Destination Munich eBook

“If you like this site you’ll love the guidebook. Destination Munich and Bavaria is the most up-to-date and entertaining eBook about the region on the market!”

Destination-Munich-eBookHi, I'm Stuart, the author of this website. Even when I was floating around South-East Asia I dreamt of writing a guidebook about Bavaria after I moved here. It just seemed like a logical extension to my background as a journalist and my passions for travel, taking photos and talking to people.
My original idea was to call it “Running in Lederhosen: From a small Australian town to the beer tents of Bavaria – One man’s inspirational journey.”
What do you think of the title? sharing-is-sexyLuckily for both you and me, I’ve gone with something shorter and sweeter. Introducing the PDF eBook “Destination Munich and Bavaria”!

“This eBook is 285 pages of fully-updated travel intelligence. It’s all you need to discover the real Bavaria.”

The land of “Laptops and Lederhosen” – introducing Bavaria

bavariaBavaria is one of the most famous regions in Europe and its icons are renown – the Munich Oktoberfest, lederhosen and Dirndl dresses, flashy BMWs, humungous pretzels, the fairy-tale castles of King Ludwig II, who hasn’t at least heard of them?

But what’s really fascinating about the region is the contrasts. Just a century ago Bavaria was an agricultural backwater whose folksy inhabitants stuck to their traditions and tried to avoid world affairs whenever they could.

Things changed a lot after World War II. Manufacturing and high-tech industries sprang up and wealth and immigrants started rolling in.
Now Bavaria is a heady mix of all those things. The locals are just as proud of their booming economy and world-famous brands as they are of their traditional cuisine, clothing and culture.
If I could put it in a nutshell: Bavaria is a fun, fascinating place and an essential part of any European tour.

“Destination Munich and Bavaria offers a wealth of info for the independent traveller – and it’s fun to read, too.”


After years running www.destination-munich.com I know exactly what readers are after: Reviews of festivals and attractions, ideas for day trips, practical “getting around” info and features on Bavaria’s history and culture. The eBook has all of that in spades.
Take the section on attractions, for example. I’ve researched, visited, and reviewed 61 of Munich's star attractions so that you can choose exactly where you want to spend your time. And with directions, opening hours and entry prices listed, you won’t have to worry about the little things, either.
jayne-shaw“Stuart, What can I say: your ebook saved my honey-moon! My husband and I were driving around Europe after our wedding on August 4. We only had a week to spend in Germany but there were so many things we wanted to see that were in your book, so I bought it! We went to Ludwig's castles, the English Garden, the Nyphenberg palace, and much more! I simply dont think it would have been possible without your helpful advice and tips. A very heartfelt thank you!”

You'll have Bavaria well covered with the
eBook's exclusive maps.

I'm really excitied about Destination Munich and Bavaria's maps! They’re an essential part of any travel guide and I’ve gone all out to provide you with the best maps and plans possible.
The eBook includes: a Bavaria overview map, six large city maps, seven smaller area maps and two subway maps.

There are also five floor plan maps of art galleries and attractions including the Neuschwanstein Castle, the Nymphenburg Palace and Linderhof Palace.
Not only are these plans just fun to look at, you can actually use them to get around and find out what you’re looking at. All the maps are coloured, but if you want to print them out in black and white they'll work just as well.

The Oktoberfest: Get the low-down before you go.

oktoberfest ebook
That's me on the left with a couple
of pals at my first Munich Oktoberfest.

Munich’s most famous event is undoubtedly the Oktoberfest: 16 days of food, flirting, music, rides, massive beer tents and drunken debauchery. If you’re anything like me, going to this thing will probably be the most fun you’ve ever had in your life. The eBook has over 16 pages devoted purely to the Oktoberfest, answering questions such as:
▪ How much will it cost?
▪ Do I need to book a table?
▪ What are the different beer tents like?
▪ What should I say to effectively “chat up” that attractive girl/guy I rather fancy?
▪ What are the lyrics to that song that goes “Schwim, Schwimm, Schwimm…”? and so on.
There’s also a map of the Oktoberfest grounds so you’ll be able to work out exactly where you are, provided you haven’t drunk much delicious Munich beer, of course!
“Dear Stuart, Im really impressed with this eBook. Your passion really comes through in your writing and it made me more excited about my own trip!
Its also very well researched –-- Ive found interesting facts here that I havent read anywhere else. I recommend this book for anyone who is planning to visit Bavaria and wants to be informed about what they are seeing!”

Enrich your understanding. Get the backstory.

bavaria-historyBavaria's history is rich, turbulent and fascinating.

Some of the stories I found the most fun to write were the backstories. This is where you can learn about the people, history and culture that make Munich and Bavaria so special. Get the backstory behind lederhosen and Dirndls and find out about the “Munich Beauty” who caught the eye of a king.
Many fascinating chapters from the city’s past are covered including the infamous “Munich Agreement”, the "White Rose” resistance movement and Bavaria’s short spell as a communist republic.
On a lighter note, there are also stories on Munich’s famous glockenspiel, the city's love affair with beer and board surfing in this, a landlocked city!
