Thanks guys, this place is great.
How long will you be there? You have a rental car? Everything in GE is close..........takes longer to drive across texas than all of central europe.
I spent almost 4 years there (Wuerzburg). If I was going to go back........my must see again list would include
Ludwig's castles (including the famous "disney" castle).
Garmisch, and the Zugspitz
Drive into the Czech Republic, to Plzen..........and tour the Pilsner Urquell brewery---birth place of the pils style lager. The sampling is off the charts.
The beer is awesome.........there are lots of little brewerys that offer tours.........you'll need a brewery guide for that (they used to sell them at the Frankfurt Airport), but you don't need to hunt for brewerys to get the good stuff.
Every po dunk biergarden will have awesome brews.
