This newly revised and updated guide tells you everything you need to know about visiting Germany. Covering the entire country region by region, the guide begins in the youthful capital of Berlin and proceeds to Mecklenburg, Hamburg, Niedersachsen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Hessen, Thuringe, Sachsen, northern Bavaria, Munich and the Alps, and finally Baden-Wurtemberg. Interesting narratives describe the best sites to visit (as well as lesser-known ones), complete with detailed background descriptions and how best to tour each one. Among the special features are self-guided walking and driving tours: Stroll along the streets of ever changing Berlin, for instance, or through a breathtaking corner of the Black Forest. National Geographic and local experts provide insider tips on favorite or little known sites and events, and dozens of sidebars highlight experiences that show you how to truly get the most from your trip, including attending the medieval festivals celebrated at many castles in the Rhine Valley; touring underground Berlin; surfing and windsurfing off the northern Baltic coast; and learning how to brew beer in Bavaria. A chapter full of practical information rounds out the guide, including how to get to Germany and an extensive listing of author-picked hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. The National Geographic Traveler series is aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and look to a guidebook for expert advice and insider tips from a trustworthy source. We offer ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the feel of each destination not easily found online.
