Munich, Germany — 4 nights

Village of a Million People

Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions.
Stadtmuseum im Fembo-Haus (City Museum at Fembo House) and Museum Industriekultur will appeal to museum buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Hausberg and Schlossmuseum Murnau. Explore Munich's surroundings by going to Munter-Haus (in Murnau), Garmisch-Classic (in Garmisch-Partenkirchen) and Wallbergbahn (in Rottach-Egern). There's still lots to do: view the masterpieces at Kunsthalle Munich, see the interesting displays at Valentin Musaum, pause for some serene contemplation at Burgersaalkirche, and hit the slopes at Laber.
