I've just returned from Germany, where I've spent two weeks traveling, most of the time in Bavaria (Munich, the Alps and Romantic Road).
As we were traveling by car, we had the opportunity to bring with us a number of books on the area; this is something we wouldn't do if we were flying, as books are heavy!
This book is by far the best one we brought along. Well written, comprehensible and full of suggestions that definitely matched what we found worth seeing, as opposed to what was suggested by a few of the other books we had at hand.
By the way, if you're going with your spouse, don't miss the Romantic Road-trip, which holds a number of interesting medieval towns and castles...and regardless of who you're traveling with (and for what purpose - night life, sightseeing...) don't miss Munich. What an amazing city.
