Germany: Why go

Often overlooked by tourists, Germany is one of Europe's least visited leisure destinations, despite having excellent air links, great value for money, and lots to see when you arrive. It also offers great variety, from the sandy islands of Rugen and Uzedom in the Baltic down to the Alpine pastures of Bavaria, passing historic cities like Dresden and Cologne, as well as scenic spots such as the Rhine valley and the Schwarzwald (Black Forest).

We start our German coverage in the newly resplendent capital of Berlin – see our separate guide.
