Every mile uniquely Bavarian
If it isn't enough that the German Alpine Road offers a multitude of spectacular panoramic views along its entire length, its cultural attractions, one after another, also pepper the route with about 25 ancient castles, monasteries and picturesque palaces along the way, including, of course, the internationally famous royal palaces of Neuschwanstein and Herrenchiemsee.
A quintessentially Bavarian way of life
The holiday region of the Bavarian Alps scales the popularity charts with tourists not just for the rich diversity of natural and cultural experiences, but because the quality of life is so high too. After work locals enjoy good food, drinks and enjoyment with their neighbours.
Germany's oldest touring road
The German Alpine Road is the oldest touring road in Germany. It was first mentioned in 1879 - in the publication of a historical travel log from 1858 by the Bavarian King Maximillian II (1811-1864). His journey along the route, and attractions seen, were in large part the same as today.
