Germany, a charming country located in the heart of Europe, has always had a leading role in Europe and even worldwide. Its history is extremely ancient and full of events that have marked the course of world history.
Germany offers a natural and cultural patchwork that greets visitors with every possible experience. The natural landscape is various and evocative, ranging from The Black Forest, a huge green area in southern Germany known for its extraordinary forests and landscapes, to the always charming Lake Constance, the romantic valleys of the Rhine and Mosel regions that offer spectacular views and great wines, and the alpine region of Bavaria that appeals with its beautiful world-class ski resorts.
A vacation in Germany dedicated to architecture
A vacation in Germany is a must for all lovers of art and architecture. Many cities have been completely rebuilt since the Second World War and the country’s architectural creativity has particularly been witnessed in Berlin. The Reichstag (German Parliament) and the Brandenburg Gate are both symbols of German reunification while the glitzy Potsdamer Platz is the modern benchmark for the city. The magical city of Dresden was considered the “Florence of the Elbe”. Weimar was one of the major centers of German culture and the cradle of the Bauhaus artistic movement.
