Located in the southeast of Germany, the Free State of Bavaria is the largest and most prosperous in the country. Its capital anb main gateway, Munich, is a city with a dynamic and attractive centre and a must for anyone who wants to holiday in Bavaria. Our proposal focuses on the alpine zone of Bavaria. Located in the south of the state bordering with Austria (Salzburg and Tyrol), the area is known as "Upper Bavaria". It is an area of mountain landscapes, lakes, peaks, forests and alpine meadows. Here are the country's highest peaks, including the famous Zugspitze peak, whose summit (almost 3,000 meters high) is accessible by cog railway. A holiday in Upper Bavaria means enjoying beautiful mountain sceneries, charming towns and traditions that still existing in each party and popular event. It is an ideal place to either walk or cycle (excellent marked trails) and also to relax enjoying its cosy villages and its gastronomy. But it is also a great place for sightseeing and visit the famous Castles of King Ludwig II or cities like Munich and Salzburg. The following itinerary contains suggestions for tours and excursions you can do during your stay in Upper Bavaria:
Day 1: Flight to Bavaria.

Day 2: Berchtesgaden Valley.
The Berchtesgaden valley hides some of the most impressive nature highlights in Germany. The city has a medieval layout and its surroundings are spectacular: Lake Königsee (within the National Park), the views from the scenic route Rossfeld and breathtaking landscapes from the top of the “Eagle´s Nest”, a mythical place where Hitler had a holiday home.
Day 3: The Castles of Ludwig II.
Crossing the Austrian Tyrol via its capital, Innsbruck, you will reach Garmisch. The city is at the foots of the Zugspitze, the highest peak of the country, which overlooks one of the best views in the Alps (you can reach the peak by train or cable car).

Then you can see two examples of medieval Bavaria: Burghausen with its splendid fortress-palace and the medieval town of Wasserburg.
Day 5: Munich, capital of Bavaria.
A very short driving-time from Upper Bavaria there is the city of Munich. Well known beacuse its breweries and the beautiful Marienplatz (Town-hall with its clock). But Munich has much more: the galleries and the German Museum are among the best in Germany. The Palace, the Residence and the Olympic Ring show the history of the city.
Day 6: A day to relax ?
The Bavarian Alps, which surround your acommodation are truly amazing.
