From fairy-tale landscapes sprinkled with medieval castles to rolling vineyards and grim WWII landmarks, Germany is the Europe of postcards and history books. But the country's undeniable impact on European history is only part of the picture: Germans mix their traditions freely with equal parts modernism. Here, nature, culture, history and the future are all close, friendly neighbours. Take in a music performance-classical or techno? Join the party-Bavarian beer garden or sleek Berlin nightclub and fine wine? Either way you'll join the fun-spirited Germans at their most hospitable: with a huge beer stein (or wine glass) in hand.
