Munich — 7 nights

Village of a Million People

Often described as the city of laptops and lederhosen, Munich is an international center of business, engineering, research, and medicine that still maintains a rich cultural heritage and age-old traditions.
Head to Kunsthalle Munich and Gallerie Thomasfor some retail therapy. Deutsches Museum and Staatliche Museum Agyptischer Kunst will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Munich: Starnberger See (in Starnberg) and Andechs Monastery (in Andechs). Spend the 1st (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: examine the collection at NS-Dokumentationszentrum Muenchen, don't miss a visit to Marienplatz, admire the masterpieces at Pinakothek der Moderne, and browse the exhibits of BMW Headquarters.

Germany is the home of high culture, fine art, classical music, world-class sports, award-winning cuisine--and some of the world's best beers. It's also one of the major economic and political powers of the European continent. One of the founding members of the European Union, Germany is a federation of 16 states. Each boasts its own distinct culture, art, cuisine, regional traditions, and array of things to do. The country is known worldwide for its precision engineering and high-tech products. Equally, though, Germany is admired for its old-world charm and what is locally known as gemutlichkeit (coziness). This is one of the easiest countries in the world to explore, offering an abundance of sightseeing opportunities. German transportation runs with German efficiency. Therefore, getting around the various regions is almost always easy, quick, and pleasant. Visit the cities to explore museums, art galleries, modern restaurants, and trendy shops. Also be sure to venture deeper into the countryside. Here, you can discover ancient castles and bustling little villages. Often in these off-the-beaten-path areas, the main tourist attraction remains the simple hospitality of the friendly locals.
