A taste of old Europe in a shiny new package
Germany is a place that you might think you know--until you actually experience it for yourself. It's an unexpected and thrilling mix of old culture injected into gleaming, brand-new cities alongside old cities waking to modernity. The older generations store their beer steins at the local brauhaus, while the young people gyrate to pulsing techno in clubs with monosyllabic names. Super-fast luxury trains speed you past hulking Bavarian castles and ancient vineyards and into the bustling streets of perpetually evolving Berlin. The amazing Cologne Cathedral and the thriving art scene in Munich are much like those found throughout the rest of Europe. In the past, Germany was struggling to heal from the scars of two destructive wars and to reconcile with itself since its reunification, but today's emerging Germany is a fascinating place to visit, because in many ways, it is still discovering itself and its new identity in Europe. Come with an open mind and bear witness to the transformation as it happens all around you, right before your eyes.
