We had the amazing opportunity to visit Cologne this holiday season. As you have probably heard, Cologne has one of the best Christmas markets in all of Europe. And we do have to say that it lived up to the hype! The entire city was decorated with lights and decorations, and the markets were fantastic.
Berlin seems to be the city on everybody’s lips recently, making quite the name for itself as one of the most happening locations in Europe. We recently explored Berlin on a budget and were amazed by just how affordable it is. In fact, some days we spent next to nothing at all, as there were so many free things to do in Berlin to keep us occupied.
With Munich’s central location and good connectivity to the rest of Germany, the city is mostly preferred to be the base camp for any day trips. It usually takes 2-3 hours to reach anywhere in and around Munich. So, it is the ideal place to stay in while making a day trip in and around.
Dresden has many faces: baroque masterpieces, collections of artworks, cultural institutions, ordinary sleeping quarters with typical DDR buildings, quiet parks and high-profile industrial parties in abandoned buildings.
It is a well-known thing that Germany has the very best collection of castles in Europe. This includes a wonderful diversity, raging from fairytale castles to Medieval wonders. Some of these castles were erected to protect cities while others were just the desire of mad kings.
Come explore Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, home to imperial palaces and fairy-tale castles, Bavarian villages and Baroque cities, the mysterious Black Forest and the snow-capped Alps. This is storybook Europe, where half-timbered inns painted with festive flowers lean over quiet country roads, and the Gothic spires of castles rise from craggy bluffs above the Rhine River.
