A flight to Germany will provide you with the opportunity to experience its complex history. From the modern cities to the picturesque villages set in the heart of lush forests, each region of Germany has its own distinct characteristics. A flight to Frankfurt, the country’s financial capital and a major port with a history dating back to Roman times, will amaze you with its modern glass and steel structures sit side by side with its wonderful historic buildings. The old centre of Frankfurt was simply made for wandering through the streets, watching the world go by.
The Saturday flea market on the riverfront is well worth a visit on your trip to Frankfurt. Your trip to Frankfurt will not be complete without visiting one of the finest zoos in Europe, the Frankfurt Zoo. The zoo prides itself on its conservation initiatives with many of the species living in their natural environment. Summer afternoons can be whiled away sitting under the cool shade of a tree, while listening to one of the many Summer outdoor concerts.
Munich, only a short flight away from Frankfurt, has everything expected of a cosmopolitan city, from the stunning architecture of the 18th century buildings and modern skyscrapers, to the bustling markets and avenues. But unlike other European cities, the delights of Munich can be savoured in a short space of time.
Wander through the streets and eventually you will stumble upon the true heart of the city, Marienplatz. Sit at one of the outdoor cafes, sipping coffee, while watching the street performers and the Glockenspiel, the famous clock tower, which will mesmerise you with its delicate figures, dancing to the chimes. To get into the real spirit of Munich, visitors must visit one of the many festivals, particularly Oktoberfest. Your trip to Germany should also combine a visit to this festival with an educational tour of Andechs. This is a hilltop Monastery built in 1675. After enduring the slight arduous trek to the Monastery, you will be rewarded with stunning views and maybe a free sample of the monk’s home brew.
