From the Publisher

Bavaria is by far the most popular destination in Germany for both international and domestic tourists. This is no real surprise since it includes such a wide range of attractions. Castles, palaces, monasteries, churches and historical towns abound. Nuremberg, with its Nazi background, is in Bavaria, as are the idyllic Alpine villages of Berchtesgaden and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, not to mention the Romantic Road, with Dinkelsbuhl, Augsburg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber. But the region's main attraction is Munich, which has an astonishing range of excellent museums, traditional beer gardens and beer halls, as well as numerous restaurants serving everything from international fast-food to delicious haute cuisine. The city hosts classical music concerts and the original Oktoberfest annually. Beyond cultural adventures is the great outdoors. Numerous rivers offer great watersports; the Alps are famous for winter activities; forested mountain ranges are criss-crossed by bike routes and hiking trails galore. This guide visits all the best castles (including Neuschwanstein, home of Mad King Ludwig), the museums, churches and historic sites, with practical travel advice and tips that only a local could give. Color thoughout.

Tourism Woes Threaten Retail

THE LAST THING beleaguered high-end U.S. retailers need right now is for another big chunk of their customer base to go AWOL. U.S. shoppers pulled back from luxury purchases in the wake of the Great Recession, leading stores to become more dependent on Chinese, Brazilian, and European tourists to pick up the slack. Now they’re caught in a geopolitical pickle. More international visitors are cutting back on trips to the U.S. because of the perception that the country is becoming inhospitable to foreigners, the travel ban on citizens from six countries, and global headlines about hassles at cus

Where Are All the Tourists?

Henry Goldman and David Biller Foreign tourists may be showing their displeasure with President Trump by planning to take their holiday dollars elsewhere. According to Tourism Economics of Wayne, Pa., the U.S. can expect 4.3 million fewer visitors from abroad in 2017 from a year earlier because of anger and anxiety triggered by Trump, especially over his original ban of travelers from mostly Muslim countries. That translates into the loss of 62,000 jobs and $7.4 billion in revenue, says Tourism Economics, which analyzes data to predict and measure travel activity for clients in government and

A Blow to the Soul

Donald Trump has a heart full of fear. The world terrifies him. It’s not just the terror threat he overstates or his overt dread of facts, science, or democratic processes. No, Trump also apparently fears schoolchildren in sunny American suburbs—immigrants and refugees often left with nothing but the scars of war. We know this because he has prioritized turning the might of the most powerful government in the world against these innocents. Rather than addressing the threats posed by an ill-intentioned Russian government or following up on his tough talk about a rising China, the new president
