Neuschwansteinstraße 20, 87645 Schwangau, Germany
Few sights encapsulate the magical feel of the Bavarian Alps like Neuschwanstein Castle. The impressive towers, vast halls, and mountain-top setting bring out your inner child, transporting you back to a time of bedtime stories and...
Königssee, 83471 Schönau am Königssee, Germany
No matter the time of year you visit, Lake Königssee will always inspire utter awe. Summer means shimmering water in shades of emerald and sage green, while winter brings a cold, misty atmosphere with otherworldly light. Take a boat ride...
Museumsinsel 1, 80538 München, Germany
Munich's Deutsches Museum is the world's largest museum of science and technology. My whole family had so much fun in this museum we could easily have spent the entire day here. Exhibits cover 50 fields including computers, electric engineering,...
Olympiapark, Spiridon-Louis-Ring 7, 80992 München, Germany
Take a quick, ear-popping elevator ride to the observation deck of the Olympiaturm (190 meters or 623 feet), in the center of Olympic Park, and see across the whole city—as far as the Alps, in clear weather. The last elevator goes up at 11:30pm,...
Prinzregentenstraße, 80538 München, Germany

Viktualienmarkt 3, 80331 München, Germany

Getreidegasse 47, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
While many know the famous Reber brand Mozart Kugeln outside of Austria, those delicious marzipan and pistachio filled chocolate balls, they are by no means the original. They were created in 1890 by a Salzburg confectioner named Paul Fürst, who...
Wilhelm-Spazier-Straße 7A, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
When you think of Salzburg, what may come to mind first are chocolate, Mozart, and, of course, the von Trapps. With Hangar-7, however, you can add vintage planes to that list. Construction on Hangar-7 at the Salzburg Airport began in 2001 and was...
Getreidegasse 27, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
Since the 12th century, Getreidegasse has been Salzburg’s best-known shopping street, with high-end establishments jostling with souvenir shops and restaurants in tall, narrow buildings with ornately designed wrought-iron guild signs....
Seestraße 146, 4830 Hallstatt, Austria
Before you pull into the charming, old world town of Hallstatt, stop off in the park by the lake at 53 Seelaende. There you can take breathtaking photos of the stunning mountains, the lake, and the delightful architectural wonder that is...
