With cultural and culinary offerings, the cities of Bavaria tempt visitors with all kinds of historic sights and attractions: The Viktualienmarkt in Munich has been a vibrant market for more than 200 years. It is still a popular meeting point in the state capital. At Tiergärtnertorplatz, one of the most beautiful preserved sites in Nuremberg, the Bieramt invites visitors to linger over tasty Franconian beers. And in the Heilig-Geist-Spital at Roten Tor in Augsburg, the lid of the Augsburger Puppenkiste (Marionette Theatre) was first lifted almost 70 years ago. The puppet theatre is famous far beyond the state boundary.
