Overview

We travel to grow -- our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise -- sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique. This is a must have volume for anyone really wanting to make the most of their German holiday. Color photos throughout. The author is a resident of Munich so he knows his subject well. "Of the three Germany guidebooks I used, this one was the most useful and not only because it covers so many places that the others simply ignored. Although you never get 10% off for showing this book, it has enough sensible advice on how to shave unnecessary expenses off the budget without ever feeling or acting like a cheapskate. The accommodation lists are very useful.--Jane S., Amazon.com Great to see a guidebook on Germany in English by an author who realizes that Germany is more than Berlin, the Rhine, and Bavaria. Not that the well-known areas are neglected but I particularly enjoyed the wide coverage on the former East German regions.--Steven, Amazon.com. The Romantische Strase (Romantic Road) is the most popular of Germany's roughly 150 themed vacation routes. It connects several romantic sights along a 210-mile route from Würzburg on the Main to Füssen at the foot of the Bavaria Alps. En route, it passes romantic towns, hamlets, castles, and churches. This section describes some of the stops along the way; some are worth stopping over for a few hours, while others can literally be seen in minutes. Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Schloss Neuschwanstein are the two most popular sights on the route. The Bavarian Alps are generally lower than their Austrian and Swiss counterparts but equally beautiful. The Alps suddenly rise out of green meadows, making any approach from Munich or the north spectacularly beautiful. The mountains are easily reached from Munich by road or rail and are popular for day-trips. The east-west connections in the mountain areas themselves are less well developed and a private car makes traveling much simpler. In addition to the mountains, the area teams with history and interesting buildings, many lakes and rivers, and countless hiking and cycling opportunities. Many ski resorts are popular with families as slopes are generally less challenging than in neighboring countries.Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Oberammergau, Berchtesgaden, Chiemsee, Königssee -- these are just a few of the unforgettable places to visit here.
