The German Cities

German cities offer a warm welcome, good food, great shopping and are steeped in history and tradition. Hamburg is a pulsating maritime city with great shopping, a historical harbour and the world famous 'Reeperbahn'.

Munich offers Bavarian charm with an Italian feel - it is often called Italy's most northerly city. Heidelberg with its famous ruined castle offers the Philosophers' Walk with stunning views of the old town.

The capital Berlin is edgy, vibrant and constantly reinvents itself.  Traces of the decadent twenties, the war, the wall and the subsequent 25 years of reunification remain, yet the city has reinvented and rediscovered itself to become one of the main influences of European culture.

Potsdam, on the outskirts of Berlin, offers the Baroque beauty of Sans Sanssouci and the New Gardens along with many UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Wiesbaden and Würzburg are lesser known cities but both are worth a visit, not least for their classic buildings, while the picturesque Thuringian city of Erfurt features half-timbered houses on the Krämerbrücke.

Lakes & Mountains

From the deserted beaches of the North Sea and Baltic coastlines, Germany rises majestically through regions of vast forests and woodlands, peaceful lakes and onto the towering peaks of the Bavarian Alps. The landscape is dotted with picturesque towns and villages, each of them with their own unique traditions, identity and cuisine.

Enjoy the breathtaking alpine scenery that forms the magnificent backdrop for fairy-tale castles and beautiful churches. Neuschwanstein castle is the most recognisable castle in the country; Garmisch-Partenkirchen can boast tradition set amongst the highest mountains in the country; and Berchtesgaden offers the nearby Lake Königsee and the infamous Eagle's Nest. Closer to the capital, Grünewald Forest situated within Berlin's city boundaries, is a great verdant area with several lakes.

Festivals & Themed holidays

The Oktoberfest is one of the most famous festivals in the world. With a massive funfair surrounding the festival a splendid time is guaranteed for all. For lovers of strong beer there is also the 'Starkbierzeit' (Strong Beer Festival) usually held in March. The Stuttgart Cannstatter Wasen is the second largest beer festival in Germany. Other festivals like the Hamburg Dom offer good family entertainment and great rides.

There are various other festivals that simply must be experienced while in Germany, such as the 'Rhine in Flames' or the Cologne Carnival which offers chocolate and flowers to the good catchers in the crowd. The floats are particularly striking and range from political comment to decorative. Add to this mix the great German theme parks, the many classical music events, operas in Berlin, Dresden, Munich and Bayreuth, to name a few of the most famous venues, the great art galleries, the magnificent museums, the many wine festivals and even onion festivals!

That's without mentioning the many themed roads to you can visit such as the Romantic Road, the sandy beaches, the historical gardens, the family parks, the car museums, the many sporting facilities and the many UNESCO sites - all this demonstrates that in Germany, there really is something for everyone!

Family-friendly holidays

Germany is the perfect destination for families and we have a selection of family parks on offer in this brochure. These parks are normally found in the more picturesque regions of the country, and usually require the use of a car.

Accommodation at these parks are generally in the form of bungalows or self-contained apartments, with facilities on site usually including a swimming pool, tennis courts, walking tracks and more. Please contact us for more details on the range of parks on offer in Germany and let us know the region you are interested in visiting.

We can also offer hotels at theme parks such as Europa Park and Phantasialand as well as organise trips to other similar attractions. For example, if you wish to visit the Tropical Island resort near Berlin or Legoland near Ulm, we can organise tickets along with your booked holiday.
