Cities and Castles

Our final destination on our tour of Germany was the large metro and capital of Bavaria, Munich. It has so much history and tourist attraction options, it's tough to summarize what your options are. This is the second time I've spent 3 or 4 days in Munich and mostly saw all new stuff this time and still haven't run out of things to check out. This time included a couple day trips a little further outside the main city center.

We went north to check out the Dachau concentration camp memorial site. Another day we headed south to check out some of the most well known German castles and their local small villages.

Highly recommend:

  • Marienplatz
  • Christmas markets
  • Dachau memorial
  • Linderhof castle
  • Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles
  • Theresenweise / Oktoberfest grounds

Other sites to check out:

  • 1972 Olympic site
  • Nymphenburg palace
  • BMW museum
  • Royal Residence & theater
  • Hofbrauhaus and other brew pubs
  • several local churches, universities, museums, markets, and parks
