From Augsburg to Munich: Bertolt Brecht allegedly said that "the nicest thing about Augsburg is the train to Munich." Of course, that's not true at all. Augsburg always merits a visit. Nevertheless, the railway journey to Munich is also extremely picturesque. It's also the oldest long-distance railway line in Bavaria. When the very first train departed from Augsburg station in 1840, where do you think it was headed? To the Oktoberfest, of course.
