is a fascinating country steeped in history, where you can find
authentic recreations of medieval times, wonderful museums and traditional
festivals such as the famous Oktoberfest. However, Germany is a
very good choice for the English-speaking traveler, since many Germans
speak English and American influences such as fast food and casual
clothing are widespread!
Germany is famous for its castles and palaces. At many of them,
you will find medieval times painstakingly restored, with traditional
dancing, entertainment and even traditionally prepared medieval
food. But culture is found in the charming old cities of Germany
as well. Enjoy many museums and beautifully designed churches, famous
landmarks of classical cities also, musical forms such as
opera are very popular as well.
German food is hearty and very traditional, and of course consumed
with famous, authentic German beer. German beer, of course, is fascinating
in its own right there are even festivals devoted to it,
ranging from the popular Oktoberfest to smaller, more intimate festivals
in other towns. Festivals and other traditions are very popular
Germans celebrate more holidays than Americans, and there
always seems to be something going on.
