Germany may be known for its social efficiency and world-class museums, but most travelers visit the country for its spectacular scenery and culture.
Deutschland is full of idyllic half-timbered villages where you can enjoy apfelstrudel at a Hamburg bakery, sip a glass of Mosel Riesling, clink frothy steins in a Bavarian brauhaus, and warm up with a glass of glühwein at a German Christmas market.
Travel is easy here, as most Germans speak English. Whether you take a Rhine River cruise or travel by train, you’ll see Germany’s 2000-year history along the castle-lined Rhine River valley, in the bricks of Rothenburg’s medieval walls, and in the Protestant footsteps of Martin Luther.
Take time to reflect on the chaotic events of the 20th Century in Nuremberg, and marvel at the country’s high-tech future in Cologne and Berlin.
