Bavaria is my absolute favorite part of Germany. It’s iconic, friendly,  flowing with great beer, and filled with incredible fairytale castles.

Munich City Guide

Munich is a beautiful city, filled with history and culture. Although Munich is quite a big city with a population close to 1.5 million, it still manages to retain a bit of a small town vibe. The city brims with festive beer halls, some of the country’s best shopping, and feels like the friendliest place in Germany.

Amsterdam is a quirky city where plenty of off-beat design touches flourish. Among the dangerously crooked houses you’ll find eccentric boutique shops, artistic graffiti, and bursts of bright orange, the unofficial national color.
