  1. We live in Las Vegas and have a Brauhaus that is a replica of the one in Munich and it would be interesting to see the original one day. The photo of the castle looks almost like a fairy tale. You’ve made Germany look like a very attractive place to visit one day.

  2. I always dream to visit Neuschwanstein castle in Germany. I visited Berlin recently and it’s very unique itself. Would love to visit all the must-go places on your list.

  3. That castle just looks like something straight out of a fairy tale! It is so Beautiful! I love this great little itinerary here, looks like the perfect way to spend a week

  7. I loved this as it gave me an over view of Germany. I found the mention of Anne Frank House missing from this list. That is at number one on my wishlist. Ever since I read the book Diary Of Anne Frank, I had wanted to visit the house.

  8. There are so many incredible sights and places to visit in Germany. I’ve only gotten to Berlin so far, but Munich and the Bavarian Alps are at the top of my list for my next visit!

  9. I love Germany, definitely need to get to Neuschwanstein castle soon! The pictures are so pretty. This is a great itinerary if you only have a short time.

  10. Very helpful itinerary. I am off to Germany next month on my 6 weeks Europe discovery. I loved the recommendation on Bavaria alps. I am a nature lover, would love to explore

    1. Yes for the castle there is entrance fees. You can book online to a avoid standing in huge Q. Berlin is modern city famous for that historic wall.

  11. All of these German cities look amazing. I’ve always wanted to see the Neuschwanstein castle so that would be number one on my list. But Frankfurt looks amazing – I am a city girl at heart so that would be high up on my list too!

  12. I did a study abroad in Germany and loved visiting places around the country. I made it to Neuschwanstein and Frankfurt, but need to try to get to Heidelberg. And Munich was really cool to visit too. Thanks for the itinerary!

  13. You have a great itinerary here to see Germany. Munich, Garmisch(Bavarian Alps), Heidelberg, Frankfurt and the Black Forest all look beautiful from your pictures, perfect for photographer. I still need to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle in Fussen, the photo of the castle is one of the best I’ve seen!

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE your list!!! My husband and I are dying to do a proper Germany trip. We’ve only been to Berlin, but want to spend a few weeks traveling around. We might have to use your suggestions! And that castle looks incredible!

  15. Another really thorough post and while it’s impossible to see all of the German highlights in just a week, you certainly managed to pack in a few of the best. Neuschwanstein castle in Fussen looks absolutely incredible and really, the beer in Munich is a must. That being said, I would always advise tourists heading to Germany to stop by Cologne, my favourite city in the country

  16. Excellent itinerary! The Harry Potter fangirl in me thinks Neuschwanstein castle looks a little bit like Hogwarts. We’ll be heading to Europe in 2018 so we’ll definitely be putting these highlights on our list of must-do’s!

  17. I’ve been to Germany twice before, but actually missed a lot of these. I’d love to take a cable car up to the Bavarian Alps and try out skiing! It must be quite an experience! Btw I love the picture of Neuwschwanstein Castle in Fussen – what a fairy tale shot!

  18. I just love the photos in this post. Germany looks so beautiful. My favorite would have to be the castle with that stunning mountain backdrop. The itinerary is extremely useful and it all made this so enjoyable to read. Thank you.

  19. Wow Berlin isn’t even on your list, and wowowowo that castle in Garmisch is a total dream! Would you tell us why Berlin is not part of your list? We keep hearing so many good things about the place that if we go and don’t stop by, is like we haven’t seen Germany properly!

  20. This is such a fab post!! I’ve already visited Munich twice but really want to go again just to head to Neuschwanstein castle with my sister, so I could totally use this itinerary as a base when that trip comes to light!

  21. I’ve never had much interest in visiting Germany but your photo of Neuschwanstein castle is making me second guess everything! That is absolutely stunning. I’m adding the Bavarian Alps to my travel wish list!

  22. Great suggestions! This itinerary is quite similar to the one I was on for a school trip when I was 15 and travelling to Europe from Australia for the first time. I will never forget seeing Neuschwanstein Castle in the snow. It was so amazing! thanks for helping me remember how much I love Germany.

  23. The Neuschwanstein castle in Fussen looks like it comes straight out of a fairytale, stunning! Normally I always go by car to Germany (from The Netherlands) but the Euro Rail pass seems like a great alternative. Thank you for sharing your trip and practical tips.

  24. What an awesome itinerary, it seems to cover everything! Thanks for sharing, this will come in handy as we are visiting Germany later this year. Trying all of the beer and visiting the Neuschwanstein castle are top our list – it looks like something out of a fairytale!

  25. Great itinerary! I’m hoping to visit Munich this winter for the Christmas market. I would have loved to visit the Neuschwanstein castle too. The castle looks amazing – like taken out of a Disney movie!

  26. Really nice itinerary! I haven’t visited any of thoses so it’s a good suggestion. I wish you wrote more about Black Forest since I’m planning to visit there. The picture of Neuschwanstein castle is beautiful too!

  27. I love Germany that is so much to do and see there and don’t get me started about the history :-). Reading your recommendations took me right back there especially your section on Neuschwanstein. I remember being there and understanding why the Disney castle is based on it.

  28. I love Germany. In fact, when I was in high school our jazz band did a 10 day tour playing in lots of little pubs. It’s one of my happiest memories. My husband love it too, especially for the beer!

  29. my goodness the Neuschwanstein castle looks so magical and so unreal hahaha.. it was like those castles depicted in our childhood fairytal.. it reminds me of the Beauty and the Beast castle.. this place is truly worth visiting.. is the castle accepting tourists to explore the interior??

  30. I must say that you are sharing really helpful information about traveling. When I will plan a trip to Germany I will surely consider your advice and go to the places you have shared here.

  31. I would love to visit the Bavarian Alps sometimes. I have heard how beautiful they are and how amazing it is to hike there in summer.

  32. Germany is on my bucket list…may be sometime soon ….Neuschwanstein castle looks like straight out of a fairy tale!
