Let Us Plan Your Travel to Germany

Germany’s landscapes are remarkably scenic, as if created with the brushstroke of an artist, from mysterious forests and romantic river valleys to vine-covered hills and even dramatic Alps. You’re sure to give your camera a good workout when it comes to natural wonders, but there are plenty of historic man-made wonders too, including charming towns with streets laid out long before Columbus sailed to America, while majestic castles soar over lovely half-timbered villages that look as if they were plucked from fairy tales where you can sip a stein while men in lederhosen play oompah music.

Magnificent cities await too, with all sorts of cultural attractions, from world-class museums and art galleries to lively nightlife for enjoying everything from alternative underground clubs and risqué cabaret. There’s plenty for architectural buffs too with baroque, Gothic, and Romanesque styles found throughout along with soaring, glass-fronted futuristic skyscrapers.

The country’s rich history, from the ancient to more recent past is sure to satisfy history enthusiasts, with Roman amphitheatres and medieval castles as well as sobering sites related to Hitler, the Holocaust, and the remnants of the Berlin Wall.

Germany is worth a visit for the food and drink alone, with its cuisine going well beyond the typical pretzels, schnitzel sausages, and strudel, with those massive mugs of foamy beer. While there are plenty of famous brews to sample, you’ll also discover lots of fine local wines, most notably the tasty Rieslings. Mosel Valley boasts a tranquil river lined with little wine-loving cobbled towns like Cochem.
