Germany Overview
GermanyGermany, the largest country in Central Europe, is also known to be one of the travel hotspots in the world. It is a federation of 16 states with each state having its own distinct and unique culture. Considered to be one of the most influential countries in Europe and a major economic power, Germany has always been known for its high-tech products and precision engineering. It is equally popular for its distinct history, natural beauty, exciting cities and local diversity.

It is true that the first mention of Germany conjures images of lederhosen clad folks and Oktoberfest, but there are a number of sights, attractions and experiences that also make the country worth your while. The country is huge. It is impossible to cover everything in a single trip. Therefore, it always makes sense to choose a region or a major city and start off your Germany tour from there.

During a trip to Germany, don’t miss out on its exciting old world palaces and castles, cathedrals and history-rich museums. Landmarks like the Neuschwanstein Castle (the inspiration for Disney’s Cinderella Castle), the Hohenzollern Castle and the Wartburg Castle are worth mentioning. The fact that Germany is home to more than 30 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Cologne and Aachen cathedrals, cannot be overlooked either.

Apart from its historic charm, the surrounding natural beauty also makes Germany very popular among travelers. The Black Forest Mountains, the Wadden Sea and the Harz Mountains are just some of the destinations worth checking out. The most popular outdoor activities include hiking, cycling, skiing, snowboarding and mountain climbing.

Those looking for some culture are likely to fall in love with the beautiful German festivals, countless concert halls, delightful jazz clubs and exciting art galleries located all over the country.

Traveling from one city to the other is quite easy while in Germany. The Deutsche Bahn provides visitors with excellent high-speed connections and driving is a pleasure as well. Intercity buses do exist, but the rail network is far more comfortable, easy to use and speedy when it comes to long distance travel.

The country is home to a number of cities that can interest travelers like no other. Berlin, the German capital, is famous for sites like the Berlin Wall and cosmopolitan delights like art galleries, clubs and restaurants. Bremen is an old town that is an ideal place for Hanseatic history lovers. Cologne was founded in the Roman era and offers visitors with amazing archaeological sites and Romanesque churches. Dusseldorf is believed to be the capital of fashion and it is equally famous for its scintillating nightlife. Frankfurt boasts of a skyline that can easily compete with the one offered by Manhattan while Munich is home to the world famous Oktoberfest.

Other destinations worth mentioning include Hamburg, Nuremberg, Harz, Middle Rhine Valley, Baltic Sea Coast, the Bavarian Alps and Lake Constance.

It is also believed to one of the fashion centers in the world and its stores are famous for revealing high-street trends and the latest in designer fashion.

Dusseldorf might pale in comparison to Koln’s skyline, but it isn’t without its own charm. It is one of the richest cities in the country and its people are famous for leading luxurious and extravagant lifestyles that showcase the economic success of Germany after World War II. Many might not know this, but almost 80% of the city was completely destroyed during WWII. However, this didn’t stop the city from rebuilding itself from the ground up and recreating its historic landmarks that it was once famous for.

Dusseldorf’s penchant for emerging as a world center can be seen all throughout history. It started off as a small fishing village, but managed to emerge as one of the leading metropolises in Germany. Its rise to glory after being destroyed during WWII is also there for all to see. Today, the city is full of steel-and-glass structures and within them, lie amazing designer boutiques which showcase the finest jewelry, clothes, furs and other consumer goods.

The Dusseldorf International Airport is the main gateway into the city. It is the third largest airport in Germany and it connects the city to about 175 destinations all over the world. It is also known to be one of the main hubs for Air Berlin.  Dusseldorf also offers its visitors with an extensive network of buses, trams and U-Bahn trains that travel all throughout the city. Most trips can be completed within €2, but some longer trips might cost as much as €3.80. Travelers can also rent taxis to visit any place in the city.

The city dazzles travelers with its wild nightlife, brilliant architecture and exciting art scene. It is an extremely modern city that has been built around the fashion, banking, telecommunications and advertising industries. The city might be extremely wealthy, but the locals are also known to be among the friendliest people in all of Germany.

The locals take their beer extremely seriously. Altbier, the native dark beer, is definitely worth trying while in the city. Altstadt, an area where most of the city’s nightlife share boundaries with its picturesque old town, is a major highlight in the city. Art lovers cannot miss out on the Kunst Palast Museum, a museum that hosts the finest art collections in Rhineland, and Konigsallee, the city’s popular shopping street, is home to all sorts of high-end stores and luxury brands. Other popular areas worth exploring include Burgplatz (Castle Square) and Schneider-Wibbel-Gasse (Tailor-Wibbel-Lane).
