  1. Ohh Bavaria really is so stunning! And the food is just the best! We’ve only been in Munich like 36 hours last year but all the food we ate in that time – oh my god!!! 😉

  2. Oh my goodness! We seriously fell so much in love with Germany and Bavaria while we were in Europe! The people were so amazing, and I was blown away by how beautiful everything was! I want to go back as soon as possible!

  3. Well, I was convinced to visit Bavaria because of your other posts but these photos sweeten the deal. I went to Munich long time ago and really enjoyed the city. We stopped on the airport when we were coming back from Budapest and it was heartbreaking not being able to go out.

  4. I haven’t done Bavaria anywhere near as much justice as it deserves! I went to Oktoberfest in Munich and that was about it, but there is soooo much more! I’m officially jealous of your Neuschwanstein Castle photo – the bridge was closed when we visited so sadly we couldn’t capture this iconic shot! #weekendwanderlust

  5. Oh…<3 I absolutely love Bavaria! Been to Munich, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Regensburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein! It was close to Christmas, so in Rothenburg they had all these amazing christmas shops, markets and fairs! They are beautiful everywhere in Germany, but never have I felt myself in a real-life fairytale the way I did in Rothenburg.

    I´m dreaming about road tripping around Bavaria for a week or so, to see all these little villages!

  6. You are right, Lolo, your pictures DO make me want to come to Bavaria. I’d especially love to visit it in Fall again. The last time I was there it was in late September and just as I was prepared to enjoy the fall colors it started snowing out of the blue and winter settled in unexpectedly.

  7. Your photos are absolutely spectacular. They all look like postcards! I’ve only been to Frankfurt and Berlin in Germany, and Bavaria is very much on the top of my German to-visit list. My favorite pic is the one of the lederhosen and dirndls. =)

  8. Great pictures. I have been to Munich but really want to explore areas outside the city. Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard

  9. Yes I definitely want to go now, those pictures are incredible! I am so happy I stumbled across your blog, you seem like such a lovely person and I hope you never stop doing what you do! x

  10. We went to Bavaria last year and just loved it. So funny, we have exact same phtograph of the church in Ramsau! We just loved all the oriels aren’t they just amazing.

  11. What a beautiful area of Germany. We were only able to spend a couple of days touring including Ludwig’s castles. I love that you showed these other towns that surely ignited my wanderlust. My brother and his family moved to Germany last year so I will share this with them. We’ll be there next year and hoping to visit some of these places. Would really love to see Rothenburg ob der Tauber. That just looks like a fairytale town.
