Bavaria is definitely going to be one of the top travel destinations 2016. We’ve reported on the most typical part of Germany making it to Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016 list, and now Fodor’s included Bavaria on their annual “Go” list.
Fodor's Travel, the leading name in travel recommendations for almost 80 years, yesterday (December 8) released its fifth annual Fodor's Go List. The list highlights 25 can't-miss spots around the world that should be on every traveler's radar in 2016 and includes destinations for every type of trip – from palm-lined beaches in Guadeloupe to opulent beauty in Abu Dhabi.
The destinations, which span six continents and 20 countries, are chosen by the experts at Fodor's Travel who log countless miles traveling across the globe each year. This year's list incorporates everything from emerging destinations (Minneapolis's North Loop) and new hotspots (Cuba) to noteworthy events (Bavaria's Oktoberfest will be even more of a party as they celebrate the 500th anniversary of the famous Beer Purity Law) and great values (San Sebastian, Spain) around the world.
To select the 2016 Go List, the Fodor's editorial team began with an initial list of dozens of global and domestic nominees, which they narrowed down to the top 25 places to go next year after much heated internal debate. The end result is a Go List that highlights travel destinations sure to suit every taste, trip length and budget. You can check out the list here.
Fodor’s about the best time to visit Bavaria: Depending on what you’re looking for, every season has something to offer. Winter means fewer crowds in popular tourist spots, as well as skiing in the Alps. Springtime is Spargelzeit, when Bavarians go wild for green and white asparagus. Summer and fall are peak tourism seasons, and the best times to enjoy beer gardens and mountain hikes.
