A compelling blend of dynamic cities, gorgeous scenery and sights straight out of a Brothers Grimm fairytale, Germany has never been a more rewarding travel destination. Whether you want to tour the vineyards of the Rhine or Mosel, discover Berlin’s brilliant club culture, or hike your way through the Barvarian Alps, use our map of Germany to explore one of Europe’s most fascinating countries.
The Romantic Road in southern Germany is an excellent way to tour the half-timbered houses of medieval towns and fantasy castles of the region. Germany is well-known for its beer, and rightly so; you’ll find atmospheric beer halls in Munich, and of course the legendary Oktoberfest is held here yearly. For a more relaxing stay, wallow in Baden-Baden’s luxurious spas, hang out in Hamburg’s city beach bars or wander around the remarkable museums and historic sights of Berlin.
