Upon your return from the ski piste or your bike tour, the private Finnish sauna is the ideal spot to quietly wind down yet another amazing day spent in the Bavarian Alps.
From Holiday Home to Bavarian Cuisine
May we tempt you with Munich Weisswurst? Or perhaps a juicy Schweinshaxe? The list of typical Bavarian specialties is a long one. In addition to those we have already mentioned, some of the most popular also include roast pork with bread dumplings, Sauerbraten and liver-dumpling soup. For their part, cheese lovers would be well advised to order Obazda or Allgau-style Käsespätzle. A cold glass of Weissbier, perhaps enjoyed with a hearty afternoon snack, is also a must. For dessert, we recommend Bavarian Crème or plum cake with butter crumble. Incidentally: All of these dishes can also be cooked up wonderfully in the fully equipped kitchens of our holiday homes.
Popular Attractions in Bavaria
As Germany’s biggest state, Bavaria has all kinds of excursion destinations to offer. We have deliberately restricted our selection to focus on our holiday homes in St. Englmar and Inzell. Lots of fun and action are promised by the amusement park in Ruhpolding and Europapark Bayern-Böhmen. Likewise well worth a visit is Lake Chiemsee, which, due to its size, is commonly nicknamed the “Bavarian Sea”. In Berchtesgaden National Park and Bavarian Forest, on the other hand, you will experience nature at its most pristine. Aside from diverse flora and fauna, visitors are always awed by Lake Königssee. The historic Old City of Regensburg is also a must-see. And if you still have time to spare, you will definitely find a daytrip to Munich extremely rewarding.
Annual Events in Bavaria
The Four Hills Tournament in Oberstdorf and Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a true magnet for visitors. Numerous spectators make an annual pilgrimage there in order to cheer on their favorite ski-jumping stars. Yet another sporting spectacle is the FIS Ski World Cup in Garmisch. Aside from winter sports, Oktoberfest in Munich is the most famous event in Bavaria. Though not to worry, Herbstfest in Rosenheim and the Gäuboden Volksfest in Straubing have lots of tradition and culture in store as well. Especially popular with theater-goers is the Bayreuth Festival, whilst beer lovers will undoubtedly wish to make a beeline to Kulmbacher Bierwoche. Families with children are certain to be excited by the Castle Festival in Burghausen and the Drachenstich in Furth.
