Frankfurt is best known as a banking powerhouse, trade-fair venue and air hub, but ask the residents of Germany’s most cosmopolitan city what they like about living there and they’ll mention the excellent quality of life, flowery parkland, laid-back cafes and pulsating nightlife. Just an hour west – past the cathedral city of Mainz, where Gutenberg invented printing – flows the Romantic Rhine, whose storied castles and snug wine villages have drawn artists and tourists since the early 19th century. Vineyards also stretch along the dramatic hillsides above the serpentine Moselle River and, just north of Alsace (France), along the German Wine Route – in both areas, crisp rieslings can all be sampled in a multitude of ambience-laden wine taverns. For sheer romance, though, it’s hard to beat the ancient university city of Heidelberg, where something is always brewing – beer, of course, but also deep thoughts and culture both high and popular.

     Around Munich

The natural habitat of well-wheeled power dressers and Lederhosen -clad thigh-slappers, Mediterranean-style street cafes and Mitteleuropa beer halls, high-brow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s unofficial southern capital is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine clichés, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis has many an unexpected card down its Dirndl .

But whatever else this city is, it’s popular. Statistics show Munich is enticing more visitors than ever, especially in summer and during Oktoberfest when the entire planet seems to arrive to toast the town.

Munich’s walkable centre retains a small-town air but holds some world-class sights, especially its art galleries and museums. Throw in royal Bavarian heritage, an entire suburb of Olympic legacy and a kitbag of dark tourism and you see why southern Germany’s metropolis is such a favourite among those who seek out the past, but like to hit the town once they’re done.

Salzburg & Salzburgerland

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

Salzburg & Salzburgerland

One of Austria’s smallest provinces, Salzburgerland is proof that size really doesn’t matter. Well, not when you have Mozart, Maria von Trapp and the 600-year legacy of the prince-archbishops behind you. This is the land that grabbed the world spotlight and shouted ‘Visit Austria!’ with Julie Andrews skipping joyously down the mountainsides. This is indeed the land of crisp apple strudel, dancing marionettes and high-on-a-hilltop castles. This is the Austria of your wildest childhood dreams.

Salzburg is every bit as grand as you imagine it: a baroque masterpiece, a classical-music legend and Austria’s spiritual heartland. But it is just the prelude to the region’s sensational natural beauty. Just outside the city, the landscape is etched with deep ravines, glinting ice caves, karst plateaux and mountains of myth – in short, the kind of alpine gorgeousness that no well-orchestrated symphony or yodelling nun could ever quite capture.

» Prices peak in family-friendly alpine resorts during winter, from December to early April. Salzburg twinkles at its Christmas markets. In January orchestras strike up at Mozartwoche, while hot-air balloons glide above Filzmoos’ summits.
