GERMANY is one of the major political and economic powers of the European continent and a historic leader in many theoretical and technical fields. Few countries have had as much impact on the world as Germany has. From automotive, printing and medicine to pharmaceutical, western classical music, fairy tales, Oktoberfest and more, Germany has and is touching billions of people in some form or the other.
With nine European borders and a location smack in the heart of the continent, Germany could stake a convincing claim to being the most ‘European’ of all countries. But beyond the history for which Germany is more famous, it also captures your heart and soul with bewitching scenery, pulsating cities and a progressive culture. It’s also the birthplace of Martin Luther, Albert Einstein, Karl Marx, Goethe, Beethoven, the Grimm brothers, the one and only Hitler and other players on the world stage. As you travel around, you’ll have plenty of brushes with such genius but perhaps, Germany’s scenery lifts the spirit even more.
From the jagged peaks of the big-shouldered Bavarian Alps and the flowering mountain pastures where cows graze lazily to Castles centuries old and the mighty rivers that flow through romantic valleys, past steep vineyards and fairy-tale forests, Germany seduces you like no other country can. Call it Rhineland or Deutschland, to all those who love to travel and explore beautiful sights, Germany is a mighty land.
