If you prefer the comfort of travelling by train “Deutsche Bahn”, the German Railway, provides an excellent service, ideal for a rail or air-rail holiday organised by Travel without Borders.
2. HIGH STANDARDS OF ACCOMMODATION
Whether you opt for the smaller, more traditional “olde worlde” type hotel, often found in the countryside regions, or a glitzy designer hotel in a city, one thing you can be assured of is that the standard is always high and the service professional and welcoming. The range of accommodation in Germany is vast and Travel without Borders can help you select the most suitable one for you on a tailor-made holiday.
3. EATING OUT IS GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY AND THE FOOD IS GOOD!
Exchange rate aside, eating out is Germany has always been good value for money. You do not need to eat at a fine dining restaurant, there are “Gaststätte” a cross between a restaurant and a pub, or there are the village inns, “Gasthof.” The emphasis is on simple home cooking at a reasonable price. If you just fancy a snack, try one of the many “Imbiss” stands.
4. GERMANY AND ITS VARYING LANDSCAPES
Germany is a country of landscape contrasts. Imagine the difference between sandy shorelines in the north of Germany with a combination of chic and rustic beaches against the Bavarian Alps in the south with its lakes and fairy tale castles. The landscapes are so diverse, with coastlines and islands, towering majestic mountains, blue lakes, dark forests and long winding rivers. No matter what kind of scenic holiday experience you are looking for, whether it be the vine-clads mountains of the Moselle valley, the luscious Black Forest or the Lüneburg Heathland, Travel without Borders can advise you on your bespoke holiday.
5. GERMANY IS HOME TO THE MOST FUN CITY IN THE WORLD
Berlin has been ranked the most fun and popular city above London, Paris, Tokyo and New York. Due to its stimulating environment and cultural centre, Berlin offers something for everyone. However, Berlin is not the only city to offer a unique experience to the visitor. There are 10 cities in Germany dubbed the “Magic Cities”: Cologne, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Bremen, Leipzig, Munich, Nuremberg & Stuttgart.
6. GERMANY IS A LAND RICH IN CULTURE AND HISTORY
Germany is a land rich in cultural interest, abundant in castles, churches, world class museums, operas, concerts, art galleries and theatres. Germany presents a wealth of well-preserved historic relics, which serve as evidence of the various eras in German history. In some cases, these are Roman remains, in other magnificent works of art. Germany is also home to no less than 44 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and as such ranks among the countries with the highest density of natural and cultural treasures.
