Bavaria

iStock International
Bavaria — This storied southeastern region of Germany combines centuries-old values with forward-thinking design, both of which are reflected in the region’s diverse art, architecture, and people. Hear an oompah band while draining a pint of wheat beer at Oktoberfest, enjoy a world-class meal in a medieval castle, or put the pedal to the metal on the autobahn.

Why Go

For Germany’s highest peaks, its best beer, and a drive on its infamous autobahn – not necessarily in that order!
