Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Bavaria
Sightseeing Historic Sites Museums
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.
