Bavaria (Germany) and Austria – A great family destination

Imagine a historic land with fairy tale like castles, abbeys, emerald lakes, dark dense forests, tall snow capped alps, a living culture of arts and music. This land exists and it’s called “Bavaria”. It is the largest state of Germany (by area).

On the other side of the Bavarian alps lies Austria. Equally beautiful and culturally similar to Bavaria. To tour this wonderland you can drive at 150 kms/hr on the Autobahn or ride at 230 kms/hr in the super fast trains that span both countries.

Enjoying the public parks at Schliersee, Bavaria, Germany

With so much to offer for each member of the family this is a dream destination. Devam who is 4 years old enjoyed the zoos, public parks, lakes, petting animals, picking cherries and the super fast train rides. Each unique hotel provided us with all the comforts for the entire family. There is only one drawback this vacation can get pricey very easily so I would suggest you pre-plan your hotels and maintain a budget for food, tours and entertainment. Also travel with very little luggage so you can take advantage of trains. Thanks to Eurorail – you can get a great deal on train travel for multiple days and for larger groups.
