Elegant, charming, steeped in authentic, hardcore history yet
equally blessed with picture-postcard small towns, robust harvest festivals, a
wealth of art and culture and the lasting joy of large expanses of forest, enchanting
castles and fine wine and beer. And with Germany's reunification in 1990 - the
beginning of yet another chapter in Germany's multifarious history - the visitor

If activity is what you are after, you'd be hard pressed to
find a better region than Munich. Don't miss out a
trip to the Deutsches Museum, the world's largest science
and technology expo, which has dozens of hands-on activities
and absorbing demonstrations of human enterprise: from mining
to star gazing. The Englischer Garten is one of the largest
city parks in Europe. Also within reach of Munich are the
Bavarian Alps and the picture postcard villages of Rothenburg
ob der Tauberin western. As Munich is a major transport terminal
there’ll be no short means of getting about.
Whilst Frankfurt is without doubt the financial and
geographical centre of western Germany (producing the bulk
of Germany's wealth) over 10% of the city's taxes are committed
to culture. In Frankfurt you’ll find the The Städel Museum
with its world-class collection of works by artists from the
Renaissance to the 20th century. The Museum of Modern Art
also boasts a breathtaking collection. Frankfurt's music scene
is vigorous and dynamic and the jazz is of especially high
Berlin is traditionally the heart of Germany and a
visit here would not be complete without a tiely stroll from
Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate along Unter den Linden.
The Kulturforum nearby is a cluster of museums and concert
halls on the south-eastern side of Tiergarten that can literally
take days to explore.
Food & Wine
Lets face it, Germans are enthusiastic when it comes to beer
and making merry. The Winter Carnival (Fasching) season occurs
throughout Germany, with big cities such as Cologne (Köln),
Munich and Mainz erupting into commotion just before Ash Wednesday.
And of course mention must be made of Oktoberfest, Munich's
annual lager frenzy although every little village has at least
one wine festival per year too, with the most famous being
the Rhine in Flames series of festivals, when water, lighting
and fireworks provide a miraculous and combined spectacle.
Whilst the Dachau concentration camp lying north-west of provides
something of a solemn trip, Lübeck in Germany's northernmost
state, Schleswig-Holstein, is alternatively a magnificent
medieval town that's earned its place on UNESCO's World Heritage
list. Although it's accessible from Hamburg, Lübeck is off
the main tourist trails and can be a quiet alternative to
the more extravagant attractions of the south.
