This week's "Travel Tip" could apply anywhere there are variations in the weather (Scotland comes to mind as experiencing all four seasons in one day), and it definitely applies in Bavaria: dress in layers!
You could easily wake up in Munich in the morning and it's chilly, but by midday, it's downright hot outside, only to get cold again in the evening. It's unrealistic to think you'll keep going back to your hotel to change, so dress in layers. This applies even more if you take a day trip to the Zugspitze. We were at the base of the mountain and it was shorts weather. We got to the top and I was shivering! Laura was better prepared and didn't feel the cold as much as I did. The silver lining to this black cloud was that I had an excuse to buy more hot bratwurst and Glühwein! As if I really needed an excuse.
Bonus Tip: Glühwein, for the uninitiated out there, is hot, spiced, red wine that Germans drink when the temperature drops but they still want to be outside, like at their wünderbar Christmas Markets!
