A GUIDE TO

TRAVELLING IN
Germany

Proud and practical, Germany is not a country to be forgotten when it comes to great people and great times. On your visit to a homestay in Germany you will experience a culture that is proud of its achievements and willing to share the best of its country with everyone as you travel from verdant countryside to living, breathing cityscapes.

What skills are in demand?

Languages will be your lesson to teach on your visit to Germany. French, Dutch, Danish, Spanish and English are all important languages to have since Germany is connected strongly to its European neighbours and helping your host practice will take up the most of your time tutoring them. Music lessons are also welcome, especially if you are trained in a Piano, Guitar, Violin or Music mixing owing to Germany’s storied musical culture. You can always be someone’s football or dancing mate too should your host like to practice.

Top 3 places to cambio:

Germany has plenty to visit when it comes to destinations. The historic and elegant cities lie in vast stretches of countryside forests, fields and mountains and provide a great backdrop for your homestay in Germany.

Berlin

One of the premier tourist destinations in Germany is of course its capital city. Berlin is highly regarded as a place to visit thanks to its poignant remembrance of its own history and the history of Europe. That isn’t its only charm as it has plenty of modern cultural attractions for you such as a trendy shopping districts, clean and appealing streets, a burgeoning night scene, magnificent buildings and a generally bustling atmosphere. Some of the many attractions include the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate, The Holocaust Memorial and Museum Island.

Munich, Leipzig and Dresden

Much like Berlin, these three Eastern cities offer a mix of history and modern sensibility. Munich offers trips to see the Deutsches Museum, the pleasant Viktualienmarkt Square and the Marienplatz palace. Leipzig is a commercial city with a pleasant University community as well as a love of Opera and Classical Music. Finally Dresden is a grand medieval town known for its great cathedrals, museums gardens and baroque style buildings.

Castles

Germany’s greatest buildings aren’t reserved to its cities. Some of the finest castles built throughout the world can be found in the German countryside and many of them seem to defy the laws of gravity. Grosse-Neuschwanstein is built in the Bavarian Hills, Lichtenstein castle on a cliff in Württemberg, Stolzenfels castle overlooking Koblenz, The Castle of Heidelberg which is famous for being destroyed and rebuilt several times in history, twice after a lightning bolt had struck it. Castle Hornberg in the Neckar Valley and Rheinfels Castle in St. Goar’s are both partially restored and house museums and hospitality.

Top 3 Things to do on cambio:

Germany is, like many continental European countries, a brilliant place for hiking, cycling and camping. It also has a good range of activities to do for all ranges of interests and people.

Take a spin on the Nürburgring

A world famous race track situated near the village of Nürburg in the far West of Germany. The Nurburgring is a favourite of professional and amateur racers alike. Racing events take place throughout the year, but the track is also open to members of the public who wish to test out their machine of choice in a racing environment. The ring also has professional drivers offer “taxi rides” for a lap of the 20 km route.

Explore The Black Forest and Mountains

Despite the foreboding name, the Black Forest is actually a rather pleasant if massive wooded area in Germany’s southwest border. It is visited not only for its forested areas but also for the many lakes, rivers, valleys and mountains lying inside it. The lakes and Rivers offer tonnes of water sporting activities to try out including diving and boating, while in the mountains you can try your hand at a bit of skiing, hiking or camping. The Forest even includes many secluded monasteries, churches and the occasional village within its borders. Definitely not a place you want to miss.

Visit Europa Park

Germany also likes to think big when it comes to amusement parks. Europa park, located in Rust in the Southwest, is Germany’s largest theme park and the second most visited European park after Disneyland in Paris. As well as housing 12 rollercoasters, the park also includes a forested area, districts based on countries from around Europe, a Viking themed area and is also the venue for the annual Euro-Dance Festival.
