Travel destination Bavaria

Discover many opportunities for enjoying nature actively and experience this very special attitude towards life – on an adventure holiday in Bavaria.
Bavaria offers a wide variety of ways to experience nature: Cycle along the Danube at your own pace and then turn into a country-style beer garden. Set off on a pleasure tour through the vineyards of Franconia or climb the Berchtesgaden Alps: The national park in the Berchtesgaden region is impressive because of its massive mountainous peaks and deep gorges. In the mountain huts waiters and waitresses in dirndl dresses and traditional costume will serve you regional delicacies and invite you to while away your hours in jolly company.

If you want to do sports, climb in the Altmühltal valley or go on mountain bike tours on 300-kilometer long stretches in the Franconian Forest. Canoeing on the Main allows you to paddle your way through various Franconian landscapes. In winter, the vacation regions Zugspitz-Region and Tölzer Land invite you to ski and cross-country ski on optimally prepared slopes and trails – and of course to try one or two glasses of Jägertee (black tea with rum).

Close proximity to nature, traditional customs and friendly get-together in the beergardens and cosy pubs will make your vacation in Bavaria an unforgettable experience.
