Travel to Germany this winter

One of my hubby's favorite destinations is Germany, since he studied in the German speaking part of Switzerland and loves everything about the area. One summer he traveled through the countryside, visiting all the castles along the Rhine. The one area that I am especially keen on traveling to is Bavaria, since it is one of places that my parents spent some time when they were young, staying at several hotels in Germany and really enjoyed the amazing beauty of the area.

The best time to visit Germany is of course around Octoberfest, when everything revolves around beer, beer and more beer. Berlin is a great place to head to for getting a real view of the festive season and hotels in Berlin are hard to find unless you book well in advance. There are lots of last minute deals available at sites like, so it's a good place to head to if you want to make a last minute trip or one planned well in advance. Visiting Berlin means a trip to the Brandenburg Gates, the most famous symbol of the city, which was built in the late 1700s.

On the other hand, hotels in Munich are relatively easy to find, whether its luxury or budget accommodation that you're looking for. No matter when you go, Germany is a great destination. Winter is a magical time as well, especially if you go for the winter lights festival that is held in Berlin each year. The lights around the Brandenburg Gate are a sight to see as you'll see from the above picture.
