We love Germany. It’s a place of modern cities and ancient forests, tasty sausages and top-notch beer, romantic castles and 21st-century architecture, Beethoven symphonies and electronic pop… and it’s all in easy reach
Berlin is full of brilliant attractions and landmarks including some of Europe’s most exciting museums; the city even has its very own “Museum Island”. It also has a rich supply of galleries exhibiting everything from contemporary art to Asian collections and work dating from earlier centuries. And it’s no surprise that Germany’s capital is awash with historical sights, from the world- famous to the Checkpoint Charlie border crossing.
The twin-spired Cologne Cathedral is regularly voted Germany’s most popular tourist attraction. And it’s just one of the city’s many attractions. Cologne’s eclectic museum collection covers everything from art to chocolate, sports and even Roman history. Indeed, diversity is Cologne’s strength; travelling through town you could come across an ancient Roman wall, medieval churches, postwar architecture, avant-garde structures and even a new postmodern quarter on the Rhine.
When it comes to fashion and art, few European cities rival Düsseldorf. It’s home to leading-edge architecture and vibrant nightlife and yet it’s also a place of wide streets lined by elegant shops, with a ring of parks and gardens encircling the downtown area. There are dozens of museums and more than 100 art galleries. And every July the city hosts the “Largest Fair on the Rhine”, a week-long funfair attracting more than four million visitors.
Frankfurt has been described as the “international financial and trade fair city with the most imposing skyline in Germany”. But that’s not all it offers. There are museums on the Main banks, numerous historical sights, the Frankfurt School, the Kaiserdom (Cathedral), the Paulskirche (cradle of German democracy), Ebbelwei and Frankfurter sausages, and much more. And they all come with a hospitable atmosphere that stems from Frankfurt’s centuries- old role as a trading centre.
