Bayern T-Shirt - Bayern, more generally known as Bavaria, is a German state along the southeastern border with Austria. The capital is Munich (or München). It is perhaps best known as the Alpine home of Mad King Ludwig's famous fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein and BMW. For centuries the Kingdom of Bavaria was ruled by the monarchy, and even after King Ludwig II signed over control of the military in 1918 the royal family didn't renounce their throne. The lovely lady on this stamp seems to signify harvest and abundance. Perhaps she's on her way to celebrate Oktoberfest. You'll love this beautiful Bayern t-shirt.
