Modern Bavaria also includes parts of the historical regions of Franconia and Swabia. Neighbouring states within Germany are Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Thuringia and Saxony. International borders are shared with Austria and the Czech Republic. The Bavarian Alps form the border with Austria, and within the range is the highest peak in Germany, the Zugspitze. Switzerland can be reached directly by crossing Lake Constance. Two major rivers flow through the state, the Danube (Donau) and the Main.
Weisswurst (GermanWeißwurst (help·info), literally white sausage) is a traditional Bavariansausage made from very finely minced veal and fresh porkbacon. It is usually flavoured with parsley, also known as beiderl, lemon, mace, onions, ginger and cardamom, though there are some variations. The mixture is then stuffed into fresh, clean pork casings and separated into individual sausages about ten to twelve centimeters in length and about two centimeters in thickness.

His phenomenal creative energy when working were in violent contrast with a wild, self-destructive libertinism that earned him a reputation as the enfant terrible of the New German Cinema, as well as being its central figure. He had tortured personal relationships with the actors and technicians around him who formed a surrogate family. However, his pictures demonstrate his deep sensitivity to social outsiders and his hatred of institutionalized violence. He ruthlessly attacked both German bourgeois society and the larger limitations of humanity.
