A taste of old Europe in a shiny new package

Germany is a place that you might think you know--until you actually experience it for yourself. It's an unexpected and thrilling mix of old culture injected into gleaming, brand-new cities alongside old cities waking to modernity. The older generations store their beer steins at the local brauhaus, while the young people gyrate to pulsing techno in clubs with monosyllabic names. Super-fast luxury trains speed you past hulking Bavarian castles and ancient vineyards and into the bustling streets of perpetually evolving Berlin. The amazing Cologne Cathedral and the thriving art scene in Munich are much like those found throughout the rest of Europe. In the past, Germany was struggling to heal from the scars of two destructive wars and to reconcile with itself since its reunification, but today's emerging Germany is a fascinating place to visit, because in many ways, it is still discovering itself and its new identity in Europe. Come with an open mind and bear witness to the transformation as it happens all around you, right before your eyes.

  • I'm living in Berlin right now and I'm in love with the city! The seasons all have a different atmosphere, there is people from everywhere around the world, so you can do quite well just with English. But if you can speak German you get a whole different experience! I studied at, and they got a really nice cultural program to help you know the city, and really affordable price. If you are planning to stay in Berlin for a while, I highly recommend you to visit the school!Cheers

  • Germany - what a beautiful country with wonderfully friendly people. I especially love staying near to the B500 in the "Pension Williams," Seebach, in the Black Forest. No matter when I travel in Europe I always try to include Germany:-)

  • my home, but seriously, not all of us and especially not the majority of young people like techno!!! there are a million places to go and whether you like Rock, Pop or Folk you'll find a club or Pub to party in. And btw also not all of us wear lether shorts and drink beer all day. But our Beer truely is the best

  • TRAVEL ADVISORY! (AUGUGUST 18, 2010): STUTTGART Charges of corruption in Stuttgart in connection with the "Stuttgart 21" rail project have triggered massive demonstrations (and hopefully not worse!) in and around the main train station. Peaceful demonstrations such as a prayer have already been raided by the police. The police has indicated to crack down harder. This could escalate to instances in which police in riot gear are called and tear gas could be used to evict squatting protesters in and around the station! AVOID STUTTGART especially the MAIN TRAIN STATION.
