Beer. Oktoberfest. Schnitzel. Riesling. By the looks of it, one would assume Germany has merely a gastronomic reputation, but that is not the case and there is so much more to Germany than meets the eye. A federal parliamentary republic headed by a Chancellor, it is a global leader with a thriving economy and very high standards of living. A highly developed nation, its citizens enjoy a universal health care system, social security, and free university education.

Steeped as it were in a rich and long cultural past, Germany has to its credit many famous personas from the field of arts, humanities, and sciences. It is ranked one among the top tourist destinations and has many World Heritage sites within its precincts. This nation is the seventh most visited country in the world with Berlin being the third most visited city destination in Europe.

Blessed with a diverse landscape from the Alps to the Black Forest, Baltic coastline and the North Sea and the picturesque Rhine River Valley, it always sports a picture-postcard look of natural bounty. All this provides a natural playground for those who love to ski, hike or be on the waters.  Cruise the Rhine, and enjoy the vistas of medieval castles, churches and picturesque villages that dot the shore. And if history is your thing, Germany has plenty to offer. Immerse yourself in the history of Europe as told in Germany’s castles, palaces, museums, and war memorials. Marvel at masterpieces like the Cologne Cathedral, the Brandenberg Gate, the Reichstag, the Neuschwanstein Castle, Heidelberg Castle, Dresden Swinger, the Walhalla Memorial, the Europa Park and many more. This nation is the seventh most visited country in the world with Berlin being the third most visited city destination in Europe. Be inspired by this resilient country’s post-war reunification and revitalization to becoming Europe’s economic powerhouse.
