As the fourth largest economical and industrial leader country, Germany has many sights to be proud of. Let's start with the stunning capital Berlin. After the losses of World War II, the city was rebuilt and by today it is just as representative as it was once. The differences between the two parts of the country that were separated by the Berlin wall are disappearing. One of Berlin's symbols is the Brandenburg Gate that was built between 1788 and 1791. It is located in the western part of Unten den Linden and in the neighborhood of the Museum-island, the Reichstag, and the Berlin cathedral.
Munich, the capital of Bavaria and the October Fest is one of the friendliest cities in Germany. The historical center of the city is the old town, the Marienplatz (Maria Square). To the west there is a long path for pedestrians that leads up to the Karlsplatz (Charles's Square). Both squares offer several sights and attractions, in Marienplatz for example you can find the Munich City Museum, the Saint Peter Church, the Old-and also the New Town Hall. Bavaria is also the home of the world famous Neuschwanstein castle, which was built in the 19th century. The beautiful castle inspiring the Sleeping Beauty tale is a mixture of different architectural styles.
When spending some time in Germany, one must try the typical German dishes! Be prepared to find sausages, schnitzels, roasted pork wine and beer everywhere. If you wish to eat something sweet, you might try the Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest cake with cherries). On the list of beer consumption per capita Germany is the third, following the Czech Republic and Austria, so beers are also must-tries, and almost inevitable!
During Christmas time several German cities turn into tale-like places with the Christmas market on the main squares. Small wooden houses, with vendors selling small presents, Christmas ornaments and of course something to eat and to drink. The smell of the roasted and grilled meats mix with the sweet smell of mulled wine and other sweets, like caramel apple, or chocolate and fruits.
As many other European countries, Germany is also one that can be visited during the whole year, thanks to the countless sights and attractions that can be found there.
