About Germany

Germany is a Western European country best known for its vibrant culture and expansive history. It is the second-most populous country in Europe and features a variety of landscapes from forests and mountain ranges to rivers and beaches. There are many large cities within Germany, each offering its own unique experiences and specialties. 

Weather and Best Season to Visit

The best weather in Germany occurs during the summer months when temperatures are warm and the days are longer. This also happens to be the busiest time for tourists to visit, therefore prices are higher and wait times for attractions can be long. To avoid busy crowds consider travelling to Germany during the Spring and Fall. During these seasons the weather is still nice, but crowds are smaller and accommodation prices are lower. 

Things to Do

You can’t visit Germany without enjoying a beer and pretzel at one of the many beer halls throughout the country. Beer and pretzels are a big part of German culture and make for a tasty snack. There are also many delicacies that should be tried while in the country like bratwurst (Grilled Sausage) and Kartoffelkloesse (Potato Dumplings). These foods can easily be found in most restaurants that serve local food. History buffs, especially those with an interest in war history, will be astonished by the number of monuments and museums in Germany. For example, there are more than 6,200 museums in the country that cover every topic you could think of. Many museums in the larger German cities are within walking distance of each other therefore you can visit a few within the same day. Germany makes for a great destination to become educated on European history and to develop a deeper understanding of the effects of the second world war. 

One of the great things about visiting Germany is that despite there being several large cities, it is easy to escape to nature within a few hours by train. Meaning you can enjoy the city life for a few days then retreat to the forest to hike or simply to relax. During certain times of the year, Germany hosts some really fun events like music festivals and Christmas markets. It is also home to the world-famous Oktoberfest which occurs annually in the city of Munich. Oktoberfest is the largest folk festival in the world and more than 6 million people from across the globe travel to participate in it.
