Destination guide

Bavaria is a story-book region

Bavaria is a place that lives up to its reputation. Mountains shrouded in clouds fall down to the fertile valleys and plains of the Danube and are festooned with colorful traditional timber villages and palatial story-book castles. It's hard to be disappointed with this chocolate-box pretty part of Germany, that's if you can make it from the beer halls of Munich, where knee-slapping dances, accompanied by enormous steins, will surely have you lying in late the following day. The locals are warm and you'll be feeling at home right from the moment you settle into your Bavaria vacation rental.

Things to do

There's more than just the beer halls in Bavaria

Bavaria is, arguably, best known for Munich's world-famous Oktoberfest. Every fall, millions of travelers fly into the Bavarian capital to dress up in lederhosen and feathered hats and try to keep up with the local beer-drinking veterans. It's undoubtedly fun, but there's much more beyond the beer halls. A good start is the King Ludwig II's fairy tale Neuschwanstein Castle, a towering structure which inspired Disney's iconic castle. If you drive up the German Alpine Highway, you'll pass some gorgeous traditional mountain towns and historical landmarks. If you find yourself in a Bavarian vacation rental in December, you can dive into the famously good Christmas markets.


Outdoor adventures await in Bavaria

So, you're looking to stretch your legs along some seriously impressive scenery. You've come to the right place. If you nab a Bavaria vacation rental in the German Alps, you'll have a whole host of hiking and biking trails leading from your doorstep. The footpaths vary, from short hour-long hikes to day-long winding trails that lead up through spectacular scenery. When the long, cold winters draw in, the fun isn't over. Thrill-seekers dust off their skis or snowboards and make a beeline for the mountains to ride the snowy runs.


All 4 of Bavaria's seasons have their own merits

The summer season is the busiest and sees the biggest influx of travelers nabbing Bavaria vacation rentals. July to August has the most consistent weather, with bright skies and temperatures that hover around the high 70s or low 80s. Don't discount the other seasons though. If you catch them right, spring and fall can have wonderfully agreeable climates and although often chilly, ideal for outdoor activities, while December to February sees the whole area carpeted in a thick layer of snow, a winter wonderland environment that can be used for a whole host of outdoor pursuits.

Natural features

Bavaria's Alps teem with mountain critters

Some may argue, but Bavaria's scenery is often considered the most beautiful in Germany, particularly in Upper Bavaria, where snow-capped mountains dominate a landscape of forests and glistening alpine lakes. There are some seriously impressive critters to spot, most notably the Alpine ibex, a species of wild horned goat that thrives up the steep mountainsides. Buzzards went into serious decline, but in recent years have made a comeback and can now be spotted circling overhead. Wild deer, badgers and foxes make up just a small slice of the other species that reside in Bavaria.
