Holidays to Germany tick off folklore, mountain scenery, and historic cities peppered with world-famous landmarks. Germany’s appeal is so varied that no two trips here are the same. Cities, like Hamburg, and the expansive capital, Berlin, Germany has embraced its artistic, bohemian flair – a blend of old and new emerging from post-war reconstruction. The German capital will lure you in with its contemporary cityscape, where both modern and historically significant buildings come together. Living history, internationally renowned galleries, and UNESCO World Heritage sites are all waiting to be explored. Be tempted by Berlin’s exquisite international food scene, and the one-of-a-kind shopping experiences out in the west. A day in Berlin could see you joining a cycling tour of the city, strolling around hilltop Viktoriapark, and hopping between the five museums on the aptly-named Museum Island.
Whether it’s trekking through the Black Forest’s sweeping mountain ranges, partying hard on Hamburg’s world-famous Reeperbahn or delving into the country’s chequered past in Nuremberg, this European powerhouse ticks all kinds of boxes. Head for lakeside Lindau, which offers views over the snow-capped German Alps. A slew of smaller cities including Düsseldorf with its innovative cultural scene, or Cologne with its mighty cathedral – offer their own local specialities and sights.
The best time to visit Germany is during the peak season from middle to late summer in July through September. You’ll have the warmest weather, longest daylight hours, and most options for activities and events in the cities during this time
