Germany is one of our closest neighbours and a huge country offering diverse urban and natural destinations - is definitely one to consider on your next holiday to Europe. From the incredible Black Forest, to fairy tale castles in the mountains, and the cool capital of Berlin, Germany offers something for everyone. Brightsun Travel has put together a range of cheap holidays to Germany to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. Let’s start in Germany’s Black Forest, where you can explore dark evergreen landscapes stretching all the way to the French and Swiss borders. The Black Forest is a mountainous region with the country’s highest waterfalls, plus incredible National Parks and nature reserves where you can go on hiking and cycling adventures into Germany’s atmospheric wilderness. Then there’s the Rhine Valley, with vineyards and dramatic hillside villages, plus monasteries and castles dating back centuries.
Then it’s on to Germany’s urban scene. Munich in Bavaria is a place in south Germany where you will find stunning art galleries and museums, as well as traditional beer halls and contemporary cafes. In the summer, the city attracts visitors from around the world for its annual Oktoberfest beer festival. Or for UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany, you could head to Trier, Germany’s oldest city, which offers a range of architectural treasures to discover. In Hamburg, you could explore World Heritage attractions and a beautiful harbour, whilst in Cologne you can admire some incredible cathedrals. Then there’s the achingly cool capital of Berlin where you can explore Germany’s history within its many museums and landmarks, including outdoor memorials containing original segments of the Berlin Wall. In Berlin, you can also soak up Germany’s contemporary arts scene, in its many galleries, or relax in one of the largest urban parks in the world, the Tiergarten. Berlin also has a maze of canals and waterways lined with cafes and markets, like the Turkish Market that brings together textiles and foods from around the world.
