  • Tomb of The Blessed Gisela

    Passau Things to Do

    The remains of the Blessed Gisela (985-7 May 1065) have been laid to rest at the nunnery of Niedernburg in Passau, where she died. Gisela was a daughter of the Duke of Bavaria and the wife ('consort') of the holy King Stephen I of Hungary. Her tomb is visited by many pilgrims from Hungary. It is perhaps interesting to note that Gisela herself is...

    Füssen Things to Do

    From my emails:"The tours of the palace were only in German (they have to have a minimum of 15 for a specific guide) but they do have excellent and easy to read sheets and you just tack on to the back of a tour.The exterior's classical excellence is only exceeded by the baroque and rococo-gone-mad interior. It has been compared to the Palace of...

    Füssen Things to Do

    Of course, you've come to Fussen or Schwangau or any of the outlying villages to see Neuschwanstein. If you don't already know, there are several others in the area. My advice, for what it's worth, is to allow time to do more than just visit one. There's a lot more this area has to offer.Fate took me to Hohenschwangau first. I alighted from the bus...

    Mittenwald What to Pack

    There are some overnight mountain top options so a backpack could come in handy but for an overnight trip from our home in Munich, a very light back was more than sufficient. Dressing in layers is always important for the mountains and even on a hot summer day, it gets fairly cool at night so a fleece or sweater are always advisable. Come prepared...

    Mittenwald Things to Do

    With Mittenwald's strategic location in the heart of the German Alps, it is no wonder it is a Mecca for hikers in summer and those more ski-inclined in winter. There are hikes for all levels of fitness, from flat lake-side strolls to steep stoney trudges. Of course, we opted for the latter even though we had not done any hiking in four months....

In Bavaria the schools are closed for a week, and street parades seem to be the main manifestation. Fancy dress, floats, beer, sweets etc.Photos are from the Gaimersheim...

    Of all the three castles, King Ludwig II had built, Linderhof is the only one which was finished and maybe resembles his visions of “Bavarian Versailles” and Wagner’s operas most. It is also the castle he spent most of his time.In his childhood the king was here in Grasswangtal (Grasswang Valley) quite often, in the Royal Lodge, which still stands...

    Oberammergau Things to Do

    One of Bavaria’s most famous monasteries lays just around the corner of Oberammergau: Ettal Abbey. Those who like walking can even walk to it in approx. 30 minutes, or take the bike. I have heard a lot about the abbey beforehand and wanted to see it one day. But when I was finally inside, it did not live up the hype for me. Maybe it was the weather...

    This is not what you'd call a restaurant but it certainly is worthy of mention no matter how you would describe it. Dult Café is a makeshift coffee bar with limited seating which is a very popular place to stop whilst exploring the Augsburger Dult (Markets). I would hazard a guess and say that the Dult Café could probably be found at other markets...

There was even a T-Shirt stall which had some of its wares hung on the front door to our apartment block. We couldn't believe our good fortune.This is a truly wonderful market...

    Change in pricing scheme for Bayern-Ticket:

    The fare structure has changed significantly for the Bayern-Ticket, the ticket valid on all local trains and most public transport systems in Bavaria. Instead of a two-tiered system for "single" tickets and "regular" tickets up to 5 people, the fare now varies based on how many people are using the tickets. As of December 2012, the fares are as follows:

    1 person : EUR 22.00
    2 people : EUR 26.00
    3 people : EUR 30.00
    4 people : EUR 34.00
    5 people : EUR 38.00

    Go to Deutsche Bahn's website for details, restrictions, and further information.
