Upper Bavaria can be seen better in museums than in any other illustrated book. As they tell you all about the people who have influenced Upper Bavaria with their work over the centuries. From the hops farmers in the Hallertau and the first colonialists in the moor of the Danube. From Celts and Romans who left more than just hoards of gold in and around Manching. And from the lumberjacks in the forests of the south.
The farmhouse museum in Amerang and the open-air museum in Glenleiten are sufficient for your whole holiday. In the numerous well-preserved houses and workshops visitors can experience what life was like first-hand for the original inhabitants. And find out more about old handicrafts, different types of fruit and animals. To relax and re-charge your batteries, go to one of the beer gardens with traditional folk music and the views of the mountains and the lakes are free of charge there too.
