Germany Vacations

Discover Germany's old-world charm.

Germany: a world leader, political and cultural force, and picturesque adventure. Share a pint with locals in the beer halls of Munich or walk along the Berlin Wall, winding back into history. Explore ancient castles nestled in leafy foothills, stopping in traditional villages as you discover why the country is known for "Gemütlichkeit" (coziness). Cruise down the waters of the Rhine in summer sunshine or shred through the Alps at the peak of winter.

No matter what brings you to Germany, you'll marvel at the country's diverse regions and cities, each brimming with its own character.

Rich cities, snug villages, and romantic roads.

The most common misconception about Germany is its homogeneity. Immersive art and music cultures, historic monuments, and world-class museums will tempt the urban explorer in cities like Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, and Stuttgart. In the countryside, impressive architecture, flourishing vineyards, and enchanting mountains will delight travellers as they're whisked away into landscapes out of a Brothers Grimm tale.

The Culture

Social conventions in Germany are on the formal side, with handshakes as a common form of greeting. It is important to say "guten tag" (good day) or hello when entering a store. When leaving, don't forget to say “auf wiedersehen” (until we meet again). German punctuality may be a stereotype, but there is some truth to it: Germans are often on time and do not appreciate lateness. When invited to dinner, visitors should not start eating before the host says “guten appetit” — literally "good appetite".

Naturally, German is the official language of the country. Minority languages like Danish, Sorbic, English, and French can also be heard. Christianity is the most common religion in Germany, with smaller followings of Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism.
