From the Alps reaching into the clouds to the lush Danube basin, the Free State of Bavaria is a place that keeps everything that clichés promise. Fairytale castles left behind by a Bavarian king, cow bells ringing on the neck of their cows grazing on flower-strewn meadows, lederhosen and dirndl robes worn by the people in their medieval fortified towns when they pursue their work today like after a journey through time.

But Bavaria's diversity offers more than just the idyll of fairy tales. In Ingolstadt you can learn something about the latest engine technology, in Nuremberg and Berchtesgaden you can get an insight into Nazi madness, wine can be tasted in Würzburg. The destinations are often described with the attribute «there's something for everyone here", in the case of Bavaria it's close and no big exaggeration.
And, no matter what you do in Germany's southeast, with a bit of luck and sensitivity you will find the coziness that is so much praised in Bavaria.
How You travel is a matter of taste. Very individual. Not really negotiable. And then it's the same every year: «Where we go?»
I won't go into the infinite possibilities here, you know them well enough yourself - at the latest when the offspring screams from behind from the corner (following an old commercial): «I want cows! »
To make a long story short: culture, movement, nature, ... Not to forget culinary delights become - already important, but nevertheless - accessories. The essential aspect is to get to know the country and its people. The easiest way to do this is with a caravan, because here I take care of myself, experience my own adventure unfiltered, directly and self-experienced.
At the end of a journey I can rightly say: «I know this area.» , and the people there.
I have also found in this region that which cannot be captured and framed either on screen or in photo and film files and can say: this part of Germany and its people I know.
