Best Time to Book a Flight to Bavaria

Though countries around the world hold their own celebrations, Oktoberfest is best celebrated in Bavaria. As a tradition started in Bavaria in the 1800s, you'll find all the most authentic and energetic festivities in Bavarian cities. The celebrations revolve primarily around German beer but there are family-friendly activities as well. Oktoberfest starts at the end of September and runs for about two weeks.

Though the weather is usually nice for Oktoberfest, temperatures drop shortly afterward. December and January are the coldest months of the year in Bavaria. The spring and fall months are generally comfortable, with temperatures ranging from cool to warm. If you choose to visit in the summer, you will be greeted with warm to hot temperatures with high humidity.

Airport and Airline Options in Bavaria

The main gateway into Bavaria is located in Munich, the state's capital. Munich Airport (MUC) is not only the busiest airport in the state but also the second-busiest in the entire country. The airport is made up of two passenger terminals and is a hub for Condor, Lufthansa, and Air Dolomiti. The airport is also served by dozens of other airlines, including American Airlines, British Airways, and Eurowings.

Flying from Canada to Munich Airport is quite simple as there as direct flights available. Via Lufthansa, you can leave from Toronto Pearson Airport (YYZ), Canada's largest airport or from Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Air Canada also offers direct flights to Munich from Toronto.

Nuremberg Airport (NUE), located about 5 km from Nuremberg, is the second-busiest international airport in the state. Ryanair and Germania are the airlines offering the most flight destinations. Though the airport is served by over 25 airlines, there are currently no direct flight paths from Canada to Nuremberg. Routes will include a stop in a major European city like Frankfurt, London, or Zurich.

The final commercial airport option in Bavaria is Memmingen Airport (FMM), a one-terminal airport located about 4 km from the small town of Memmingen. The terminal consists of two floors, with Schengen country flights on the ground floor and non-Schengen flights on the second floor. The airport is served by three airlines: Pobeda, Ryanair, and Wizz Air. These airlines fly to Memmingen from many large European cities like London, Dublin, and Stockholm.

What to See and Do in Bavaria

As the largest and busiest airport in the state and the only one with direct flights from Canada, you'll likely fly into Munich Airport. There's no shortage of popular tourist attractions in Munich, like the lovely English Garden. This scenic public park covers over 900 acres and contains a series of walking paths and bridges, bodies of water, various monuments, and plenty of flowers and trees. At the south end of the park, there's also a Japanese Teahouse where tourists can enjoy a traditional tea ceremony.

If you fly into Nuremberg Airport instead, be sure to stop by Kaiserburg Nurnberg (also known as Nuremberg Castle). Kaiserburg is a group of medieval buildings and towers with important religious and historical significance. In Memmingen, the Hermannsbau Museum is one of the top tourist attractions. The museum has many exhibits dedicated to the history and culture of the local community. There are also many beautiful art galleries to explore in Memmingen.
