Whether you're looking to ski in the Bavarian Alps, walk in the Black Forest or cruise down the Rhine past fairy-tale castles, Germany has dozens of great destinations to suit every taste. Berlin is unmissable with its exciting fusion of old and new and a wealth of world-class cultural attractions. But Germany also offers many other great cities such as Cologne, Munich, Lubeck and Heidelberg.
Roam cobbled streets in pretty northern towns. Explore medieval cathedrals and Baroque palaces. Savour the authentic German beer-hall experience, or some of Europe's best nightclubbing in Berlin. Relax at a traditional spa. Enjoy watersports. Or sample fine German wines. It's all waiting for you.
Things to see and do
Germany is made up of a wide variety in landscapes, any one of which would be a great destination. Put on some boots and trek through stunning Alpine scenery around Lake Konigsee with beautiful valleys, waterfalls and gorges. Tour the 600km Marchenstrasse, one of Germany's most popular tourist trails dubbed the Fairy Tale Route because many of the hamlets, towns and cities on it are associated with the Brothers Grimm. Take to the water and follow the course of the River Rhine.
Head to the Baltic Islands for white sandy beaches backed by pine forests and the chance to enjoy watersports such as sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing. Take the family to attractions such as Miniature World, the largest model railway in the world in Hamburg, Berlin Zoo, or Movie Park Germany, a Bottrop theme park with real movie studios. Explore Bavarian Baroque at places like the 700-year-old town of Fuessen or the royal palaces of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.
Arts and culture
Germany is a treasure trove of major art galleries and museums in Berlin but also many other major cities. Don't miss the Pergamon Museum in Berlin's museum quarter which has stunning Greek and Roman buildings such as the Pergamon Altar and gates from the ancient city of Babylon.
See great classical impressionist and expressionist art at the Old National Gallery, one of many galleries in Berlin. See a concert by the mighty Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle. Or see a live band in a city that was home to the likes of Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed – there is a city tour that explore some of the places in Berlin associated with their time here.
Berlin is a very lively, young city. For a swish start to your evening, try the Wurgeengel, an Art Deco-style bar or take in a sunset with a cold beer at the Eastern Comfort Hostelboat. And when it's time to hit the dancefloor go to Bar 25 on the River Spree, hedonistic Berghain or Watergate.
