Book tickets to Germany, one of Europe’s most culturally eclectic countries, and discover the many sides of this cosmopolitan land. Home to diverse scenery, ranging from the magnificent Alps to romantic river valleys, and equally diverse towns, with trendy Berlin and Hamburg contrasting with quaint medieval countryside villages, Germany is a country that will keep surprising you.
Best Things to Do in Germany
- Challenge yourself with a hike in the magnificent Bavarian Alps
- Embrace German folklore with a tour along the Fairy Tale Route, a 600 kilometer journey that passes some of the country’s most charming story-book architecture
- Travel west to see Cologne Cathedral, Germany’s largest and most significant cathedral
Beaches are hardly the first things that come to mind when most people think of Germany, which is perhaps why most tourists overlook the tranquil Rügen Cliffs. If you book flights to Germany in June you might also be able to catch Kiel Week, the largest sailing event in the world.
Most people associate Germany with the legendary Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest fair that takes place in Munich during September and October. Look for flight deals to Germany early in the year if you hope to arrive in time for this iconic celebration of beer and Bavarian culture. Or consider visiting one of this country’s lesser-known, yet equally exciting, beer festivals like the Stuttgart Cannstatter Volksfest.
Plan Your Germany Holiday
If you are heading to the Alps for the ski season, consider staying in Mittenwald or Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where the skiing is excellent, and where cheap hotels in Germany are relatively commonplace compared to some of the country’s more well-known cities and resorts.
