Germany is a fascinating destination combining historic treasures and dynamic cities. Germany’s most interesting cities are diverse and geographically widespread, from Munich near the Austrian border in the south, to Hamburg on the North Sea, and Berlin towards the eastern border with Poland. Sightseeing in Germany can be tailored using a combination of city packages and escorted tours. Germany city packages provide a combination of sightseeing, accommodation and transfers for maximum flexibility. Berlin the newly reconstituted capital city of Germany has been reinvented since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Remnants of the former divided city make this a fascinating experience. Berlin is definitely a city not to be missed.
Most visitors want to include a variety of sights and cities in Germany. Tours can show you all the highlights and more as they showcase different regions and cities. For independent travelers sightseeing in Germany, especially on the Romantic Road, can be on a modular basis using a combination of regular coach services, private transfers, guided sightseeing and hotel accommodation as required. The Romantic Road is one of the most popular touring areas of Germany, with delightful romantic towns such Rothenburg, Germany’s well preserved “Jewel of the Middle Ages” as well as Heidelberg with its magnificent Castle, town squares and cobble stoned laneways. In an idyllic setting the “Cinderella Castle” of Neuschwanstein built by King Ludwig 11 of Bavaria is another not to be missed highlight of sightseeing in Germany. The castle was opened to visitors only a few weeks after Ludwig’s death, now every year 1.3 million people visit "the castle of the fairy-tale king".
