What should we do for eight days in Germany?
WE HAVE HAVE EIGHT DAYS IN GERMANY IN MAY, FLYING INTO BERLIN, AND ARE OVERWHELMED BY THE MANY WAYS TO SPEND OUR TIME. WE ARE LOOKING AT SPENDING TIME IN MUNICH AS WELL AND ARE ALSO OPEN TO AN OUTDOOR ADVENTURE – WE ARE IN OUR EARLY 30s AND PRETTY MUCH UP FOR ANYTHING!
Time Out Berlin is a great resource for getting to know the German capital. It’s packed with ideas, whether your thing is exploring remnants of the Berlin Wall or skinny dipping in the Badeschiff. From Munich you’re pretty close to Austria’s alpine region. Why not hire a car and spend some time exploring, it’s absolutely gorgeous. You could head south to Innsbruck, which sits on the floor of the Inn Valley on the banks of the Wipptal River, ringed by the sharp peaks of South Tyrol, then turn west to brush past the eastern shore of Lake Constance. On the edge of the lake, the Bregenzerwald has some fabulous alpine hiking, with lots of marked trails. This is also a big dairy region and the local cheese is famous. The Austrian Tourist information site is another great source of info to help plan your trip. Eight days is tight, but you’re young.
