Trip Report Back from a lovely two-week trip to Bavaria

Jump to last reply

DH and I had a wonderful time in Bavaria. We did our entire trip by train which I highly recommend. Thanks to all the good Fodorites for you help-particularly Russ and Manhattangirl. Once I got the gist of how the train system works, it was a piece of cake. We used the Bayern tickets extensively and purchased them over the Internet before we left Washington.

This is a brief report because I know that there are plenty of other more descriptive reports on Bavaria. I would describe us as mature middle class travellers who travel modestly. We usually stay in 3 star hotels that are well-located for sightseeing. We found
Bavaria to be more expensive for hotels (average $217.00 per night) than we are used to, perhaps because of the Exchange Rate ($1.42 to 1 Euro). We were please with our hotels;all offered a hearty breakfast buffet and had pleasant staff. I list them for your convenience:

Nuremburg-Burghotel in the Alstadt
Fussen-Hotel zum Hechten
Munich-Hotel Exquisit
Rothenburg-Hotel Spitzweg
Bamberg-Hotel Barock am Dom

While I found the hotels to be more expensive than I hoped for, all were in very good locations for us to walk everywhere and we seldom used busses or trolleys. The big surprise of the trip was the food. It was just delicious-nicely prepared with delicious
light sauces and fresh vegetables. We were pleased with dinner prices and had no disappointments at any restaurant on the trip.

I sign off with one piece of advice-if you go to Bavaria, do not miss Bamberg. The old town is stunning. It is worth any detour that you have to make.

Pat
