The world knows the “Land of Ideas” not just from its products “Made in Germany” but also as the “land of poets and thinkers” with a high standard of living. This includes a unique cultural range with a huge music and theatre scene. More than 20 million tourists travel to Germany every year – they wander around the capital Berlin, enjoy the unique cultural range with a huge music and theatre scene or experience the many-sided countryside. Berlin is the country's capital city. Germany has 14 national parks, 14 biosphere reserves and more than 90 nature parks. Mixed forests and mediaeval castles lie along the river valleys in the hills of central Germany, such as the Black Forest, a region that was once the joy of the German Romantic poets. Further south, the Alps rise up majestically with their crystal-clear mountain lakes and magic vistas. Ideal for winter, summer, spring and autumn visits. Northern Germany is dominated by moors, heaths, and a string of islands in the North Sea, such as Sylt, Borkum, Juist, Nordeney with high and wide-ranging sand dunes. While the Baltic Sea offers Rügen, Hiddensee and the world famous amber. Come and discover Germany as an exciting tourist destination.
