Why visit Germany?

Germany’s location in the heart of Europe means it enjoys warm summers and often beautiful, white winters, particularly in the east of the country. The summer is the perfect time to visit the vineyards in the south of the country, while the cities are gorgeous in the winter.

Nowhere does Christmas markets with quite as much aplomb as Germany. Up and down the country, each year, market stalls come out offering numerous delights; from hand crafted toys, tree decorations, candles and tasty treats. Gluhwein is heated for the festive season and aromas of gingerbread fill the air.
