If you are planning a trip to southern Germany this book is a must.

The maps in the book are all in full colour, as always in this series, showing roads as well as public transport routes.

I used this book as my guide travelling around Munich and I can strongly recommended it to others. The layout of the book is clear and logical which makes choosing destinations and getting there easy. The maps in the book are all in full colour, as always in this series, showing roads as well as public transport routes. Countless illustrations enrich the reading - each carefully drawn so as to say more than a thousand words found in other guides. The choice of restaurants, hotels etc were all great picks. I managed to find a couple of real gems of restaurants in the recommended list here. I can assure that speaking from personal experience: you can use this book with complete confidence!

If you are going to Munich or travelling around Bavaria then this is without doubt the finest guide that you will find. Have a great trip!

If you are planning a trip to southern Germany this book is a must. It covers Munich very well but the real impressive part is the Alps. No matter where you are going in the Alps this book will be helpful. The pictures are wonderful and it makes a great coffee table book when you get home. Highly recommend.

These guides have the best pictures! I don't take them with me though. Too heavy and not as practical as other guides like Rick Steve's. They are great for reading up on your future destination though. Amazon always has them at a good price(as they are not cheap brand new)and it doesn't matter if you buy a used one or one that is a few years old. There's no admission prices in them anyway.

I bought Munich & Bavarian Alps as well as Austria as I am planning a trip there shortly; I have also bought Brussels previously. The great thing about these guide books is that they are details and include almost everything in the areas your looking at. Pictures, history, small area maps, attraction location on maps, tips,,,etc. They are great for planning your trip especially if your planning to explore the surrounding areas and not just Munich.
The only 2 cons to this I have are:
1) The size; it is not very practical to have all this weight when your planning to do a lot of sight-seeing and walking. I don't tend to read about attraction while going to them.
2) I am used to the AAA city guides, which have detailed maps, with all attraction on a separate laminated maps that you can carry with you; they also include a very clear public transport maps, which I find very helpful. The DK guides don't have similar maps, and I had to buy separate maps for the cities I wanted to visit on this trip to carry around with me.

I have used these books for London, Paris, and Rome, and I can tell you they are excellent for figuring out what to see, and do. The graphics are outstanding. My one gripe with this particular book, is the total lack of a subway and train map (they call them S-Bahn and U-Bahn) for Munich. The other DK Eyewitness books, for London, Paris , and Rome, all had these maps of public transport. The Munich system is not just 2 intersecting lines, like the Rome system, but quite a bit more extensive.
I looked it up on line, and was rather surprised at the size of it, but then again, Munich does have approx 1 million people, so it makes sense. It should obviously be included, and is, in several other travel books for this area.

These line if books are great for any traveler. A friend/Travel coordinator let me know about them when I visited Egypt a few years back. I recently bought one for Germany, Bavaria and all I can say is outstanding! I was able to see so many places and had so much information before hand the need for a travel guide wasn't even necessary. I would recommended this this reference to anyone.

If you have other DK books you'll be aware that they have a distinctive design. Unfortunately in the travel guide category they're just too confusing and poorly laid out to recommend. I say unfortunately because they really do provide a great deal of information coupled with colorful maps, pictures and just enough hotel/restaurant info to not overwhelm you with too many choices. However, this is one of those books that you'll probably wear out the index pages trying to find all the info on a given area. The main section on Munich is quite satisfactory in content, but the organization is very problematic with a lot of page jumping necessary. The section on the Bavarian Alps is where the book really falls down as the authors chose to chop up the various regions in odd chunks that didn't seem to present a coherent picture of the area. For my own use I would have preferred larger and fewer subdivisions with better connecting maps. It's a shame too because the book is a nice size with substantial plasticized covers.

This would be helpful to acquire for trip planning purposes but seemed to me to be less useful as a carry along. Regardless of what travel guide you choose for southern Germany, I'd highly recommend getting the "Michelin atlas of Germany, Benelux, Austria, Switzerland & Czech Republic" (the "orange" one). It's been completely redone for 2011 and is excellent to have even if you're not driving. IF YOU ARE DRIVING I would also highly recommend " Via Corsa's Car Lover's Guide to Southern Germany" as a very interesting and informative adjunct to the more traditional tour guides. It's a specialty book focused on the rich automotive tradition of the area (VW, Porsche, M-B, Audi) with a great deal of info on auto museums, road racing venues, etc.
