There's more to Upper Bavaria than Oktoberfest

There's more to Upper Bavaria than donning a lederhosen and feathered hat while slapping your knees to the sounds of regional music and downing frothy steins of strong German beer at the annual Oktoberfest. When you stay in an Upper Bavaria vacation rental, you'll have access to the breathtaking alpine region and its endless possibilities for outdoor adventures. Consider taking a break from the challenging treks to amble around the fairy tale castles or dive into one of Munich's many fascinating museums and galleries. You'll also sample Bavarian food, hearty mountain fare which matches the cold climate.

Things to do

See the real Disney castle in Upper Bavaria

If you've never heard of Neuschwanstein Castle, imagine the iconic Disney castle and you've got a pretty good idea of what this beautiful structure looks like. In fact, the castle built by King Ludwig II inspired many of the world's fairy tales and when you catch your first glimpse of the castle's spires covered in the winter snows, you'll see why. If you've scored an Upper Bavaria vacation rental in the region's capital Munich, you'll be moments away from all its ornate German palaces, museums and the fine lakeside Englischer Garten, not to mention the modern 75,000-seat Allianz Arena.

Activities

The snowy German Alps await in Upper Bavaria

If you're looking for family outdoor adventure, make a beeline for one of the Upper Bavaria vacation rentals which put you in the heart of the German Alps. In summer, the fertile green slopes make for challenging trekking and exciting downhill mountain biking, set against the backdrop of some of Europe's most spectacular scenery. The fun isn't over in winter, when thrill-seeking crowds descend with skies and snowboards in hand to hit the slopes. The season here is long and you can go glacier skiing well into May. If you're into the great outdoors, there are few places which measure up to Upper Bavaria.

Weather

There's no best or worst season in Upper Bavaria

Summer season is awash with travelers who come to delve into the cultural attractions in Munich or the outdoor activities in the German Alps. If you plan to nab an Upper Bavaria vacation rental in Munich during Oktoberfest, you'll need to be quick, as they sell out months in advance. Alternatively, visit between March and May, when the weather is a little cooler, the prices of rentals have taken a nosedive and there are no queues at the attractions. Winter in Upper Bavaria can be nippy, to say the least, but if snow sports are your thing, there's no better time.
