Munich, Bavaria & the Black Forest (Regional Travel Guide) Reviews
I usually pick up an older edition of lonely planet whenever I am planning on international trip. I use it predominantly for maps and recommendations on itineraries. I get the older editions to save money since the major landmarks and highlights don't typically change very much. I was able to get around using this guide and I also used some of the outlined schedules.This is not the best edition if you are looking for dining and hotel recommendations as most of the information is out of date.
This book was accurate in its reviews but we found it not as comprehensive as we would like. Many of the towns we passed through or were in the area of were not included. I also found flipping through the guide to find things confusingly organised and felt the index was incomplete.
Like all travel books, the material is a bit dated, but out of the many imprints, I'm an unabashed & loyal Lonely Planet fan. There's lots of great history and culture, and although far from perfect, you'll do a lot worse with other imprints in my experience. Very helpful on a recent trip. And a personal hint to travelers - buying used copies is often better since the previous owner(s) will correct, add, or cross out information that makes it even more helpful. A decent book about a lovely place - recommended!
Like most of the Lonely Planet guides I've bought, this contains the right mix of obvious tourist stops and hard-to-find treasures. The only way to improve the Bavarian guide is to include the neighboring sections of Austria. With the opening of the borders to passport free travel and the adoption of the euro, neighboring Austrian Tirol is little more than southern Bavaria's back yard. Seems silly to buy a Vienna centric Austrian guide just to get recommendations on a handful of towns near the German border.
Very informative and up to date with information. I am planning on making a visit to the Munich area when I head to Germany in March and have found this book quite helpful with my planning stages!
If you're only bringing one book for your trip, this is definitely the book to get! Although I do wish there was a book just for Munich, this one has excellent information. I would recommend pairing it with the Borsch map, which is truly fantastic. If you're traveling around the region, this book will be perfect as well. Great solid info!
I highly recommend this book. I spent a summer in Bavaria (and visited The Black Forest) and this book proved extremely helpful and interesting.
This travel guide was great help for us when we visited Bavaria. I also very much like it that Lonely Planet books provide just the right amount of historical insight and are written with a wonderfully subtle sense of humor.
