Southern Germany offers magical landscapes with lush rolling hills, medieval towns and picturesque castles. Take in the scenic landscapes and awe inspiring views of the Alps in the Black Forest. Travel back in time with a visit to Rothenburg ob der Tauber and its well preserved medieval old town. Marvel at beautiful castles such as Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Impressive mountains and magnificent lakes make this an unforgettable romantic travel experience. Lederhosen, Oktoberfest, pretzels, a beautiful Alpine backdrop, excellent beer, storybook castles, and medieval towns… these can all be found in Southern Germany.
Many of Germany’s old traditions are still alive today. Centuries-old customs have been preserved and updated, and can make a unique contribution to your experience and enjoyment while travelling in Germany.
Indulge yourself with culinary delicacies from a bygone age. The Black Forest is home to the darkest, sweetest temptation in the whole of Germany – the Black Forest gateau (cake). Though beer was not invented in Germany, the art of brewing was undoubtedly refined to perfection here. Germany is home to around 5,000 different beers brewed in more than 1,300 breweries, over half of which are in Bavaria. Nowhere else in the world offers as much choice when it comes to beer. And that’s even with all varieties being produced in line with the German Beer Purity Law, which permits only the traditional ingredients of water, malt, hops and yeast. In summertime, the best way to enjoy a refreshingly cold beer is in one of the many beer gardens found up and down Germany.
