Here, tradition meets modernity, rustic village inns meet experimental award-winning cuisine, old customs meet young events. Traditional breweries flourish alongside craft beer factories. The works of old masters inspire young artists.
Bavaria is bordered by the majestic Alps in the south and the blue ribbon of the Danube in the north. Singles, couples and families can hike to their heart's content here. Cycle along the numerous rivers and lakes, the old salt roads and through the hop gardens. Or experience shopping, art and culture in the city. With its mountains and pistes made from glittering powder snow, the region is a Mecca for all winter sports fans.
