The capital of Bavaria is Munich and over 12 million people live in Bavaria. Bavaria is Germany's most popular tourist destination. Where is Bavaria located in Germany? Munich is the capital of Bavaria and is not the city to miss. Munich’s strong relation to it’s culture has lead to a vast array of theaters and museums, symphony orchestras, ballet companies, art galleries and a world-class opera house. Another way Munich celebrates their culture is the most famous and largest festival in the world, Oktoberfest. With 6 million attending each year it is an important part of Bavarian culture. Munich Destination Germany A Trip To Germany
by Annaliese Campbell Neuschwanstein Castle – Germany's fairytale castle. Neuschwanstein Castle, one of the most famous and most photographed sights in Germany. Captivating a magical fairytale coming to life this castle sits on the perfect location. Built on a top of a rugged rock with a splendid view over the terrific sight of the Alps. Walt Disney used the Neuschwanstein Castle as inspiration for creating the Disney princess castles including in the story of Sleeping Beauty. This makes the fairytale castle the number one attraction in Bavaria visited by a total of five million people a year. King Ludwig II used the spirit of his times by creating these famous fairytale castles using magnificent architecture and spectacular locations to create an unforgettable sight. Nuremberg Nuremberg is over 950 years old and is Bavaria's second largest city after Munich. You could be mistaken for thinking you were in a Brothers Grimm story among the olden styled streets and houses. Nuremberg is famous for their spectacular Christmas market and is one of Bavaria’s biggest attractions. The city is also famous for its Nuremberg trials between 1945 to 1946, for German officials involved in the Holocaust and other war crimes. Nuremberg attracts tourists all over the world and locals to flock to Nuremberg every spring to experience the Blue Night. Light installations cover buildings and entire streets in a blue glow. The Blue Night, Nuremberg, Germany Passau, also known as the “City of Three Rivers”, is a town located lower Bavaria. The town’s uniqueness comes from its culture and architecture. Passau is a place that is modern and still celebrates all its great traditions. Nowhere else in the world than Passau stay alive for all this time with it's pedestrians streets, pretty little lanes, beautiful roads and buildings. There are many river cruises down the Danube start at Passau. Many say that there is nothing quiet like drifting down a river on luxury boat with scenery that covers the whole view and for many this is the most elegant way to travel. In this modern, yet extremely historical town Passau has a uniqueness set idyllically on the three rivers. Passau (City of Three Rivers) Dachau memorial concentration camp In 1933, the Nazis established their first major concentration camp outside the town of Dachau, 18 kilometers from Munich. There they developed a network that would ultimately spread over half of Europe and result in the brutalization and murder of millions. In 1965 what had been the first concentration camp in Nazi Germany became the first Memorial Site in Germany. Now many companies offer tours to Dachau memorial concentration camp and has become a massive tourist attraction. Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial of people in the camp Sign on the gates for the Dachau concentration camp memorial: "Work will make you free" Events in Germany-A world of entertainment. Kempten Christmas Markets In the old historical quarter, is one of the biggest Christmas markets, the Kempten Christmas Market. There are more than 70 Christmas market stalls offering Christmas crafts and gift ideas along with many sweet treats and beverages such as a warm mug of hot chocolate. Traditional foods such as hot chestnuts, candied almonds and apples, German bratwurst sausages are sold. The festive music on stage and the surrounded scenery with mountains, lakes and forests, creates a real Christmas magical mood. In Kempten’s Christmas post office children can post their letters to Christ who then brings them their presents for Christmas Day. Kempten Christmas Markets Oktoberfest is not just a biggest and famous German festival but is the world largest beer festival. Germany celebrates Oktoberfest the most enthusiasm. Oktoberfest lasts for sixteen days beginning from the third weekend of September to the first Sunday of October. It has millions of international fans and has spawned many imitations around the world.
Oktoberfest celebration is over 200 years old. The first Oktoberfest ever took place on October 12th 1810 in Munich. On this day King Ludwig I married Princess Therese in front of the citizens of Munich. The celebration was so grand the citizens decided to honor it for years to come. Since then the Germans have religiously celebrated the carnival.
