MULTI-DAY (LUXURY) ROAD TRIP IN BAVARIA
BEST OF GERMAN ALPINE ROAD (DRIVING) HOLIDAY
800 KM • 4 DRIVES • 5 NIGHTS • GERMANY 🇩🇪• AUSTRIA 🇦🇹 • ALL YEAR
Drive through the alpine landscapes of Bavaria along Germany's oldest scenic holiday route — the famous German Alpine Road between Lake Constance in Germany and Salzburg, Austria.
Truly a delight all year round — between December and March most likely covered with snow.
Experience historic sights, like Neuschwanstein Castle — while the appeal of the region has always been the small towns and villages along the route. Artists, aristocrats, and spa guests influence an interesting and lively combination of Bavarian traditions and customs and a sophisticated zeitgeist.
