Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Why visit Germany?

Germany’s landscape is unparalleled. Within an instant it varies from the dense, ancient woodlands of the Black Forest to the crystal waters of its countless lakes and rivers. Germany’s Romanesque revival castles offer flashes of ivory and gold amongst the rich green scenery and transport wanderers into the fairy tale world that Germany is famous for.

In direct contrast, Germany also offers some of the most modern cities in Europe, with metropolises like Berlin, Hamburg and Düsseldorf at the forefront of any and all cultural movements on the continent. Book your ferry to Germany with DFDS today, and get thinking about where you’re going, not how you’re getting there.
