Roadtrip around Bavaria, Germany – 7 days travel itinerary

0

I must admit, I sometimes do wonder if Germany is getting better and better each year or do we keep finding ourselves in more fascinating places. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our roadtrip around Bavaria this year, so we have prepared a 7 days travel itinerary around Bavaria.

Day 1: Munich – Bavarian Forest (200 km)

Let’s say you landed in Munich and already spent few days there. You enjoyed the place, but want to find more about Bavaria. Take out a rented car (our recommendation Economy car rentals) and head out to the East, until reaching the oldest national park in Germany – The Bavarian Forest.

Park your car and head up to the Baumwipfelbad – the amazing wooden Sky Walk with the viewing tower and enjoy a walk through the forest and its animal park, where the local wild animals can be spotted. You can find more information about the Bavarian Forest here.

Where to eat?
Restaurant Liz (48.884002 / 13.474071)

Where to sleep?
Traveling with a toddler we slept at the Family hotel (Familotel Bayerischer Wald), but also sleeping in the Neuschönau village will be good – especially as it lies right next to the Baumwipfelbad Sky Walk. Check out the accommodations in Neuschönau here.

If you have enough time to spend on this roadtrip around Bavaria, we’d recommend you to stay there two days/two nights, as the Bavarian Forest National Park offers lots of activities – more here.

Day 2: Bavarian Forest – Waldwipfelweg (75 km)

Start your day with a breakfast and continue the roadtrip towards another theme park and Sky Walk – Waldwipfelweg. There’s much more to it than just a Sky Walk. In fact, the place will make you busy for hours – no matter the age. You can get more information about the Waldwipfelweg here.

Inside of the Waldwipfelweg park is a self-serving restaurant with good local food. The prices are affordable as well.

Where to sleep?
We’d recommend you to stay near St. Englmar town – in a guest house Gasthof-Hotel Dilger.

Day 3: Waldwipfelweg – Nuremberg (175 km)

Start your day in direction of Nuremberg, which you’ll reach before lunch. Enjoy your first day to wander around the city and its old town. Take a look here, what all Nuremberg offers.

If you are stopping at Nuremberg without kids, you can either spend the whole day in Nuremberg or you could also do a day trip to Bamberg – picturesque town (at least that’s what we heard), which is one hour drive from Nuremberg.

Day 5: Nuremberg – Augsburg (172 km)

On your way back to Munich, stop at the cute city of Augsburg. In fact, this has still been one of my favorite cities in Bavaria. There’s lots of things to do there – more here.

We’d recommend the Biergarten at the local Brewery – Riegele or the local market for some cheap food.
