Germany is the home of high culture, fine art, classical music, world-class sports, award-winning cuisine--and some of the world's best beers. It's also one of the major economic and political powers of the European continent. One of the founding members of the European Union, Germany is a federation of 16 states. Each boasts its own distinct culture, art, cuisine, regional traditions, and array of things to do. The country is known worldwide for its precision engineering and high-tech products. Equally, though, Germany is admired for its old-world charm and what is locally known as gemutlichkeit (coziness). This is one of the easiest countries in the world to explore, offering an abundance of sightseeing opportunities. German transportation runs with German efficiency. Therefore, getting around the various regions is almost always easy, quick, and pleasant. Visit the cities to explore museums, art galleries, modern restaurants, and trendy shops.

Often in these off-the-beaten-path areas, the main tourist attraction remains the simple hospitality of the friendly locals.

Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Zoos
A land with a strong sense of tradition, Lower Saxony is the country's second largest state by area. It was created in 1946 out of a patchwork of bustling urban districts and quiet rural retreats. Most of its current territory once thrived as an independent kingdom. It was inhabited from about 1000 CE by Old Saxons (hence the name). Named somewhat confusingly, the area actually lies to the north of "Upper" Saxony. Lower Saxony boasts its own distinct character, complete with age-old culinary traditions, folk festivals, unusual local sports, and colorful ethnic costumes. Most of the region's major cities and economic hubs are in the urbanized central and southern sections, where much of the local tourism industry concentrates. The less-developed northeast remains the largest uncultivated area in the country. Large tracts of land designated as nature preserves are great for sightseeing tours of the outdoors. Don't miss a chance to vacation in the so-called Old Country: this bucolic land just south of the Elba River is noted for being one of the country’s largest fruit-farming districts.
