See the cities of Berlin and Munich for their very different but very unique cultural histories. Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, and Nuremberg also offer great things for travelers—like classic museums, castles, and the lovely German countryside.

60487 Frankfurt, Germany
My favorite area in Frankfurt is Bockenheim, northwest of the town center … of course, I’m completely biased as this was my old neighborhood. Home to Frankfurt's Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Bockenheim is vibrant and lively. The cafés,...

Olympischer Platz 3, 14053 Berlin, Germany
I've been fascinated with the Olympics since I watched the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Barcelona Summer Games and saw that archer and his flaming arrow light the Olympic flame. Prior to my trip to Europe, I'd never been to an Olympic stadium....

Marienplatz 1, 80331 München, Germany

Save Place
Binnen-Alster, 20354 Hamburg, Germany

This trendy boarding house, located in Rosenthaler Platz of Berlin-Mitte, has been meticulously designed to look and feel like a typical Berlin apartment. You might even miss the entrance to the building as it's hidden between a café and a...
