Germany travel guide

Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Historic Sites
Germany is the home of high culture, fine art, classical music, world-class sports, award-winning cuisine--and some of the world's best beers. It's also one of the major economic and political powers of the European continent. One of the founding members of the European Union, Germany is a federation of 16 states. Each boasts its own distinct culture, art, cuisine, regional traditions, and array of things to do. The country is known worldwide for its precision engineering and high-tech products. Equally, though, Germany is admired for its old-world charm and what is locally known as gemutlichkeit (coziness). This is one of the easiest countries in the world to explore, offering an abundance of sightseeing opportunities. German transportation runs with German efficiency. Therefore, getting around the various regions is almost always easy, quick, and pleasant. Visit the cities to explore museums, art galleries, modern restaurants, and trendy shops. Also be sure to venture deeper into the countryside. Here, you can discover ancient castles and bustling little villages. Often in these off-the-beaten-path areas, the main tourist attraction remains the simple hospitality of the friendly locals.

Riviera of the North
Germany's largest island, Rugen features 574 km (356.7 mi) of coastline. Originally a peaceful getaway, the island rose to popularity near the turn of the 20th century among upper-class Germans, including Otto von Bismarck. Though still popular as a vacation spot, the island is large enough that you'll have no problem finding a low-key corner of your own. Home to many resort towns and centers, Rugen residents and visitors partake in plenty of outdoor adventuring, such as horseback riding and yachting. Foodies will especially like the high-quality seafood in nearly every restaurant.
