Lower Saxony travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Zoos
A land with a strong sense of tradition, Lower Saxony is the country's second largest state by area. It was created in 1946 out of a patchwork of bustling urban districts and quiet rural retreats. Most of its current territory once thrived as an independent kingdom. It was inhabited from about 1000 CE by Old Saxons (hence the name). Named somewhat confusingly, the area actually lies to the north of "Upper" Saxony. Lower Saxony boasts its own distinct character, complete with age-old culinary traditions, folk festivals, unusual local sports, and colorful ethnic costumes. Most of the region's major cities and economic hubs are in the urbanized central and southern sections, where much of the local tourism industry concentrates. The less-developed northeast remains the largest uncultivated area in the country. Large tracts of land designated as nature preserves are great for sightseeing tours of the outdoors. Don't miss a chance to vacation in the so-called Old Country: this bucolic land just south of the Elba River is noted for being one of the country’s largest fruit-farming districts.

Bavaria travel guide

4.4
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Castles
Bavaria is the country's largest, and one of Europe's oldest continuously existing states. It was established as a duchy in 907. Situated in the southeastern corner of the country, Bavaria is probably what most non-Germans have in mind when they imagine a vacation in Germany. Ironically, much of this region is culturally more like the neighboring Austria and Switzerland. There's much more to Bavaria than just the stereotypical leather trousers (lederhosen), sausages, and beer festivals. This region is one of the country's most popular destinations for tourism and is full of places to visit. It's rich in medieval cities, dense forests, towering mountains, sparkling lakes, picturesque castles, and thriving villages. Bavarians are regarded as the proudest of all Germans. They're loyal to their regional roots and traditions. To soak up the particular local culture of the rural areas, explore the countryside's picture-perfect villages on foot or by bicycle.

Canton of Vaud travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Castles · Monuments
The sophisticated Canton Vaud sits poised above majestic lakes and suspended across the Jura Mountains and Vaudoise Alps. Immaculate glacier skiing and fine dining are among the many things to do in this region. Lush pastures and sprawling green vineyards featured on the World Heritage List line the valleys dotted with hospitable mountain villages. The cities, on the other hand, offer extensive cultural life, world-class restaurants, and shopping. The capital city of Lausanne is home to the International Olympic Committee. Tourist attractions range from igloo adventures to hot-air balloon rides.

Piedmont travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Art Museums · Landmarks
Bordered by the Alps on three sides and often overlooked by casual tourists, the Piedmont region is famous for its wines, including Moscato D'Asti, Barolo, and Barbera, to name just a few. Piedmont's cuisine is renowned throughout Italy. Its exotic white truffles--a precious ingredient used in first-class restaurants around the world--are often compared to gold because of their staggering cost. An ideal holiday destination for foodies, the region is also known for its thriving industries of fresh produce, nuts, and chocolates. There are many places to visit in Piedmont, including several medieval castles, trendy spa resorts, and cities with both historical attractions and modern industries.

Cheshire travel guide

3.8
Zoos · Parks · Room Escape Games
An idyllic rural retreat for anyone looking to escape the bustle of the big urban centers, Cheshire boasts a rich heritage and history dating to before the Roman era. The region attracts walkers and cyclists, offering a varied landscape of wooded hillsides and gentle lowlands, as well as a sprawling countryside of traditional English market towns and cozy little villages. Cheshire remains a great place for leisurely sightseeing, as it is still relatively undiscovered by tourists. Most travelers invariably end up visiting the nearby giant cities of Manchester or Liverpool, but those choosing to extend their holiday in Cheshire reap the rewards of a slower pace of life and the warm hospitality of the friendly locals.
