Photo of Munich, Bavarian Castles and the Alps (A Photo Series) by Diptarka Gupta

Situated in Southern Germany, just north of the Alps the Bavarian Capital Munich is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. It is also one of the most cultural and historic city in the country. After the World War II, Munich's central part was rebuilt keeping the old world charm. The city's rich heritage can be seen from the magnificent Baroque palaces, crown jewels and great paintings. A trip to Munich is incomplete without visiting the huge Beers Halls with great atmosphere. Zugspitze, the highest mountain of Germany lies to the south of Munich on the Austrian border. With beautiful fairytale like castles built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria around the city makes a visit to Munich an awesome experience.

Tried to hike up to Marienbrücke to get the classic view of Neuschwanstein Castle, but extremely slippery conditions didn't allow me to go further. Bur got a view of Hohenschwangau Castle, lakes and grasslands covered in snow in this attempt.
