Top Destinations In Germany



Berlin is in the north-east of Germany. The history of the city can be traced back to the twelfth century. The devastation of World War II resulted in much of Berlin's architecture being badly damaged or destroyed. The city was subsequently divided by a wall separating East and West Germany, which was finally demolished in 1989. Berlin has become a fascinating holiday destination in recent years. It has a wealth of museums, a vibrant nightlife, high-quality restaurants and regular festivals celebrating all genres of music. There are many attractive parks for relaxation. Outdoor activities include golf, cycling and skateboarding.



Frankfurt was founded on the River Main more than 2,000 years ago. For centuries, it operated as an independent city state before being absorbed into Prussia. Today's city is famous for its individualism. As the financial hub of Germany, it has developed a skyline worthy of Manhattan. The Commerzbank Tower is the tallest structure, standing at 850 feet (259 metres). By contrast, the southern half of the city includes the Frankfurter Stadtwald, an ancient forest covering 48 square kilometres. It features foxes and wild boar, lakes and hiking trails. Frankfurt also includes historic buildings and museums.

Top Things to Do in Germany

Berlin has many landmarks including the neoclassical Brandenburg Gate, which was built in 1791. Museum Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It consists of many museums where important works of art and ancient collections are on display. The Berlin Cathedral was constructed in 1893 and features a large domed roof. It was partly destroyed in WWII, but the cathedral's interior has recently been restored.

Frankfurt has painstakingly recreated much of its Old Town including a series of buildings around the town square known as the Romerberg. Their Medieval, timbered facades provide the perfect setting for the famous, annual Christmas Market. The restored home of the nineteenth-century writer, Goethe, is now a museum. Outdoor pursuits such as cycling are popular as the city has many green spaces and parks.

Munich celebrates many German traditions such as the Karneval. It involves costumes and parades where public figures such as politicians are the targets of humour and satire. The most famous festival is the Oktoberfest, which began in 1810. A large funfair, brass bands and local, speciality beers provide entertainment that lasts for two weeks. A popular excursion is to Neuschwanstein Castle, King Ludwig's fairytale palace in the mountains.
