It is only a three hour driving difference and only 275 kilometers from Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide) that crosses Bolzano, Innsbruck and Rosenheim (Rosenheim vacation rentals | Rosenheim travel guide), Also the route to the North German shore of Lake Constance through the Austrian Bregenz is only 320 kilometers. Even the 440-mile drive from St. Leonhard in the Passaier Württemberg's state capital to Stuttgart (Stuttgart vacation rentals | Stuttgart travel guide) to Ulm (Ulm vacation rentals | Ulm travel guide) and Innsbruck can be accomplished in a five-hour bus ride. One can arrive either by train or by plane from Bolzano and stay in the regions of northern and eastern Germany.

Because of the historical ties between South Tyrol and Bavaria, a trip to Germany will more than suffice. Annual visitors to the area come out to around 10 million guests, approximately 4.5 million of whom come from abroad. Not only is the historical center of Munich at the Marienplatz but also other sights like Liebfrauendom and City Hall, the Olympic site, Bayern Allianz Arena, the Nymphenburg Palace, the unique German Museum and the Alte Pinakothek. A few kilometers south of the city lies the rapidly attainable Voralpenlandschaft the Starnberger and Ammersee, and the home of the famous monastery of Andechs (Andechs vacation rentals | Andechs travel guide).

Those who prefer a trip to the border triangle of Switzerland, Austria and Germany can visit Constance, Friedrichshafen (Friedrichshafen vacation rentals | Friedrichshafen travel guide), the Zeppelin Museum, Zeppelin flight over the lake, and impressive Alpine landscape. A boat ride across Lake Constance can also be taken.
