This vast and varied country is home to some of the trendiest cities in Europe. As well as being known for some of the best nightlife and food in Europe, the cities in Germany are also steeped in important world history. Our ‘Highlights of Germany’ tour will show you the best spots in the fascinating country, including the River Rhine, Hamelin, Berlin and The Romantic Road.

Berlin, its capital, has shot up the ranks of European cities in recent years, with many people now rating it as one of the best cities for quality of life and social activities. And it’s no surprise either, this gem of a city is a treasure trove of cafes, cool bars, and world-class cuisine.

But it’s not all about city life. Germany is also home to stunning countryside, farmland, lakes, mountains and beaches too.