The 16-day party attracts over 6 million people every year who consume 1.5 million gallons of beer and 200,000 pork sausages. EVENTS IN GERMANY The current exchange rate between
the Australian Dollar and the Euro. 1 Australian dollar = 0.7929 Euros $ € Destination- Germany money and costs How much money you need is depends of what type of traveler you are and the season on which you are visiting. A single economy return plain ticket to Germany cost approximately $3000, a single German hotel room booked for 13 nights costs with breakfast and dinner included around $1000 ($77 per night) and a single train ride from Munich to Berlin costs approximately $200. I would also need money for shopping, money for groceries and restaurant occasions as well as visiting landmarks + tours guides costing around $800 with a bit extra just in case. In total my trip to Germany would cost $5000. Which hotel? Where? Why? As I was looking through the many hotels in Munich I realized that hotels are expensive and they don't show the side of Germany I want to discover. I then found out about historic hotels. Hotel Laimer Hof is the name and it is situated in the heart of Nymphenburg 20 minutes drive out of Munich. I chose this hotel because its reasonably cheap and it's exclusive location in walking distance to Nymphenburg Castle, historical sites and museums. Built in 1886 and is one of the traditional heritage buildings Hotel Laimer Hof has turned into a popular place for visitors who want to experience the cultures of Germany to come and stay with them. A Journey Though Munich's Tourist Attractions Munich is filled with culture and historical attractions that make up the city's own style. My choice was the Viktualienmarkt, a daily food market which displays a variety of exotic German foods in the center of Munich. Originally developed for farmers to sell their freshest food such as cheese, wurst, fruit, vegetables, fish, flowers and herbs this market has turned into a popular tourist attraction. This is the way to discover herbs and spices that can't be found anywhere else in the region. Viktualienmarkt 1900 Viktualienmarkt munich 2012 Munich holds three historic museums all in walking distance between each other. The Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek, and the Pinakothek der Moderne with each having it's own personality and specialty. The Alte Pinakothek has over 800 Middle Ages masterpieces and has influenced the building architecture throughout Europe. The Neue Pinakothek displays paintings and sculptors from the 19th century and features the private art collection of King Ludwig I. Lastly there's the Pinakothek der Moderne. It is the largest museum for modern art in Germany taking seven years to complete on a $120 million budget. Munich's Museums The Alte Pinakothek 1900 The Neue Pinakothek 1880 The Pinakothek der Moderne Frauenkirche Frauenkirche, Munich, Bavaria, Germany No building is allowed to be built higher than their 99m for fear of ruining the city's skyline except for the iconic dome towers and church connected behind known as Frauenkirche. Frauenkirche has become a symbol for city starting off with just the church taking 20 years to make then the domes were added 30 years later. The cathedral can hold approximately 20,000 people. It suffered during World War II when the roof collapsed and one of the towers was severely damaged. What makes Frauenkirche famous is the legend of the Devil. The legend goes that the Devil and the builder made a deal for the devil to finance the construction on the condition that the church was to be windowless. The builder agreed but could not resist the temptation of installing windows. The builder position 22 columns so that when the Devil stood at the entrance it was not visible to see the windows built. Soon the Devil had figured out the builder secret and through a tantrum. He was so furious that he stamped his foot imprinting the floor with a black foot print still remaining today and stormed out creating an evil spirit in the wind around the church. Frauenkirche interior Devil's footprint I think the reasons why I chose these tourist attractions is because I like all the things that they are. For example, I like trying new things when it comes to food and it seems like the Viktualienmarkt is an important part of Munich's history. All three museums are all different and I loved looking and learning about the art and culture of places around the world. Lastly there's Frauenkirche, what I find appealing is the architecture which is involved with the legend about the Devil. All these things make me want to visit them. Why these tourist attractions? restaurants Everywhere in Munich you can certainly find somewhere with good food and a great atmosphere. Munich's traditional style of food is Bavarian cooking. This includes hearty, rustic and making very simple ingredients into tasty, satisfying dishes.Restaurants like Dallmayr and Restaurant Königshof serve gourmet German meals. A German food specialty that I am looking forward to eating is Weisswurst. Weisswurst is is a traditional Bavarian sausage made from very finely minced veal and fresh pork bacon and was created in Munich on February 22, 1857. Since then it has become a very important part of Bavaria cooking and lifestyle. Dallmayr, Munich Restaurant Königshof weisswurst Munich Berlin From Munich to Berlin I personally would rather ride a train for the convenience, opportunity and pleasure. My favourite type of transport is train and is cheaper than booking a plane ticket and is faster than driving a car. THE
