Why Nadja’s Germany?

We’re all living in a world that brings us too many choices. Some would say that it’s a good thing – but it also means making a decision can be a challenge and often very time-consuming. I’d like to at least relieve you of some of the stress when it comes to holiday planning. So, I have created this website to guide you through the maze of options out there and to offer useful information about Germany and its hidden treasures.

Welcome to Nadja’s Germany


What comes to mind when you think of Germany? Of course, we all know that the Germans make great beer and sausages and are super-efficient (we won’t mention football). But Germany really does have so much more to offer than just sausages and efficiency! It’s also a great holiday destination that can be enjoyed any time of the year. Summer is particularly good as there is so much going on. Music, wine and beer festivals, as well as other events, take place across the country every summer. Spring and Autumn are the perfect seasons to enjoy a river cruise, walking, hiking or cycling. German cities, with their fabulous food, culture and nightlife, are fantastic places to visit all-year-round.

Christmas markets in Germany

I’ve personally been to a great number of Christmas markets in my life and I still love them! One of my favourite markets is Düsseldorf, and whenever I’m there visiting friends and family for Christmas, I make it a priority to go. I’ve also been to the Christmas market in Nuremberg, called Christkindlesmarkt. The market has been ranked 86 out of 100 most popular sights in Germany. Located in the historic town square of Hauptmarkt, it sets the perfect scene for a traditional market.

Do you find there are never enough hours in your day?

It seems like our modern world is running faster and we want to experience so much. We don’t want to miss out on anything and when we book something it should always be something very special.
We try to squeeze as much in a day as possible: When we go home from work by train, we try to organise our lives on our smartphones, quickly booking the spinning class in the gym, checking the email inbox, looking up a recipe for tonight’s dinner and book the shopping – hoping we can still get the slot, which suits our schedule, catching up with a friend via WhatsApp, ordering a birthday present… This list could go on and on…

Holiday planning is time consuming!

When we’re thinking about planning our holiday we are looking for a great experience as this is the most precious time of the year. No matter what kind of holiday and what budget!
Maybe we are organised and created a bucket list with destinations we would really like to go or we just get inspired by family and friends or browsing the travel websites looking for the dream place to go, certainly matching our budget. If we know already where we’d like to go, the first steps of research start: Checking for flights if we go by plane, accommodation if we don’t choose a campervan or caravan, things to do and even maybe a plan B in case the weather isn’t great for the things we’ve originally planned. Planning all this is very time consuming!

Holiday is about excitement

Going on holiday means also spending money. Depending on your budget it could create a quite big dent in your bank account and the worst thing is to regret this investment. It’s an investment maybe in quality time with the family, as a couple or with friends and you don’t want to be disappointed about the outcome.
Another aspect is that the time before starting your trip should be an exciting time too. I personally think the best time is the build-up and how exciting is that feeling once suitcases are packed and we arrive at the airport! Ready for a glass of champagne? I always feel like that!!!:-)

My values


I like the quote from Oprah Winfrey, which describes my passion perfectly: “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing what excites you.”


In our modern world there are too many untrustworthy people. I can 100% sign Albert Einstein’s view “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important matters.”


In German we’ve got the saying that Lies have short legs, meaning you can’t get far when you lie. I agree with Michelle Obama who said once “We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters…that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules…and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.”


One of my favourite pop songs is: “I am who I am!” And I don’t change when I publish something. I like to be ME! Clergyman Charles R. Swindoll describes it like that: “I know of nothing more valuable, when it comes to the all-important virtue of authenticity, than simply being who you are.”


In those difficult times we live in at the moment it becomes even more important to be human, to treat others respectfully and stick together to focus on things that really matter. Dalai Lama put it once in nice words:  “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.”
