Bavaria amongst Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016

By  Wednesday, 28.10.2015, 10:56    General News

The Free State of Bavaria has earned itself a spot on the annual Lonely Planet Best in Travel Top 10 list at which the travel specialists pick their trend regions for the coming year. Lonely Planet calls Bavaria “the supermodel among Germany’s 16 states”, so the Alps would probably be...

The state made it to the eight spot (behind Hawaii on 7) of the 2016 list which was topped by the home of Count Dracula, the Romanian region of Transylvania. “Bavaria’s capital, Munich, bewitches with its sweeping gardens, superb museums, grand palaces and Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest beer bash.”

The Author attributes the Bavarian people to have “almost Mediterranean joie de vivre” and also points out that that 2016 will mark the 500th anniversary of the German “Reinheitsgebot” (the "German Beer Purity Law" in English). According to the 1516 Bavarian law, the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer were water, barley and hops. So 2016 will be a good year to visit the Oktoberfest.

Author Andrea Schulte-Peevers wrote about Munich: “Munich dazzles with its royal palaces, sweeping parks, superb museums and boisterous beer halls. To soak up some local flavour hang out in the hip Glockenbach quarter or watch a home game of world-class soccer team FC Bayern München in the stunning Allianz Arena.”
