Palaces, Castles and Fortresses

If you want to visit the most popular – and most scenic – travel destination in Germany, then you have to go sightseeing in Bavaria. Bavaria isn’t just beer, sausage and lederhosen. It is the largest and wealthiest state in Germany has many things to offer. Below is a sample of the many interesting things to do in beautiful Bavaria. I’m also available for custom itineraries as well.

Munich is the capital and the largest city of the German state of Bavaria and is approx. 1.5 hours drive from Nuremberg. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, behind Berlin and Hamburg and offers many things to do and see. For example, Schloss Nymphenburg, BMW factory and museum, several very nice art museums, and lots of shopping. Please contact me for a quote and availability.

Sightseeing in BavariaDachau was the first of the Nazi concentration camp opened in Germany. It is located on the grounds of an abandoned munitions factory near the medieval town of Dachau and is approx. 1.5 hours drive from Nuremberg. This camp served as a model for all later concentration camps and as a “school of violence” for SS men under whose command it stood. Please contact me for a quote and availability.

Sightseeing in BavariaHitler’s Eagle’s Nest is a chalet-style structure erected on a subpeak of the Hoher Göll known as the Kehlstein and is approx. 3.5 hours drive from Nuremberg. The Kehlsteinhaus was intended as a 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler to serve as a retreat, and a place for him to entertain visiting dignitaries. Please contact me for a quote and availability.

Sightseeing in BavariaNeuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century palace a-bove the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria and is approx. 3 hours drive from Nuremberg. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner. The palace was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland. Please contact me for a quote and availability.

Sightseeing in BavariaLinderhof Palace is in southwest Bavaria near Ettal Abbey and is approx. 4 hours drive from Nuremberg. It is the smallest of the three palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and the only one which he lived to see completed. Linderhof is much smaller than Versailles, but it is obvious that the palace of the French Sun-King, Louis XIV, was its inspiration. Please contact me for a quote and availability.
