You know most of the things they say about Germany: good beer in Bavaria, big parties in Berlin, the beautiful scenery of the Rhine valley, cuckoo clocks in the Black Forest. The good news: it’s all true. The better news: there is so much more you can discover and enjoy in Germany. Berlin is a good example for that: see the Reichstag, the German parliament, with its glass dome symbolizing a transparent style in politics. Visit famous landmarks like the Brandenburger Tor or the palace of Sans-Souci in nearby Potsdam, where Frederic the Great of Prussia escaped to from noisy Berlin. On the Museum Island are some of the most famous artifacts of human history, like the gates of Babylon or the world famous bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti. The last fragments of the Berlin Wall have been preserved as a warning to future generations, you can take a tour to learn its history. Berlin is in East Germany and quite close to the German coastline of the Baltic Sea. Beautiful towns like Stralsund, Rostock or Lübeck are waiting to be discovered there. Germany’s “door to the world” Hamburg with its famous St.Pauli amusement quarter, the giant harbour and the biggest fish market of Germany is a bit further to the west. The other coast of Germany, at the North Sea, invites you to explore beautiful Friesland and the little islands off the German coast.
If you want to see one of the biggest street parties in Germany, throw yourself into the carnival of Cologne. More than a million costumed locals go wild in the street. It is partying basically from Thursday, the women’s carnival (“Weiberfastnacht”), to Tuesday, with the big “Rose Monday” parade of floats, marching bands and dancing girl battalions taking over the street as the high point. At any other time of the year, visit the famous cathedral of Cologne, the biggest gothic cathedral in Germany. From here, take the boat upriver and be stunned by the romantic Rhine valley. Starting from Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and William Turner, this part of the river has been famous as a tourist attraction in Britain for over 200 years. If you have the time, get off the boat in Koblenz for a day or two and explore the Mosel Valley. It is even more rugged, castle studded and beautiful than the bigger Rhine Valley, with world famous vineyards on its steep flanks. Be sure to visit the old roman town of Trier, with its famous roman city gate Porta Nigra.
Between Koblenz and Mainz is the most beautiful part of the Rhine Valley with the mythical Loreley rock as a highlight. If you go to nearby Frankfurt, take a day to see the proud Cities historic heart beyond the towering skyscrapers of the banks. If you go from here to Würzburg in northern Bavaria, you can go down the Romantic Road through Bavaria. You see lots of quaint medieval towns on the way and the famous Neuschwanstein Castle of “Mad” King Ludwig II of Bavaria as a highlight and ending. From here, Munich is near, capital of Bavaria and host of the Oktoberfest (that takes place mostly in September). Munich itself is a beautiful city with its famous town hall on Marienplatz, the Englischer Garten, a big park in the middle of the town. There are world renowned museums, theaters and opera houses for the culturally inclined. If it is around Christmas time, you shouldn’t miss the famous Christmas Market in Nuremberg in northern Bavaria, a beautiful medieval city that is worth a visit on any time of the year.
The many different sights of Germany are not yet covered even by this extended tour. Lots of beautiful cities like Leipzig, Aachen and Dresden want to be visited. Landscapes like the lakes of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Harz Mountains, the Black Forest or the chalk cliffs of the island Rügen are still on the to-see list. You will have every reason to book your Lufthansa flight to Germany again and again.
