  • Regensburg – this city on the river Danube has a Southern European flair in summer; the medieval core is a UNESCO world heritage site and always worth a visit
  • Nuremberg – the cultural and economic centre of Northern Bavaria, with an impressive imperial castle, and a nice old town (certainly worth a visit albeit much of it destroyed in WW II)
