More About Germany

Located in Western Europe, this larger than life country is a very attractive tourist destination for several reasons. The great outdoors. The vintage architecture. The castles. The beer! Oktoberfest is an annual beer festival that is held in the region of Bavaria and is spread over twenty days (give or take a few). Accompanied by a travelling fair, Octoberfest is known to draw up to six million local and international visitors each year with several spin off festivals scattered across the globe.

Tainted with the history of The Holocaust and the two world wars, Germany is full of museums and monuments such as the Berlin Wall that stand as a staunch reminder to never allow history to repeat itself.  Sausages and different types of bread form a large part of the German diet.
