6 Things to Do Between Munich and Monaco

Where to eat, sleep and drink along one of Europe's most beautiful drives.

Monaco

01 Head down a dark passage at Munich’s Bayerischer Hof Hotel to Falk’s Bar, a fantasia of a bar with white wedding-cake-frosting walls illuminated in violet (or any other colour favoured by the bartender), and order the Elderflower Royal – a mix of champagne, elderflower liqueur and soda. (bayerischerhof.de)

02 Founded in 1812 and only getting more atmospheric, the Augustiner Keller in Munich has stag antlers on its walls and tall steins of house-brewed lager to wash down refined schnitzels and hearty sausages. (augustinerkeller.de)

03 Arrive after dark at Austria’s Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol so that you can wake to a reveal of majestic, snow-capped mountains. (interalpen.com)

04 The highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, the Stelvio Pass straddles the Swiss-Italian border at 2,757 metres. The road over it is riddled with hairpin turns, making for one of the most exhilarating – or challenging, depending on who you are – drives in the world.

05 Cap your pasta dinner at Strainer Ristorante with pine-nut ­gelato from any of Portofino’s waterfront gelaterias while watching fishing skiffs ply the picturesque harbour. (Molo Umberto 1°, 19, Portofino)

06 Formula 1 fans will love the Fairmont Monte Carlo (pictured, foreground) for its location, right on a storied curve of the annual Monaco Grand Prix. (fairmont.com/monte-carlo)
