Germany is a fascinating fusion of old and new.

The bohemian streets of Berlin act as a fertile breeding ground for hip art, unique design and innovative ideas, while heritage-filled Munich boasts historic architecture in the form of impressive Baroque and Rococo buildings. In between, travellers will find stretches of idyllic countryside, impossibly gorgeous castles, charming university towns and boisterous Bavarian beer halls. Be introduced to the progressive cities and romantic splendour of Germany and never look back.
