From world famous Oktoberfest to world class wine and cuisine; from half-timbered houses to ultra-modern cities; from sandy beaches to the highest summit of the Alps; Germany, in the very heart of Europe, offers something for everyone.
Germany welcomes visitors and is anxious to share an historical past and vibrant present. Castles, Cathedrals, Roman ruins and the history of the Reformation and the Third Reich can be found throughout the country including 33 UNESCO World Heritage sites. With more theaters, concert halls, and opera houses per capita than any other country in the world, high culture is an important part of German life. Germany’s classical music heritage is second to none: Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn, Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner are just a handful of the many great German composers whose music is performed throughout the world. But Germany’s musical life is thriving in other respects as well: a wide range of dynamic modern music can be heard at hundreds of jazz clubs, musical theatres and pop/rock events. Germany is the birthplace of Goethe and Schiller as well as the Bauhaus movement, which gave rise to much of modern architecture and design. Recent generations have firmly embraced organics and recycling making Germany one of the greenest countries in Europe.
Whether your tour is based on Jewish Heritage, the Reformation, the history of communism, the breweries of Franconia or the world’s great composers, Germany is a country of contrasts with a thousand possibilities.
