A country of immense contrasts, between East and West, Germany is a land of incredible richness, as any tourist guide to Germany you read will highlight. Its heritage, nature, culture, crafts and industry make it one of the most influential countries in Europe and the world. A country of free, charismatic and dynamic cities, the region is criss-crossed by superb rivers, covered with hills, low and medium mountains, agricultural plains and immense forests. Filled with castles and churches, history can be read everywhere. The Germans have built themselves a pleasant living environment, with a decent urban planning, punctuated by a mug of beer, a sausage stand, cafés and bistros, parks occupied by all, green leisure activities... The country also has an exceptional cultural offer with a high quality of museums, music and iconography; a generous, modern cuisine open to outside influences; a great diversity, if we consider the contrast between the conservative Bavarian countryside and the alternative environments of Hamburg or Berlin, between Cologne and Bremen. It will feature the most rigorous philharmonic orchestras alongside the most avant-garde sound experimenters. And this trend can be found in all areas. So well known for its economic efficiency, its cars and its exports, Germany is still too little known for tourism. It is however a first choice destination, with many treasures in its bag that you will discover with your travel guide.
