Are you dreaming of Germany during winter time? Since my heritage lies in Bavaria, Germany I have often been asked where to go in Bavaria. Hence, I thought it would be best if I write a quick tour guide through Bavaria on this snowy winter day. You will see a mix of images from:

  • Starnberger See
  • Garmisch-Partenkirchen
  • Königssee
  • Munich
  • Zugspitze with Eibsee

Those who love nature like I do will appreciate Bavaria. It offers beautiful little villages, lakes and mountains. But let’s start with the capital of Bavaria itself – Munich. Munich is my birth town. It’s a very quaint city with beautiful architecture just like the opera house, the Siegestor at the Münchner Freiheit and the Odeonsplatz close to the Hofgarten. Don’t miss the pretty mayor’s house at the Marienplatz to enjoy some shopping.

Just a little outside of Munich lies the Starnberger See. I just caught the golden hour on this day – sunset with seagulls flying. I simply love those moments – very romantic and peaceful.

If you go further away from Munich towards the south you will discover the beauty of Garmisch-Partenkirchen with its stunning Königssee. On the Königssee lies a little island with the only church on it. Königssee is famous for the cleanest sweet water lake in Europe. Only electro boats are allowed to cross this lake. Only one fisherman has the license to fish on this lake. When you take the boat tour from the shore to the church the driver will play on his horn and you will be able to hear the echo from the mountains surrounding the lake. It’s the only Fjord we have in Bavaria.

Are you up for skiing or a hike? Then you need to see the Zugspitze with its beautiful Eibsee. Its turquouise water will mesmerize you!

And the best part of Bavaria – wherever you go you will have lots of food and drink choices. You love beer? Bavaria is your place!
