Germany is a large, diverse country with good public transport, hearty food and lots of kultur and hiking.
Soaring Alps, fairytale castles and romantic towns, windswept beaches and magical forests – there’s a lot to explore in Germany.
Along the southern border of Germany, shared with Austria, peaks rise up to almost 3000 metres. Lower down, beautiful lakes nestled between ridges and can be easily reached on day trips from Munich.
The Romantic Road is a tourist route from Wurzburg to Neuschwanstein Castle, linking medieval towns and historic palaces and castles of Ludwig II, the Fairytale King.
Everywhere you go in Germany there are signed hiking routes laid out in the countryside. In the south, these turn into cross-countryside ski routes when winter arrives.
