Munich and the Foothills of the Alps

Munich and the Foothills of the Alps

In Munich, where locals specialize in good living, we visit boisterous markets and go for Baroque palaces...While office workers surf in the Isar River. Heading into the foothills of the Alps, we take a spin around a Maypole; drop by Oberammergau-the Shirley Temple of Bavarian villages; and tour the fairy-tale castles of 'Mad' King Ludwig. After hiking up to a desolate ruined castle, we soar even higher in a glider over the Tyrol.
