Travel to Germany

Indulge in the smorgasbord of attraction and intricacy that Germany has on offer, from rugged rivers and iconic eats to coastal scenery and festivities - everything oozing with history.

 

The home of Oktoberfest, the world’s best reason to drink beer, is a 2 week festival held in Munch that’s all about consuming large amounts of beer in traditional steins whilst clothed in dirndls and lederhosen. It’s one experience not to be missed!

 

Apart from German beer and pretzels, Germany’s cities are known for their unique nightlife scene that operates ‘round the clock.

 

But all partying aside, this country has a rich history with picturesque mediaeval towns, grand castles in the Rhine Valley, famous street art (you can even add your own to the Berlin Wall), and then there are The German Alps that offer soul-awakening beauty. 

 

Whether you’re after beer gardens or old world charm, a trip to Europe wouldn’t be complete without exploring this diverse country filled with cultural delights and breathtaking spectacles.
