It was fantastic! We were very tired by Wednesday and ready to come home. Frankfurt was the most different of all the cities. I did see my birthplace, which is now the US Consulate's building. Took pictures on the sly. :)
Thanks again for everything!

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.

After a late-night flight across the Atlantic Ocean, and a quick stop off in Paris, France, embrace your weariness and relax the rest of the day in Berlin, Germany.
We suggest that a general guided group city tour on your first full day is a good way to understand the overall scope of the city. Hop on that bus, sip some coffee and listen to the stories!
Get ready for some castles! This short section of the Rhine River is known for its castles and lovely villages.
A quiet morning in Mainz followed by a short, early afternoon train ride to Frankfurt and your centrally located 4 star hotel. Life is tough!
