There are several attractive Bavarian-style restaurants in the Altstadt and Neustadt, most of them with beer gardens. Although Landshut brews a fine beer, look for a Gaststätte offering a Weihenstephaner, from the world's oldest brewery, in Freising. Helles (light) is the most popular beer variety.

Hotel Schloss Berg
The entrance to this inviting hotel is on the lively Hohenzollernstrasse, but once you pass through what looks rather like a garage opening, you'll find yourself in a quiet courtyard. Rooms are a good size and the large windows make them light and airy. Some rooms have a balcony overlooking the courtyard. Request a room not facing the street and ask about weekend rates. Free Wi-Fi throughout the property.
Hotel Schloss Berg
King Ludwig II spent his final days in the small castle of Berg, from which this comfortable hotel gets its name. It's on the edge of the castle park where Ludwig liked to walk and a stone's throw from where he drowned. The century-old main hotel building is on the lakeside, and a modern annex overlooks the lake from the woods—in either, make sure you get a room facing the lake. All rooms are spacious and elegantly furnished. The restaurant ($$) and waterside beer garden are favorite haunts of locals and weekenders. Schloss Berg is in the village of Berg, along the lake near Starnberg. From Munich, head toward Starnberg on the autobahn, but turn toward Berg at the end of the off ramp.
