Are you visiting the beautiful city of Munich in Germany? There are so many incredible things to see and do in Munich. But you should also think about hiring a car from hiring a car from Munich Airport and visiting attractions outside the city.

Here's our list of the top five things to see during a short road trip from Munich.

Neuschwanstein Castle (pictured)

This fairy-tale like castle on a Bavarian mountaintop was built by the famous King Ludwig II. Although incomplete, the architecture is stunning and even went on to castles you see in Disney movies. To get the best view of the 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace, make sure you walk to Marienbruck (Mary's Bridge). You'll just above the castle. To avoid the crowd taking photos, continue after the bridge and hike a little higher up the hill. You'll have a postcard view all to yourself. you’re in town. Also hire a row boat on the lake in town for another romantic and picturesque experience. Where to stay: Camping Brunnen

Lake Eibsee

This is another gem in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen region. Eibsee is a mirror alpine lake with emerald green water. Germans and tourists alike agree is one of foothills of the majestic Mount Zugspitze, and unanimously agreed to be one of the most stunning lakes in Germany. It's a popular spot for swimming, boating and scenic hikes in summer, while you can go skiing in winter. While visiting the area, you should visit the beautiful 19th Century royal palace, Linderhoff, nearby at Ettal. Where to stay: Camping Resort Zugspitze, Alpen-Caravanpark Tennsee

Triberg is famous for Germany's highest waterfalls, which drop 163 metres over seven cascades. In the town centre you could spend hours shopping for the Black Forest's famous cuckoo clocks, woodcarvings and other souvenirs.
