Mad King Ludwig would perhaps scoff at the idea of tackling his once beloved kingdom in just 1 day -- or even 2 or 3 days. But what did he know, really?

If that is all the time you have, we want to help you make the most of it by providing a ready-made itinerary that allows you to have a complete, unforgettable trip.

Of course, there is always a hidden section of Munich, or a slice of the Bavarian Alps, that awaits your discovery on your own as you seek out its hidden treasures, but that can wait for another day and another trip.

You can make the most of your short time by fortifying yourself with an old-fashioned Bavarian breakfast of Weisswurst (those little finger-size white sausages). Head for Donisl, which opens at 9am. A true Münchner downs these sausages with a mug of beer.
