Visiting Germany

More than 369 million people visited Germany in 2010. It’s no wonder. Germany has an appealing mix of modern city and rugged countryside. Whether it’s Oktoberfest or a football game in Munich, or hiking or skiing in the German Alps, the variety of things to do in Germany makes the country an attractive destination for vacationers. One of the most-visited landmarks in Germany is the Cologne Cathedral. Its intricate Gothic architecture is part of what attracts more than six million visitors per year. Munich, home of Oktoberfest, draws more than five million annually. The festival, which runs from late September to the first weekend in October, is an important part of Bavarian culture and a fantastic way for visitors to get a real taste of what German culture is all about.

 If you really want to taste Germany, try one or more of the over 1,500 different types of sausage in the country. Pair your main dish with a German beer and top the meal off with a Bavarian pastry before heading to a local football match. Germany’s football league boasts the second highest average attendance of any professional sports league in the world! You will not want to visit Germany without attending a match. There, you will get a true German experience, sitting among native Germans, talking to them and rooting for the players

German-speaking Countries
