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. Germany is best visited when you have the time to spend several days or more exploring the different regions, with each area having its own unique culture.
