As a tourist destination, Germany can really be described as a veritable 'sleeping giant' waiting to be discovered. The Rhine, for example, really is the classic river-cruising river. It's easy to get to, the scenery is beautiful and varied, as are the cities and different stopping-off points which each have their own charm and history. It is no surprise, therefore, that a Rhine cruise is the most popular choice for first-time river-cruisers, but offers a lot to those who have fallen in love with this way of taking a holiday.
Christmas Markets in cities such as Cologne, Nuremberg and Berlin are well-known and well-visited by travellers from across the world, as well as being integral to every German family's preparation for the Festive Season. Munich's famous Oktoberfest, which confusingly, mostly takes place in September is a gives many people the perfect excuse for visiting this elegant city - known as the gateway into the Alps. However, the idea behind encouraging you to experience more of Germany is to show you the many other beautiful parts of this country that are often overlooked - that's if they people knew that they existed to start with. Did you know, for example, that Germany has some of Europe's most beautiful beaches? The Baltic Coastline has mile after mile of coastline, and is a wonderful destination in the summer, if, for no other reason than enjoying its great sea-food.
There are huge areas of pristine forests down the middle of the country, punctuated by picturesque villages and historic towns that many people know little or nothing about. And, coming further south, you have stunning mountains, and in Lake Constance - or the Bodensee in German - one of Europe's most spectacular lakes, with islands, such as Mainau that veritably spring into life from April onwards, and are a blaze of colourful flowers - as well as being the perfect place to sample 'real' German wines...with not a drop of Liebfraumilch in sight. Or, think about heading eastwards to Potsdam and Dresden, where a world of beautiful music from Bach to Wagner awaits.
