Typical Bavarian Lifestyle, I would say is heavy food and beer! And lots of great architecture…just read the following story and conclude yourself 😉

München was named for “near the monks” an area of Germany where monks were living, and more importantly producing beer. Apparently beer was made when monks were fasting for lent. They were not permitted to eat bread and instead developed their own “liquid” form of bread.

Also second evidence of rich Bavarian Lifestyle is a fact that the residents of München consider themselves Bavarians first then German’s second. München falls in the region of Bavaria and there is much pride over that fact.

But let’s start from the beginning!

München is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria, on the banks of River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, and the 12th biggest city of the European Union.

The city is a major centre of art, advanced technologies, finance, publishing, culture, innovation, education, business, and tourism.

Marienplatz  is a central square in the city centre of Munich, Germany. It has been the city’s main square since 1158 while the region was part of Holy Roman Empire. There is beautiful city hall in a Gothic Revival architecture style with the column of Virgin Mary.

Just behind the main square is the Frauenkirche. A beautiful Church of Our Dear Lady. Much of the interior was destroyed during World War II. An attraction that survived is the Teufelstritt, or Devil’s Footstep, at the entrance. The legend says, the devil made a deal with the builder to finance construction of the church on the condition that it contain no windows. The clever builder, however, tricked the devil by positioning columns so that the windows were not visible from the spot where the devil stood in the foyer. When the devil discovered that he had been tricked, he could not enter the already consecrated church. The devil could only stand in the foyer and stomp his foot furiously, which left the dark footprint that remains visible in the church’s entrance today.

Another example of typical Bavarian architecture is Fachwerkhaus, germ timber frame house.


The Hofbräuhaus am Platzl is a beer hall in Munich, originally built in 1589 by Bavarian Duke Maximilian I. Later became famous as a place where Hitler and Nazis were gathering and drinking beer with famous german Bratzel and sausage.

From the modern architecture, a must see is the Allianz Arena – a football stadium in Munich, and the headquarters of BMW company.

Half way from Munich to Stuttgart there is a  Legoland park located in Günzburg which opened in 2002. It is a popular theme park containing Lego reproductions of various German cities and rural landscapes.

The very next day, my brother and I decided to visit a nineteenth-century romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill near small city called Füssen. The Palace was built by  Ludwig II of Bavaria as a hommage to Richard Wagner – a 19 century german composer. It is a constant inspiration for the movie sets like Disneyland’s  cartoon The Sleeping Beauty.



The castle is called Schloss Neuschwanstein which means New Swanstone Castle. Apparently, Luddwig ll of Bavaria was a bit unstable when it comes to mental health, known as the eccentric and troubled individual. He adored swans and the mentioned composer R. Wagner. In the central of the castle is theatre, opera and Wagner’s works. King Ludwig was entirely obsessed with Wagner, who was a close friend. On his death, Ludwig was said to be devastated. Well, you do the math what happened here 😉

Every part of Neuschwanstein reflects the troubled and eccentric life of King Ludwig. It reflects his obsessions with the work of Wagner, his preoccupations with the noble lives of medieval royalty, and his desire to retreat into a solitary world of fantasy beliefs. The interior walls of the castle are adorned with murals which depict the legends behind Wagner’s operas.

Ludwig’s excessive spending on Neuschwanstein bankrupted the state of Bavaria which made locals furious. He killed himself by drowning in a nearby lake, unhappy and unloved.

Unfortunately, Ludwig ll did not finish the castle but he did himself beautiful inner garden surrounded by a walled courtyard and an artificial cave as an escape of his daily duties as a duke. Inside the cave there is a lake, a boat in a shape of a shelf where he would lay listening the choir performing the Wagner’s operas…
