MANDARIN ORIENTAL, MUNICH, 3 NIGHTS

This snow-white neo-Renaissance town house near Maximilianstrasse and the Hofbräuhaus is straining to be the most luxe thing in Bavaria—and it may be succeeding. Wherever you look there's one more amenity than is necessary: marble bathrooms with Molton Brown goodies; heated floors, and towel racks; a butler to pack and unpack your bags; Wi-Fi and three phone lines; a bedsheet "menu" with silk quilts; and minibars that are free. Everyone gets fruit, newpapers, and shoe shines (a dying tradition). The smallest of the 72 rooms is around 330 square feet, and many junior suites have terraces. They're all in a subtle neutral palette primarily using light browns, with a Biedermeier-ish vibe. The rooftop pool, with bar, makes up for the lack of a spa, and there's a serious restaurant, Marks.

GOLDENER HIRSCH, SALZBURG, 3 NIGHTS Probably Salzburg's best-known high-end property, this 69-room mini-Schloss has been an inn since 1407.

Make sure you eat at one of the two excellent restaurants. The Goldener Hirsch, situated in the old stables, is Salzburg's toniest, especially at festival time, when it's the likeliest venue for spotting famous conductors and soloists.
