Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site
The first of Nazi Germany's death camps is in the Munich suburbs, and it's easy to reach by S-Bahn. You can take a guided tour or explore the camp and its museum on your own.

Germany's top alpine resort has world-class skiing and snowboarding, hiking trails, and other activities to keep you busy in winter or summer. It's also a convenient base for day trips to Oberammergau, Mittenwald, and villages in neighboring Austria.

No trip to the Bavarian Alps is complete without a cogwheel-railway and cablecar ascent of Germany's highest mountain near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Come for skiing, snowboarding, and spectacular year-round views of four countries.

Salzburg, Austria is also worth a visit, and it's only a two-hour trip from Munich. See our Salzburg article and  Switzerland & Austria Travel Planner: Salzburg page for more information on Austria's prettiest city.
