Your first thought for a holiday might not be Germany, and it wasn’t mine until the first time I visited the country. I was actually on a road trip with no fixed destination and even thought of driving straight through. But I’m so glad I didn’t.
I entered the country from the side of the Alps dropping into an area called the Black Forest, a beautiful place full of rolling woodland and lakes. I took full advantage of the stop off, enjoying this great place, putting on my walking boots and spending several days walking in the hills.
I travelled though the Bavarian region, making my way up to Frankfurt with the plan of getting to Berlin. Looking back, I think I could have spent a month here and still not discover the full extent of this beautiful part of Germany.
Frankfurt was such a contrast to the peace and quiet of the countryside. A modern city with impressive modern architecture mixed in with the old city. I really enjoyed the feel of this place, having something for everyone. A visit to the Römer Square is a real must.
My final destination was Berlin. I heard a lot about the city and it did not disappoint. If you are a fan of art, especially modern art and live music, this is the place to be. There was so much going on when I was there. So if you go, I definitely suggest you pace yourself.
