From Munich, go straight to the village of Rothenburg Ob der Tauber.  It is like something you picture as the perfect Bavarian city.  I also really enjoyed our time spent in Nuremberg.  The old city slopes down towards the river, then back up again-all within the old walls that surround it.  I was pleasantly surprised by it!  And if it is Christmas time, they have the most famous Christmas market.We also stopped for a brief rest while driving in Ulm-the area around the cathedral (which is one of the largest in the world) was really beautiful.  Definitely worth a day trip.

And I'll second all the information about Neuschwanstein Castle.  I believe the town situated closest to the castle, Fussen, is highly underrated.  I loved it!  Cobblestone streets, beautiful setting at the base of the Alps over looking the plains.  Really fun!

Are you driving? Dachau Concentration Camp would be the closest and the King Ludwig trifecta of  Linderhof PalaceNeuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau are also great options. If you're heading south, the Pilgrimage Church of Wies is beautiful to see. If you're looking for views of the alps, head south to the Zugspitze or the The Eagle's Nest on a clear day.

If you're into cars, the Audi Museum is not far to the north or you can head to Stuttgart for the Mercedes-Benz Museum or Porsche MuseumRothenburg Ob der Tauber is one of my favorite German cities and less than a 3 hour drive-definitely a popular spot for daytrippers.

Munich is in one of the nicest parts of Germany: Bavaria. The countryside surrounding Munich is very picturesque. To the west is the Black Forest Will you be driving? If not I suggest taking a train to Friedrichshafen Bodensee and crossing Lake Constance to the capital of the lake: Konstanz which is on the Swiss border. The lake is really beautiful and there are lots of lovely little towns to see, like Lindau and MeersburgKonstanz

You've got some great answers already! In addition, I would add Bamberg.  It's Germany's largest UNESCO World Heritage Site and looks like something straight out of a story book!

We did Dachau Concentration Camp and Fussen/Neuschwanstein Castle which were great! You could even do Nuremberg if you wanted. If you're travelling by train it's a good deal because you can get a Bayern pass for only 26 Euro which gets you all day travel around Bavaria!
