The Bavarian countryside is ideal for roadtripping; bus travel is also possible, but services peter out in the evenings and at weekends. The Bayern-Ticket is a good deal, offering a day of unlimited travel on Bavaria’s regional and local transport (including suburban trains, trams and buses).
Where to Stay
Although traditional looking from the outside, Hotel Sonne in Füssen’s Altstadt offers an unexpected design-hotel experience within. Themed rooms feature swooping bed canopies and artworks.
Munich’s La Maison is retro and immaculate in shades of imperial purple and grey. Its rooms flaunt heated floors and jet-black washbasins, and the pillows are perfectly plumped.
Burg-Hotel has 17 elegant rooms built into Rothenburg ob der Tauber’s walls. There’s a spa, a cellar with a Steinway piano and valley views from the breakfast room.
