Germany

 
Germany From the high Alps in the South, the Bavarian plain, and the flowing hills of central Germany to the coast of the North and Baltic Sea: it all looks like a miniature train landscape packed with the nicest of old towns, medieval houses, gothic churches. Thanks to the different regional princedoms, earldoms, monarchies and states Germany did not unite until the last centuries. Thus Germany has not one but many major cities. And each city has its own unique character, formed by its history and the surrounding region. Each is a whole new world unto itself in which you will experience not only different architectural styles and art treasures but also a very distinctive lifestyle. Local traditions and mentalities are clea...
 

Karlsruhe

 
Karlsruhe Owing to its even architectural features, Karlsruhe reflects the spirit of rationalism. Founded as a Grand-Ducal residential city, Karlsruhe accommodates the oldest technological university of Germany. Nowadays, the city is a Residence of Law that comprises the supreme German courts of justice. Although the City (or what the residents refer to, i.e. the shopping mile around the triangle Marktplatz, Europaplatz and Palace or Schloss) is rather small, but there are som exceptionally nice residential areas (like the Weststadt) and it's well worth exploring all the city's small side alleys and have an espresso or cocktail in one of the many hidden cafes and bars. Karlsruhe can be used as a basis for exploring the Black...
 

Mannheim

Stuttgart

 
Stuttgart Beautifully set in the Swabian Mountains and at the edge of the Black Forest Stuttgart is the home of Mercedes Benz. Hardly surprising that one of the best visited museums is the Mercedes Benz Museum. Stuttgart is spread across a variety of hills, valleys and parks - unusual for German cities and often a cause of surprise to visitors who primarily associate the city with its industrial reputation as the Cradle of the automobile. The Baden-Wurttemberg metropolis has a wide range of sights to offer - be it the four castles, the famous Weissenhof estate or the television tower. The most notable feature of Stuttgart, however, is its friendly atmosphere and hospitality. The city's charms do not unfold immediately to the...

Weimar

 
Weimar Weimar has played an important role in the development of German culture. The name is still inseparably connected with Goethe, Schiller, Herder and Nietzsche, who all made it their home. The same did the Cranachs and J.S. Bach as well as the architects and designers of the Bauhaus school. Weimar's part in the politics of Germany is scarcely less significant: It was chosen as the seat of government of the democratic republic. ==== WEIMAR - SIGHTSEEING The Goethe Museum - Ohann Wolfgang von Goethe studied here and wrote here his most famous work Faust. The house had been given to him by the Duke Carl Augustus. In the present-day museum one can see items associated with Goethe and with other poets from the Enlighte...
 

Bonn

 
Bonn Bonn is a pretty university town in the West of Germany. Originally founded by the Romans as a depot for their Agrippan Legion (Castra Bonnensis) Bonn is slightly younger than nearby Cologne, which later became the capital of roman Germany. Like in Cologne, christianisation arrived early in the region, and it is not without logic that the archbishops of Cologne chose Bonn as their residence after falling out with the strong farmer and burgher lobby (Battle of Worringen) in 1288. The residence, which was rebuilt a number of times during the Middle Ages today houses the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhem University. ==== BONN - LOCATION The region around Bonn includes the idyllic Siegtal valley, the romantic Siebengebirg...
 

Saarland

 
Saarland The Saarland is, beside the city states Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen the smallest of Germany's state regions. It is named after the Saar River, which is, in fact a tributary of the Moselle River (a Rhine tributary) and runs through the state from the south to the northwest. It is situated in the very Southwest of Germany, between France, Luxembourg and the German regions Pfalz and Hunsruck. The countryside is beautiful and the area has a lot of French influence, having at times been part of France. You can easily see all of Saarland by bike and throw in a trip to Luxembourg and France as well. It has low, partly wooded hills and is drained by the river Saar, which flows in endless bows from the industrial regions of Saa...
