Bavaria 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.
Destination Munich and Bavaria not only looks great, it's incredibly versatile.
"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!"

Care to take a look inside? I’ve prepared a 14-page preview of Destination Munich and Bavaria to give you a taste of what the whole book looks like.
Just grab a corner of the page and flip it over, and of course you can zoom right in to read the text.
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.
That's me on the left with a couple
of pals at my first Munich Oktoberfest.
"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!

Bavaria's history is rich, turbulent and fascinating.
The eBook comes in a portable PDF form which means you can put it on your tablet computer or smart phone. And of course, printing pages out still works :-) *Note: Old cover shown.
Destination Munich and Bavaria works great on tablets! If I had to choose I’d just download the eBook onto my iPad and use it as I walked around. Navigation is also a breeze – you can jump from maps to attraction reviews to the table of contents with a quick touch or swipe.
But of course, good old, traditional paper still works great. You could either print out the eBook in full or print just the pages you need for your daily explorations. This could be particularly useful for the maps, for instance.
