Germany travel guide

4.5
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Historic Sites
Germany is the home of high culture, fine art, classical music, world-class sports, award-winning cuisine--and some of the world's best beers. It's also one of the major economic and political powers of the European continent. One of the founding members of the European Union, Germany is a federation of 16 states. Each boasts its own distinct culture, art, cuisine, regional traditions, and array of things to do. The country is known worldwide for its precision engineering and high-tech products. Equally, though, Germany is admired for its old-world charm and what is locally known as gemutlichkeit (coziness). This is one of the easiest countries in the world to explore, offering an abundance of sightseeing opportunities. German transportation runs with German efficiency. Therefore, getting around the various regions is almost always easy, quick, and pleasant. Visit the cities to explore museums, art galleries, modern restaurants, and trendy shops. Also be sure to venture deeper into the countryside. Here, you can discover ancient castles and bustling little villages. Often in these off-the-beaten-path areas, the main tourist attraction remains the simple hospitality of the friendly locals.

Schleswig-Holstein travel guide

4.2
Specialty Museums · Beaches · Landmarks
Germany's northernmost state with coasts on two seas, Schleswig-Holstein seems to possess two very distinct faces. Along its coastlines, the region features wide sandy beaches and is cut by deep fjords carved out by glaciers. These areas near the water contain some of the country's finest resorts and holiday centers. They attract visitors from around the world all year long, and are chock-full of things to do. The highlight of the region's western coast is a sprawling national park that shelters the densest bird population in this part of Europe. Hundreds of different species live or pass over this unusual water landscape, which is featured on the World Heritage list. Deeper inland, the region reveals its rural face. This countryside of seemingly endless pastures spreads as far as the eye can see. Schleswig-Holstein belonged to Denmark until the 19th century. You can expect to notice plenty of Scandinavian overtones while you vacation in the region. Several coastal towns contain award-winning recreations of ancient Viking settlements.

Mecklenburg-West Pomerania travel guide

4.1
Landmarks · Beaches · Castles
Claiming to be Germany's "must-sea" vacation destination, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania boasts nearly 2,000 km (1,243 mi) of coastline. Seaside resorts, sandy beaches, World Heritage-listed towns, and unspoiled natural areas are all within a seashell's throw. Take just a short drive from the Baltic Sea to start exploring one of continental Europe's largest unbroken areas of rivers and lakes. Deeper inland, the region's countryside is a colorful mosaic of small towns and sleepy villages. The surrounding rugged hills, sparkling lakes, and rivers were formed by glacial activity ages ago. A land rich in history and culture, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania contains more than 2,000 palaces, stately homes, and lavish gardens. Many now serve as venues for the state's array of things to do, including concerts, festivals, open-air operettas, and theatre performances. Rent a canoe to sail one of the region's countless lakes, or take a trip from the north of the state all the way to Berlin through the network of interconnected waterways.
