Germany is the largest country in Central Europe. The country consists of 16 states. Each of the states has its own characteristics and charm. It is one of Europe's most varied and cosmopolitan countries. Some cities, e.g. Dresden, draw visitors with their magnificent architecture, and some will touch your heart with historic and cultural treasures.
The world meets in Germany: The most famous German metropolises attract millions of tourists every year. Business travellers, art and culture enthusiasts, power shoppers, nature lovers and night owls – there is something for everyone. Germany also keeps a keen eye on its past, whether in the forms of culture, architecture or time-honored historic monuments. The architecture differs significantly from city to city.
Groundbreaking creativity and multicultural modernism are paired with long-held tradition and enchanting medieval houses. Far away from the city buzz and the vibrant nightlife, the beautiful, unspoiled German countryside charms with historic castles, the sky-scraping peaks of the Bavarian Alps and dramatic cliffs. Cyclists and hikers are drawn by the beauty of Germany’s nature and landscapes.
