraut is not to be missed!

During your stay in Munich, we can arrange tours and excursions to suit your interests. For those with an interest in Bavarian history and castles, the Nymphenburg Place in the city comes highly recommended, as does a trip of less than two hours into the Bavarian Alps to see the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, King Ludwig's most ambitious project and the model for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

In the city, there's great shopping and some fantastic museums. It's an easy city to bike around, especially in the summer when the 'English Garden' is at its prettiest.

Other sites which families and couples will enjoy include the BMW museum, the Olympic complex, and the 'Deutsches Museum', Germany's largest and most 'hands-on' technology museum.

The next stop on this suggested itinerary is Baden-Baden, where guests can relax in style at one of the finest hotels in this charming Black Forest spa town. Form Baden-Baden it is possible to organize hiking and biking in the Black Forest, as well as trips to nearby historic cities like Heidelberg, Germany's oldest University city and Strasbourg, across the border in French Alsace.
