Join us on a holiday to Germany

Take an enthralling holiday to Germany and discover a country brimming with history and bewitching scenery. A country where fairy-tale castles perch above high mountain peaks and charming cities filled with cosmopolitan culture welcome eager visitors to their bustling streets.

Since the fall of the Wall in 1989, Berlin, has returned to the world stage as a vibrant, exciting, innovative metropolis, high on youthful exuberance. Outstanding modern landmarks, like Norman Foster’s startling Reichstag building and the glass-and steel-covered Hauptbahnhof, add futuristic energy to a cityscape that has long boasted iconic sights like Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden’s great Staatsoper and the green acres of the city’s central park, the Tiergarten, and where the reminders of 20th-century conflict - from Hitler's Bunker to Checkpoint Charlie and the grafitti-decorated remnants of the Berlin Wall - appear around almost every corner.

Away from the capital, the list of the country's cities is a roll call of must-see places filled with history, culture and everyday energy. Each one has something unique and fascinating to add to your holiday in Germany. See Dresden's Altstadt, faithfully restored after the ravages of the Second World War. Gaze up at the towering twin spires of Cologne's Gothic Cathedral with a glass of local Kolsch beer in hand. Visit Heidelberg, where Luther defended his 95 Theses, and Leipzig's Nikolaikirche, where East Germany’s peaceful revolution began back in 1989. Take in the views from the observation deck of Frankfurt's blue-glass Maintower, stroll down Munich's elegant Maximilianstrasse and past the intricate facade of its Neue Rathaus on Marienplatz, or explore Nuremberg's lovingly maintained medieval streets.

As wonderful as Germany's cities are, they aren't its greatest treasures. That place is reserved for its landscape. From the vast green and wildflower-strewn wetlands of the Wadden Sea on the western coast, and the Dover-like chalk cliffs of the island of Rugen on Germany's Baltic coast, to Bavarian Alpine meadows, Little Switzerland's dramatic rock formations in Saxony and Central Germany's ancient beech forest, the country's varied, spectacular scenery is one of any German holiday's unforgettable highlights. And nowhere is that more the case than amid the Black Forest's rolling hills or on the banks (or waves) of its famous rivers. Cruise the Rhine, through a beautiful landscape of vineyards, castles and quaint villages, and past the soaring cliffs of the Rhine Gorge and the legendary Lorelei, or follow the meandering Moselle to enchanting little wine towns like Cochem, Traben-Trarbach and Bernkastel-Kues. See breath-taking, multi-turreted Drachenburg Castle, or spend a day discovering 'Mad' King Ludwig's famous castle at Neuschwanstein. Wherever your holiday in Germany takes you, it's sure to be filled with fascinating sights, glorious scenery and unforgettable experiences.

Germany FAQs

First time going to Germany? Here a few questions (and answers!) you may find useful...

Time Zone
GMT +1
Avg. Flight Time
1 hour 40 minutes (Berlin)
Visa Required
Not required
  • Compared to other Central European countries, Germany is comparatively inexpensive to visit. 

  • The Euro is Germany's currency (€). For the latest exchange rates, please see XE. 

  • Broadly speaking, the best time to visit Germany is between May and September, when the weather is warm, with temperatures generally in the low to mid-20s.

    That being said, to avoid crowds and more expensive accommodation/ travel, it is best to visit outside of the peak summer months (July and August).

  • No. Nearly all Germans speak some English as it is mandatory to learn in school for a few years.

    That said, it can't hurt to know a few useful phrases:

    Hello – hallo

    Goodbye – auf wiedersehen

    Thank you – danke

    Please – bitte

    Do you speak English? – sprichst du Englisch?


  • Germany has a rich and fascinating history that is represented by the stunning architecture of the country's many castles, palaces, cathedrals and monuments.

    The country's lush landscapes, alpine mountains and forests are also a big draw to visitors. Beer is very popular in Germany, and each year people head to Munich in autumn to celebrate Oktoberfest.
