From book fairs and beer festivals through to Weihnachten and Wurst, Germany provides everything you’ll need for a fantastic visit. Fly to Germany in Alitalia’s renowned ‘Italian Style’ and explore some of the country’s greatest cities.
Berlin is a city that emanates culture and sophistication, particularly as you stroll along the famous boulevard Unter Den Linden. Try also the ‘Berlinale,’ the world’s largest film festival with over 400 projections and 300,000 tickets sold. Düsseldorf is known as a center for business and fashion shows, as well as being home to some of Germany’s best museums and galleries. In the city of Frankfurt you’ll find one of the biggest exhibition halls in the world and a global reputation for science museums and great dining. The southern city of Munich is inescapably associated with its beer festival. For some contrast, visit its many castles and nearby breathtaking mountain scenery. While Stuttgart’s ballet charms aficionados, devotees of other arts will be impressed by the collections in the State Art Gallery and City Art Museum.
The buses and trains are cheap and reliable. When you travel to Germany, book your internal travel tickets in advance to save money. Visit in December and be entranced by Germany’s ‘Christmas Wonderland’ markets.
