It might come to you as a surprise but yes, indeed Germany has more reasons to visit than just technology and the Trade Fair! A country with an area of 1/3rd of its landscape covered in woodlands, it is blessed with all kinds of terrain, the beaches, the mountains, the forests and the farmlands. In fact Germany is a traveller’s delight!
With majestically built fairy tale castles and thick black forests, the land is rich in its flora and fauna. (It might surprise you even more that the famous ‘Black Forest Pastry’ has actually originated from Germany!) There are almost 48000 species of animals reported in the wilderness and there are more than three hundred and fifty islands apart from the varied natural treasures that Germany can boast of.
There are fresh water rivers to swim and infinite hills to trek. The land is a hiker’s delight. Interestingly, Germany also has its own side of the Alps view, which is much unexplored and also much affordable. Cities like Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt are places that offer culture, modernity, landscapes and even celebrities from around the world!
Just imagine a land that is one third in woodlands apart from its scenic mountains, rivers and beaches how fresh and clean the air quality would be? I would rather think it to be carbon negative than neutral! And the icing on the cake is the rich cultural heritage that the country enjoys that is yet unexplored by many.
This year the German National Tourist Board is promoting its 800 years old famous Kreuzchor Choir from Dresden, an all boys’ choir that has been in service of the Church on Dresden Altmarkt Square, the Church of Holy Cross. For the last eight centuries the choir has captivated its audiences with its brilliantly performed pieces of the sacred music, the famous ones being the Christmas Oratorio or St. Matthew Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach. Imagine a choir with an unbroken tradition and generations of members participating to carry on the legacy, decades after decades!
The Museums and Cultural Centres offer the artistic kind a platter full of traditional stories and cultural activities. And then are the Vineyards! A wide variety of German wines are world famous and its wine festivals attract visitors from around the globe.
