Why should you go?

Easy, the formula is Bx6=

Bavaria, my favorite state
Bamberg, my favorite city, cafes in Marktplatz
Beer, the best in Germany, home of the famed Oktoberfest and the oldest brewery in the world, Bräuhaus Freising in Freising, just north of München.
Brochen (and other breads), best in Germany, and each town has its own distict offerings from local bakeries.
Bratwurst, don't even bother looking elsewhere

But, we're supposed to be talking castle talk, so throw in Burgen (castles) - more than you could visit in a lifetime, even if you lived there.
