From exploring big cities like Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt, to indulging in verdant wine valleys and forest-fringed river cruising along the Rhine, there’s so much to see and do in Germany. It’s a place where history, culture and delicious food and drink come together – particularly when the Christmas markets are in full swing – making it the perfect destination for a tailor-made holiday or weekend city break. However you want to get under the skin of this beautiful country, Flight Centre’s Travel Experts can help.

Where to Go in Germany
Start in the German capital of Berlin, where a compelling history is revealed at the site of the Berlin Wall and fascinating wartime architecture stretches across the city. Munich, Cologne and Frankfurt each offer an equally interesting city break (particularly during Oktoberfest) and, for a more laid-back experience, head for the countryside. Dramatic castles, rivers flanked by dense forests and vast wine country dominate here, and it's utterly blissful.

When to Go to Germany
Germany is a four seasons in one day kind of country, where it can be cold and windy in the morning, then turn warm and sunny as the day progresses. If you’re looking for consistent warmth, summer is the best time to visit, while spring and autumn offer more uncertainty temperature wise, but fewer crowds. Visit in November and December for the best Christmas markets (we love Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt) and hopefully a beautiful dusting of snow.
