Germany

Since unification, Germany has steadily caught the attention of travellers across the globe. With a now firm reputation as a safe and stable nation, increasing numbers of visitors are experiencing its special convergence of modern and medieval, interspersed with some of Europe’s most picturesque landscapes. Well-kept towns and villages throughout the countryside each have their own unique character, while telling the broader story of German history through their art and architecture. Larger cities like Munich, Cologne and Berlin are hotbeds of innovation and contemporary art and design. German food has long had the reputation of being wholesome and delicious, from bread to beer, to lesser known local delights. The diverse range of dramatic landscapes is much-enjoyed by locals, and often pleasantly surprises visitors. Thick forests, large lakes, the dune-fringed northern coasts and the mighty Alps add hearty character to a country full of inspiration and beauty.
