Germany is a beautiful country that is also full of wonderful people and steeped in history. Its official name is the Federal Republic of Germany and it is located on the Eastern edge of what most travelers know as Western Europe. Geographically, it is more accurate to say it is in Central Europe, with Denmark to the north, Poland and the Czech Republic to the east, Austria and Switzerland to the south, France to the southwest, and Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands to the west. Germany is the country with the largest economy and the largest population in the European Union. It is officially the eighth most visited country in the world. So many people visiting it each year must be onto something, right? Countries that send the largest number of tourists to Germany include the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. On top of being at the top of many foreign travelers’ lists, on a yearly basis over 30% of German residents choose to spend their holidays within their own country.

On top of its natural beauty and ease to get around, Germany is rated as one of the safest travel destinations worldwide. When visitors are asked why they chose Germany as their holiday destination, answers included the culture, the countryside, the cities, the cleanliness, safety, the cuisine, the shopping opportunities and the exciting nightlife. Germany is in fact the top-rated cultural travel destination for European visitors. It is a world-renowned global trade fair destination. Young Europeans between the age of 15 and 24 often cite Germany as the one destination they would like to visit first.

Germany has a very solid global image in general terms. This is thanks to its strong economy, its respect for authorities, its world class infrastructure and its quality goods. It is also home to some of the highest luxury travel destinations in Europe. The reason that Germany has not been overdeveloped in the countryside is because one third of the country’s land area is designated a protected landscape. This has ensured there will always be many outdoor spaces for people to enjoy the fresh air and even practice extreme sports.

Germany is home to many places that seem taken out of a fairytale. Although the term fairytale destinations may seem like a trendy slogan, the truth is that many of these so-called locations in Germany have been receiving travelers for years but were not so famous before people began posting their beauty on social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Fairytale destinations may not have started in Germany, but thanks to the introduction of some of Germany’s most popular tourist routes, such as the Romantic Road and the Fairy Tale Road, experiencing these magical places became an almost viral phenomenon. Some people call them German fairytale towns. Others will call them German medieval cities. The truth is, they are some of the prettiest towns in Germany. Getting around in Germany is super simple too, as it has some of the best infrastructure in the entire world.

Within the large cities, public transport is reliable and affordable. Visitors will find buses, trams, as well as above ground and underground trains that can take you practically to any point in the city. Outside of the main cities, you can also easily catch buses or high-speed trains to move around the country, but the most exhilarating way to cross the country is by driving on the Autobahn. Contrary to popular belief, not all stretches of the Autobahn are free of speed limits, so travelers beware! There are speed cameras in many places. In general, driving in Germany is very straightforward. There are no tolls on highways, streets across the country are well-paved and safe, and people here are good drivers. However, there could be traffic jams during the school holidays. The best time to visit Germany is at the beginning or end of the summer, between April and June or between August and October. Although the lines for attractions may be a little longer, in Germany this is not always the case, as locals tend to move out of town for the summer. At the end of the day, visitors will be sharing the queue with other visitors.

Additionally, Christmas time in Germany is the ideal time to see the Christmas Markets across the country. There are many tasty treats to eat and drink, as well as wonderful shows to see. This combined with great ski resorts make Germany a great option to visit in the winter. When it comes to food, there are many great regional cuisines to try across Germany. The most famous drinks and dishes include beer, sausages and sauerkraut.
