What’s great about traveling to Germany? It’s a beautiful country, but the weather sure isn’t. Once you finally get there it can be hard to make your trip worthwhile. You see, if you don’t have a plan, your travel in Germany will just be a bunch of museums and old churches. However, here are some of our additional recommendations:

  • View a football match in Munich: get into the energetic and frantic ambience of a Bundesliga match in the Allianz Arena. Enjoy the best of European footballers, crowd chants and the quality of a fantastic experience enjoying the wonderful game.
  • Visit the Hohenschwangau (Southwest Bavaria): The Schloss Neuschwanstein towers over the Bavarian woodlands like a storybook castle. Indeed, the Bavarian ‘schloss' was used as a model for the castle in Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty, which makes sense given that it is Germany's most photographed structure. The castle is magnificently crafted, both in terms of architectural and in terms of regale ornamentation on both the exterior and interior. Ludwig II of Bavaria is responsible for commissioning the castle in the mid-nineteenth century to use as a retreat, and he dedicated the castle to Richard Wagner due to his love of classical music composed by the composer.
