Explore the wonders of Germany
Germany is a nation saddled with an incredibly fractured past. Stepped deeply in Beethoven's fiery orchestration and Goethe's Faustian whirlwind, modern Germany must also contend with the legacy of xenophobia and genocide left be Hitler and the Third Reich. Even now, more than a decade after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germans are still fashioning a new identity for themselves. After centuries of war and fragmentation, Germany finds itself a wealthy nation at the forefront of both European and global politics. With cities like Frankfurt, its medieval castles, snow-covered mountainsand funky metropolises make Germany well worth a visit.
Berlin with a population of 3,400,000 inhabitants is the capital of Germany. Berlin's vibrant cultural scene has a lot to offer. There are countless places for shopping sprees - wickedly expensive temples of expenditure, flea markets, antique markets and many more. Berlin has over 170 museums that exhibits everything from the unique to the extraordinary.
The largest city in Germany, Hamburg, with a population of 1,700,000 inhabitants, radiates an inimitable recklessness. Hamburg is a haven for contemporary artists and intellectuals as well as party-goers who live it up in Germany's self-declared "capital of lust".
The capital and cultural center of Bavaria, Munich (pop. 1,228,000) is a sprawling, relatively liberal metropolis in the midst of conservative southern Germany. World-class museums, handsome parks and architecture, a rambunctious arts scene, and an urban population combine to create a city of astonishing vitality.
