Germany holidays

This grand dame has many sides – all at once it’s traditional and contemporary, urban and rural. And that’s the beauty of Germany. Just when you think you’ve unravelled all its layers, it sprouts some more. Whether the gothic splendour of Cologne or edgy panache of Berlin, you’ll fall head over heels for the country’s roll call of magical cities.

Unrivalled history

Germany’s heritage needs no introduction. Each of its cities is like an open-air museum, speckled with evocative nods to the past. The remains of the Berlin Wall are a must-see, while Cologne’s magnificent cathedral soars high above the Rhine and hides many masterpieces.

Hearty cuisine

There’s no better way to get to know a country properly than through your taste buds. And in Germany, you’re in for a gastronomic treat. Juicy bratwurst, tender schnitzel and crispy potato pancakes are among time-honoured dishes here, but a wave of new-age cuisine can be found too. Seek out street food for a globe-trotting feast, washed down with a stein of beer, of course.

Festive charm

The Christmas markets we know and love can be traced back to Germany. It’s here these seasonal celebrations began and there’s no better place to experience them than at their original source. Wrap cold fingers around a steaming mug of glühwein, nibble on delicious gingerbread and peruse charming stalls, all while admiring twinkling Christmas trees.
