Germany overview

Germany Travel Guide
From the towering Alps in the South and the rising hills of central Germany to the shores of the Baltic and North Sea, the country famous for ‘Oktoberfest’ is packed with Europe’s nicest old towns, Gothic churches and medieval houses. Thanks to the different princedoms and monarchies that earlier ruled Germany, the country did not unite until the 20th century. This explains how Germany has not one but several major cities, with each having its own unique identity formed by its past and the surrounding regions. In Germany, tourists must expect to see diverse architectural styles and arts, and to experience a lifestyle that is very alien to them. German customs and traditions are evidently reflected everywhere – in the arts, in the clubs and restaurants, and even in the way locals live. Moreover, Germany's cities have endless of pleasant surprises for those who take pleasure in good food and drinks.
