Visiting Germany

Germany offers such a wealth and variety of tourist attractions, both great and small, that sometimes it seems hard to know where to start on a visit. Our impulse behind writing guides on visiting Germany was to help not just tourists, but also the adventurous international readership of our site to make the most of their time here.

If you browse around this page, you’ll find guides on visiting unusual and beautiful towns and villages, tips on how to avoid the country’s worst tourist traps, and feature articles on Oktoberfest and German castles. We hope we can help you make the most of your holidays, whether you're staying in the beautiful Alps or hip Berlin!
