After the fall of the Berlin wall, Germany’s popularity with travelers has grown exponentially. In 1961, German police began the construction of the Berlin wall, dividing the nation into East and West Germany. After a peaceful demonstration of almost 70,000 people, the wall was taken down, reuniting the two halves of the country. This division resulted in the different styles and tastes that emerged from either side of the wall, creating a diverse and rich cultural experience with each region.
History immediately hits the eyes with each town you come across as the county’s diverse culture spills into the buildings and homes across the nation reflecting architectural creations from old world Baroque, Romanesque and Gothic designs to modern architectural feats that combine functionality and design. Scenic landscapes of coastal roads, forests and valleys are dusted with sleepy towns that welcome visitors to their occasional festivals and part take in the community’s customs and traditions.
