Germany Travel Guide

by our Germany expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyThere are bands – oompah and otherwise, there’s hearty traditional food, there’s a splendid procession, there’s a 180 year tradition. Oh and did we mention the beer? It’s Munich’s Oktoberfest, of course, and the Wiesn ‘meadow’ beer is specially brewed for the party by all six of Bavaria’s brewers. More of a wine-buff? Try the enchanting Rhine and Moselle valleys where hillside medieval castles seem to hang suspended over the neat lines that mark a well-kept vineyard – all warmly welcoming of tasters and trenchermen. For senses other than the palate, leave the Lorelei and the Rhine-maidens and follow the mighty river to Cologne where the glorious cathedral is a Gothic miracle in stone and glass that will set the plainest soul singing. No-one, on the other hand, is going to rave about the beauty of Berlin. But there is an almost tangible sense of history that fascinates – from the Prussian monarchy’s Brandenburg Gate, to the remnants of the Wall and Checkpoint Charlie - physical reminders of the Cold War divided City.
