Looking for one main trip or thing you did that stood out in your trip to Germany.

The outdoor market at the end of the main drag through Munich is fun. So is a trip to Fussen to see the castle.

See the glockenspiel and the marienplatz. Then grab a day trip to Neuschwanstein and Oberammagau (the 2000 passion play is going on this year). I was there two years ago and it is supposed to be very cool. Really liked the town, quaint, right off of the romantic road.

Be sure to take a walk down by the river and through the big park (can't remember the name). Both have interesting surprises and you get to see the Germans being, well, German. I went right before Christmas and the Christmas market in Munich (and elsewhere) were fantastic. Eat lots of bratwurst and potato soup (kartoffelzuppe ?) - you'll never find anything so good here in the states. And gluhwein (sp?), warm spiced wine. 'Scuse me while I go get a snack.

I would go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and take the Gondola to the top of Zugspitze, but only if it's a clear day. This is the highest mountain in Germany and you can look over the Alps for miles and miles. The views are just amazing. The Englisches Garten is a good place to take a walk, sit and sip a mas, and just people watch. The Duetches museum is also pretty neat. It's a kind of depressing experience, but Dachau is an experience that will stay with you for a long time. I agree with the above posters too. There is no shortage of things to do in and around Munich.
