Bavaria

The beautiful landscape of the Free State of Bavaria boasts spectacular peaks of the Alpine mountain range, green forests, romantic meadows and quaint towns. It is located in the south-east of Germany and is the largest federated state by land. It is renowned for its strong economy. Bavaria has the best developed industry in Germany and the lowest unemployment rate.

The state entices visitor's not only with its wealth and scenery but also with its many culinary specialities such as its world-famous wheat beer and the unique “Weißwurst”, a traditional veal sausage. While visiting one of the state's many beer gardens in order to enjoy these treats, guests are likely to be greeted with a hearty “Servus".

In Bavaria's larger cities like Nuremberg and Augsburg but especially in the state's capital Munich, historical buildings and traditional customs coexist with modern architecture and an increasingly urban lifestyle. Numerous universities of international esteem are based in Bavaria.

Folk fairs are celebrated all year round, the most famous one being the Oktoberfest. In addition, Bavaria is known for its many historic castles, including the world's largest castle complex, Burghausen.

Bavaria comprises the south-east corner of Germany, bordering Austria and the Czech Republic. It covers 70,542 km² and has a population 13 million inhabitants.
