A region of rich, softly rolling hills, it is drained by several rivers notably the Main, Danube, Isar, and Inn and is bounded by mountain ranges especially the Bavarian Alps and the Bohemian Forest.

Forestry and agriculture account for about 10% of the state's economic output; wheat, barley, sugar beets, and dairy goods are the leading products. Since World War II, Bavaria has had the highest rate of industrial growth in Germany.

Industry produces more than half of the state's gross output and is centred in Munich, Nuremberg, Augsburg, Hof, Ingolstadt, Erlangen, and Schweinfurt. Leading industries are electronics, computers, machinery, chemicals, automobiles, clothing, and foodstuffs. Bavarian beer is world famous. Toys and musical instruments are made by artisans. Salt, graphite, iron ore, and lignite are the chief mineral resources.

The scenic beauties and the picturesque local customs and costumes of the Bavarian Alps attract many tourists. Among the resorts are Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Berchtesgaden, and the spas Bad Kissingen and Bad Reichenhall.

Bayreuth is a cultural centre, and Augsburg, Nuremberg, Bamberg, and Wuerzburg are historic and artistic centres. There are universities at Munich, Regensburg, Wuerzburg, and Erlangen-Nuremberg.

The borders of Bavaria have varied considerably in its history. The region was inhabited by Celts when Drusus conquered it (15 B.C.) for Rome. The Baiuoarii invaded it (6th cent. A.D.) and set up the duchy to which they gave their name. It was one of the five basic or stem duchies of medieval Germany.
