Germany (German: Deutschland) is a federal parliamentary republic in western-central Europe. The country’s capital and largest city is Berlin. Germany covers an area of 137,847 square miles and has a largely temperate seasonal climate. With 80.6 million inhabitants, it is the most populous member state in the European Union. Germany is the major economic and political power of the European continent and – it’s recent past aside - a historic leader in many cultural, theoretical and technical fields. While it might not be known as a major tourist destination, let Germany surprise you with its great cities, rich cultural life and lovely, lush landscapes.

This trip to Germany for D. and a good friend was somewhat complex and a challenge to orchestrate but it went very well and D. gave us a great review and some very valuable information about a hotel that we’ve used in the past but apparently is suffering a general decline in quality, as is, apparently, the neighborhood.
