Big, beautiful and wealthy, Bavaria's alpine landscape is a backdrop for some of Germany's most magnificent architecture and an economy bigger than Sweden's. It is Germany's largest state and covers almost one fifth of the country. Plus it has Munich, the Alps and those magical castles built by Ludwig II, Wagner’s festival, Oberammergau’s Passion Play and Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze. Our selection of the best places to stay in Bavaria offers something for everyone from budget B&Bs in the back of beyond to uber luxurious pads in amongst the bright lights and fun of the cities.
The Highlights of Bavaria: where to stay
Munich for Oktoberfest
- Capital, and heart, of the region, Munich embraces both old and new with zeal. This is where you'll see people happily donning traditional dress for one festivity or another, but getting into their brand new BMW to take them there. And of course there's the beer...
Nuremberg for the Christmas Markets
- Lively year round, Nuremberg really comes alive at Christmas time. This city grew wealthy as one of the capitals of the Holy Roman Empire, and unofficial seat of German Kings, but much of the medieval architecture has been replaced by Nazi built designs. Famous for its very dark beer, nightlife, wealth in art and its role in WWII, Nuremberg is one of Bavaria's biggest draws.
Bayreuth for the Wagner Festival
- Wagner started this festival himself, even designing the theatre, the Festspielhaus, and it's still introduced annually by one of his descendants.
Würzburg for the Residenz
- Built for the Prince Bishops of Würzburg in 1720, Napoleon called it 'the nicest parsonage in Europe'. The best French and Austrian architects and designers of the day ensured it was elegant and beautiful, full of detail but not overdone.
Passau for the Danube
- Close to the Austrian border, this picturesque town sits on the convergence of three great rivers. So it's no surprise it was a very powerful trading position. The Holy Roman Empire built much of this pretty city, and it shows in the Italianate style.
Bamberg for the beauty of Bamberg
- Bamberg's entire old town has been Heritage Listed by UNESCO. And it's generally considered to be Germany's most beautiful town. As well as architecture it turns out Bamberg's inhabitants also do a great smoked beer. There are still ten local breweries in town.
Regensburg for the Medieval beauty of Regensburg, and the Danube
- Regensburg has been an important trading centre on the Danube for millennia, and its architecture is testament to the town's wealth and importance. Most of the really exceptional buildings went up between the 11th and 13th Centuries.
Lindau for Lake Constance
- Close to the borders with both Switzerland and Austria, Lindau boasts a superb location right on the glorious Lake Constance. Explore its charming medieval old town, climb its iconic lighthouse or simply stroll along the lakeside paths and gaze at the beautiful surroundings.....
And the Bavarian Alps and Schloss Neuschwanstein for the fairytale wonder of what can be achieved by one boy with a romantic imagination!
- If you like what you see you could consider walking King Ludwig's Way, a journey through some of Bavaria's most charming countryside from Lake Starnberg, past pretty villages, pale chalets, Orthodox churches, monasteries, cathedrals, two dramatic gorges and into the alps and Schloss Neuschwanstein. Signposted with 'K's, this route will take about five days, assuming you walk between 15 and 20 kilometres a day. While exploring the Bavarian Alps you could stay in Oberammergau and hope to be there for its world renowned Passion Play - it takes place once every ten years, so you've plenty of time to plan ahead!
What not to Miss
All of the above and then:
- If you’re visiting Munich start your explorations in the Marienplatz, which has some incredible architecture.
- Top that with a visit to Nymphenburg Palace which is dripping with architectural splendour - from a variety of classical periods - and breathtakingly ornate interiors.
- And spend an afternoon wandering around the English Garden (or Englischer Garten), a 900-acre park with 78km of hiking and cycling trails as well as a Greek temple, Chinese pagoda and Japanese tea house. Plus, there's even a beer garden. Of course.
- If you’re visiting Nuremberg, or even if you’re just passing by, most of us will feel it’s unfinished without a visit to the Palace of Justice, which now hosts a permanent exhibition charting the events leading up to the Nuremberg trials, the trials themselves, and their repercussions.
- Around 90% of Nuremberg was destroyed by Allied bombing during WW2, but after the conflict the decision was taken that instead of clearing the rubble and rebuilding a fresh city they would painstakingly restore the original buildings - a process which took almost forty years. Many monuments and buildings were salvaged, repaired and reinstated, so what you see is a patchwork of the city before the 40s. Including the Old Town, which is dominated by the castle, a group of fortified medieval buildings on a ridge overlooking the city. It, and its walls, were designed to represent the power and importance of the Holy Roman Empire.
- Nuremberg also has numerous impressive churches and the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Germany’s largest museum of cultural history and one to many important paintings and artefacts. And the Tiergarten Zoo is one of the most beautiful zoos in Europe - situated on Schmausenbuck hill.

- If you want to hire a car - which we highly recommend if you’re staying in Bavaria - we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
- If you’re here for the snow then check your resort for the very best time to visit, otherwise Christmas is very special, and Oktobefest is world famous, but if you want the most pleasant weather for your visit then you’ll probably want to visit between May and September. And March and May if you want to avoid the summer visitors entirely.
