Upper Bavaria

Unrivalled for variety, Upper Bavaria (total area 17,529 sq kms) with its 18 tourist regions offers an impressive alpine world, charming alpine foothills, rolling moraine hills and extensive plains, characteristic rivers and almost 200 lakes, without even mentioning the abundance of art and culture.  Upper Bavaria - as the most important and largest tourist region in both the Free State of Bavaria and in Germany as a whole - offers a striking variety of landscapes and historical towns - first and foremost Munich, the cultural metropolis and capital city of the state - and places of interest of international standing (for example, the castles built by the fairytale king, Ludwig II).  The region is ideal for city trips, family holidays, or for those who just want to put everyday life behind them for a while and seek the chance to unwind, relax and re-energise.  And if you are on the move and want to save money, the OberbayernCard is a great option.  The small chip card issued by the tourist association of Munich-Upper Bavaria entitles the holder to free or reduced admission to over 100 attractions in Upper Bavaria, such as the Audi museum 'mobile', or for shopping at the factory outlet centre Ingolstadt Village.
For those who wish to explore Upper Bavaria by bike, there are endless kilometres of signposted bike trails for all levels of proficiency.  The Danube reaches Upper Bavarian ground in the district of Neuburg-Schrobenhausen near Rennertshofen and weaves its way downstream past the Renaissance town of Neuburg on the Danube and the Bavarian city of Ingolstadt with its mediaeval fortifications. The river leaves Upper Bavaria near Großmehring in the district of Eichstätt and flows on into Eastern Bavaria.
