Ahhh, Germany!

Home to historic castles, world-class cities, the Bavarian Alps, trains that run on time and, yes, bratwurst and beer, Germany is one of the best destinations to visit in Europe.

We have family in Germany (on George’s side), so we try to add a quick trip to Germany whenever we visit Europe.
