Germany holidays

Who is Germany suitable for?
Destination Germany is one of Europe's largest countries and also its richest. With a reputation for engineering, technology and general fastidiousness, it can surprise visitors with the fantastic friendliness and warmth of its population as well as the incredible diversity of its landscapes, customs and architecture. It boasts some of the oldest and most beautiful cities on the continent as well as some of its most stunning scenery ranging from the Bavarian alps to the beautiful beaches of the Baltic coast; from the stunning mountain-scapes of the Black Forest to the historic vineyards of the Rhine Valley.

Despite the destructive turbulence of the twentieth century, which laid waste to many of Germany's most spectacular landmarks, Germany still boasts some of the most beautiful cities on the continent with Cologne, Dresden, Bremen, Munich and Nuremburg displaying rich medieval and baroque architecture and vibrant cultural scenes. Berlin is the country's political capital and has long had a reputation for having some of the best nightlife in Europe, whilst its economic capital is Frankfurt - a city where a futuristic financial centre rubs shoulders with an ancient and delightfully folky old town. There's something for everyone in Germany and enough stunning attractions to keep you coming back year after year.
