Berlin’s world-class museums, bustling bars, galleries and monuments; Rugen Island, with its rugged chalk cliffs, windswept beaches, Romantic-era spa architecture and tree-lined country roads; Dresden, with its baroque beauty on the banks of the majestic Elbe; Cologne’s magnificent cathedral; the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bamberg; the sandy dunes of Sylt, a North Sea island with fabulous beaches and surf; the beer halls of Munich, ideally in September during the Oktoberfest; Lubeck, a Hanseatic gem; Muritz National Park, where you can go paddling and camping in a paradise teeming with birds; Bremen, a metropolis in miniature, with lovely red-brick and Art Nouveau architecture; the Alpine resorts of Bavaria, including Berchtesgaden, with dramatic peaks, dreamy lakes and superb walking trails; drive or cruise along the Rhine or Mosel, visiting castles, medieval villages and superb vineyards along the way; the walled medieval towns of Rothenburg and Trier, both with wonderful Christmas markets; the Christmas market at Nuremberg, oldest – and still most picturesque – in the world.
Hiring a car is probably the best way to explore the country, which has as good a network of roads as you’ll find anywhere in the world. Driving the Rhine and Mosel valleys is particularly rewarding, littered as they are in medieval castles and villages, as well as world-class wineries.
Buses and trains also represent a relatively cheap and highly efficient way of exploring the country.
British Airways flies to Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Hanover, Frankfurt and Munich. Flight time is about 2 hours.
We are open Mon 8.30-17.30, Tue-Fri 9-17.30 Sat 9.30-16.00.
