To a friend who had never been to Germany and had only enough time to see a single city or region, we would recommend the countryside of southern Bavaria. Enjoy extraordinary beauty, several Michelin three-star sights, and restaurants and hotel prices that are among the lowest in the country.
- The Bavarian Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein
- Abbey at Ettal
Drive the backroads, staying off the Deutsche Alpenstrasse as much as possible.
