Destinations/europe / Germany

Germany is one of the most historic and culturally diverse countries in Europe! The stunning rural scenery and natural landscapes are contrasted by cities that combine both thousands of years of history with some of the most forward-thinking cultural scenes in the world. 

Germany’s urban centres are definitely some of the biggest draw cards for travellers! Berlin is a centre for creatives and artistic expression. Emerging from the shadow of its troubled past, Germany’s capital city is a dynamic world travel destination. The city addresses its turbulent history while embracing the future. Historic attractions including the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Reichstag Building are joined by contemporary art, cutting edge restaurants and vibrant nightlife. Munich is Germany’s second city and is also flourishing as a European hotspot. It hosts the annual Oktoberfest beer festival and offers plenty of world-class museums, galleries and architecture. 

Beyond the cityscapes, Germany has striking natural beauty to rival any of its neighbours! The stunning Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace that has appeared in many Hollywood movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. Winding its way from the Swiss border in the south to the border with the Netherlands in the north-east, is the Rhine Valley. This picturesque glacial alpine valley cuts between hillside castles and rolling vineyards and provides some of the country’s most dramatic landscapes!
