Historic cities, wonderful Bavarian villages and mile upon mile of forests, mountains and lakes: what’s not to like in Germany?
Berlin, the country’s capital, is one of the finest cities in the world and Germany’s most visited destination, offering a wonderful combination of history, culture, architecture and nightlife. Also popular for weekend city breaks, places such as Hamburg offer visitors elegant shops, fine hotels and cultural attractions including museums and parks.
To the south, where you can find the beauty stretching from the magical Black Forest to snow-capped Alps. Bavarian capital Munich is one of Germany’s most alluring cities, and host to the world-famous Oktoberfest, which draws beer-lovers from far and wide every year. If you’re more of a wine drinker then you will enjoy the beautiful Rhine Valley, which hosts wine festivals in the autumn, or relax in Europe’s biggest Spa at Erding.
A great country for outdoors enthusiasts, the geography of the land lends itself well to a number of sports, including hiking, cycling, swimming and skiing in the Bavarian Alps.
More About Germany…
Germany’s capital is best known for its long and turbulent history. From modest beginnings, Berlin has grown into a European powerhouse and since reunification in 1990 has developed into a dynamic and alluring city. As well as home to numerous cultural attractions, it is also one of the greenest cities in Europe: over 60% of the land is either a park or a river.
