The essence of bavaria
Maypoles and beer mugs, Lederhosen and King Ludwig II. These impressions of Upper Bavaria shape the world's image of Germany. Upper Bavaria is all of this – and more. Here tradition merges with modern life, rustic village inns coexist with experimental gourmet cuisine, old customs are met with new events. Traditional breweries flourish beside craft beer makers. The works of old masters inspire young artists. Upper Bavaria is framed by the majestic Alps in the south and the blue band of the Danube River in the north. Here you can enjoy scenic hikes or ride your bike along the many rivers and lakes, on old salt roads and through hop gardens. Go on a shopping spree or experience art and culture in the city of Munich and the gems surrounding it. Moreover, Upper Bavaria's alpine world and its homely winter sport resorts serve as a cradle for top athletes and as a Mecca for recreational sport enthusiasts. Experience special highlights in Upper Bavaria, such as the Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake or the imposing Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. Or visit the Hallertau, the biggest connected hop-growing region in the world and the source for Bavarian beer enjoyment.
