Say Guten Tag to Germany!
Although it may not be at the top of your bucket list, Germany is a country that’s easy to fall in love with.
From the cosmopolitan ‘center of the world’ vibe of Berlin — a city that can be anything you want it to be — to the beer halls of Bavaria, Germany has something for every type of traveller: cultural and foodie travellers will love the museums, wine regions, and carefully built tourism routes; outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of hiking, lakes and nature to explore; and history buffs will find Germany’s ancient castles and recent stories equally compelling.
Every time we go to Germany, we love it, and we’re hoping to spend far more time in the country over the coming years. We hope we can convince you to do the same!
