Avanti and Bavaria Tourism Launch Educational Program

Bavaria Tourism and wholesale FIT tour operator Avanti Destinations have partnered to launch an educational program and e-brochure for travel agents, introducing two new, customizable itineraries highlighting both traditional and under-the-radar destinations and activities beyond Munich and its famous Oktoberfest.

Available on Avanti’s agent portal, the 30-page e-brochure, Bavaria: Beyond Expectations, can be downloaded and forwarded to clients. With a useful map of the different Bavarian regions, the e-brochure describes many experiences and attractions that can appeal to travelers of all ages: Countless castles and palaces; more than 1,400 museums, including Munich’s BMW World and Nuremberg’s 600-year old toy museum; medieval town centers with half-timbered houses and cobblestone streets, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites; driving the scenic Romantic Road; the pilgrimage town of Altötting with its Black Madonna; hiking, cycling and skiing; Bayreuth’s opera festival (in Richard Wagner’s hometown); the traditional Passion Play performed every 10 years for the past 380 years by the residents of Oberammergau; handicraft-filled Christmas markets; and plenty of opportunities to sample bratwurst, gingerbread, wine and beer. 

The two itineraries are:
