Germany, as a country,
holds a prime position in Europe both metaphorically and literally.
A country that is able to combine a remarkable diversity, an
untamed nature and a youthful creativity to perfectly produce
everything that a traveller looks for in a destination: excitement,
entertainment and enthusiasm.
The German capital Berlin is an up-to-date, vibrant city where
almost anything goes! From stylish nightclubs to intriguing art
galleries and museums, Berlin has so much to offer. However, its
atmosphere contrasts with those towns of academic surrounding and
historic university cities, such as Heidelberg and Freiburg, which
convey an attitude of peacefulness and tranquillity. But don't
expect this in Berlin. It's energetic, playful vibe rubs off on you
and keeps you on your toes all day... and night!
Munich is the third largest city in Germany. Here, the old and
the new are blended beautifully together. The agricultural landscape and
lake-dotted forests surround Munich, the capital city of Bavaria,
with the German Alps behind. Munich juxtaposes a thoroughly
modern city with a traditional heart. Here you'll find the
most contemporary meeting facilities, hotels (and other venues
widely available) as well as an enormous selection of both renowned
gourmet restaurants and charming local offerings that capture
Munich's traditional flair. It is also home to some of the
world's largest and finest museums, including the Deutsches Museum
and the three 'Pinakotheks' ('old', 'new' and 'modern' art
museums). Golfers will be delighted by the 43 courses, all
within an hour's drive, and 'Fußball' fans travel from all over to
see popular teams play on some of Germany's best pitches,
especially the world famous FC Bayern.
Tourists also congregate in this city for the world famous
Oktoberfest, wanting to be included in the revelry alongside
Lederhosen-clad Bavarians, all enjoying vast quantities of beer and
Munich is definitely a place to visit
thanks to its strong cultural scene, richly endowed art
collections, romantic palaces and endless shopping opportunities.
It is also the home of BMW cars and centre of the German film
industry. Indeed, from balmy summers in the beer gardens to the
glittering Christmas markets during snowy winters, Munich is a
desirable destination for all.