WALL August 12th, 1961 Berlin Wall 2012 For more than 30 years tourists come to Berlin to see the Berlin Wall. Today tourists will visit the Berlin Wall as a historical tourist attraction. The Berlin Wall is still known as a symbol of the Cold War and separation. Parts of the Berlin Wall has disappeared entirely. After the fall of the Berlin Wall. Certain parts of the concrete barricade were left standing. Today, they are painted over with various artists’ creations The Berlin Wall was built in the dead of night and for 28 years kept East Germans from fleeing to the West. The Berlin Wall stretched over a hundred miles. It ran not only through the center of Berlin, but also wrapped around West Berlin, entirely cutting West Berlin off from the rest of East Germany. There had been rumors that something might happen the border of East and West Berlin, but no one was expecting the speed of the Wall. On midnight on the night of August 12-13, 1961, trucks with soldiers and construction workers came through East Berlin. They dug holes to put up concrete posts, and strung barbed wire all across the border creating the famous Berlin wall. Berliners were shocked when they woke up that morning and whichever side of the border you went to sleep on during the night of August 12, they were stuck on that side for decades. The Berlin Wall is one of Berlin's famous historical sites and is the number 1 monument of the past in Berlin. I would visit The Berlin Wall for the site's history. Berlin's largest city park, and one of the largest in Europe is known as The Tiergarten. Designed as a hunting ground for the rulers of Brandenburg, it is now enjoyed by thousands of Berliners every day.Although heavily damaged during World War II, Tiergarten was the recipient of heavy restoration investment to restore it to its former state. Throughout the park, there are over 25 kilometers of walking paths and a number of lakes, which are quite popular with Berlin locals. A number of Berlin's main attractions are also located inside or around the park. Guests to the park can also visit The Victory Column (Siegessäule), the statue of a golden-hued goddess that stands upon a column made of red granite. The name Tiergarten literally means "animal garden", and in many German cities Tiergarten means the Zoo. While Berlin's Zoo borders the Tiergarten, the Tiergarten itself is home only to the usual wildlife images Tiergarten history Tiergarten itself The reason I would visit Tiergarten would be because of the park's beauty and it would be a great place to relax. UNESCO defines “an outstanding example of the Enlightenment vision of making art publicly accessible, given material form in a central urban setting.” Berlin’s Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a unique island of five museums. A cultural and architectural monument of great significance. It was awarded UNESCO World Heritage listed in 1999. Experience a historical journey through 6,000 years of the of art and culture. It is home to a total of than five museums including: These five buildings exhibit art works from the 19th century alongside archaeological collections, and are a daily attraction to thousands of visitors interested in art and culture.
I think it would be exciting to visit Museum Island as it is World Heritage Listed. The Altes Museum (Old Museum) The Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) The Bode Museum The Neues Museum (New Museum) The Pergamon Museum Overall The Friedrichstadt-Palast is Europe's most modern Show Palace with the biggest theatre stage in the world! With 700,000 visitors a year, it is the number 1 nightlife destination in Berlin. Friedrichstadt-Palast is a large historic landmark building with around 2000 seats to fill. Over 100 artists, excellent dancers, musicians in the shows performing nightly. If you want to experience something extraordinary in Berlin something that is unique and visually appealing, then Friedrichstadt-Palast is yours and my choice for a tourist attraction. Friedrichstadt-Palast Friedrichstadt-Palast audience Friedrichstadt-Palast Visiting a landmark of great history significance and beauty such as The Brandenburg Gate is the type of thing I would love to see in Berlin. Brandenburg Gate A well known symbol of Berlin, located near the border between East and West Berlin, it then became a symbol of a divided city. Over two hundred years of history, the Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlins most important monuments representing a reunified Berlin. It was originally part of the Berlin Wall and was the main entrance to the city. It is the only remaining gate of which Berlin was once entered through. It was commissioned by King Frederick William II as a sign of peace Running out of money? Right at the end of your holiday? Don't worry there's another way Ever Heard About A Hostel? Hostel is defined as a an establishment that provides cheap food and lodging for a specific group of people, such as students, workers, or travelers. Hostels are much cheaper than hotels which can save you a lot of money during your stay at Berlin. Baxpax Downtown Hostel Room Images Baxpax Downtown Hostel Located right in the centre of Berlin, between the shopping area Friedrichstraße and Museum Island. Only a 10-minute walk to Brandenburg Gate. Also easy accessibility from all airports and train stations in Berlin. Saving over half of what you could of spent on a hotel. Making my way back to Australia On the journey of making my
way back to Australia I would
book a shuttle bus to pick me
up from the hostel and take me to Berlin Airport where there I will get on an plane and depart to Sydney at approximately 6:00pm. On the way to Sydney I will have to get on different planes at these stops. Such as the plane will stop at Vienna International Airport then Dubai International Airport. At around 7:00am I will be at Sydney Airport. I will have another shuttle bus take me to my house. In Conclusion In conclusion I have learned lots about Germany and is definitely now one of the places where I would like to visit. During this research assignment I have learned a lot about life and culture in Germany and the similarities and differences between Germany and Sydney as countries. I never would of thought that food could be so different on the other side of the world. Buildings and monuments are the symbols of Germany telling history and how Germany has changed overtime. Germany has thousands of attractions and I realize now why Germany is so popular to visit. I thought a Prezi was the best way to present my assignment and the information I used was from serious websites. THE END A TRIP TO GERMANY By Annaliese Campbell Disney castle Neuschwanstein Castle Why did I choose these towns and cities? I chose these towns and cities because I thought each place was different from each other with their buildings, locations and history and each would be exiting to visit. bibliography
