Tourism > Tourism in Germany

The first place tourists visit in Germany usually is the very vital capital Berlin with its suburb city Potsdam. But other German places also are worth a visit. Germany is famous for picturesque little towns, old castles and villages, especially along River Rhine (Rüdesheim[?], Bingen[?], St. Goar[?]). Tourists in Northern Germany often go to its metropolis Hamburg or visit the old cities of Bremen, Luebeck and Schwerin. Also Northern German sea resorts North Sea and Baltic Sea are worth a visit. In Central Germany there are many provincial capitals each with a special flair: British-like Hanover, Dusseldorf and Cologne with its carnival season, the financial capital Frankfort, Leipzig, Dresden or Nuremberg with their christmas fairs. In Germany to ski is very popular in its resorts in Harz mountains, Thuringia Forest, Black Forest and the Alps of Bavaria. Munich, the bavarian capital, is famous for its Oktoberfest, a beer-festival. In the Alps visitors can take a view onto the most known sight in Germany: Neuschwanstein castle. In Southwestern Germany there are vineyards, especially along Lake Constance. Germany is situated in the very centre of Europe so short-term trips to France, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria or any other neighbouring country are easy to be done.
