cologneAn incredible history and culture with nearly sixteen states each with its unique chronicles, makes Germany a wondrous place to visit.

Cologne is the oldest city in Germany, swiftly metamorphosing into the fine art capital of the country. Cologne has many splendid looking cities, historical monuments of significance, great tongue-teasing gastronomic delights and the Kolsch beer to sample. Cologne has the famed carnival, many open air concerts in Ringfest and the Tanzbrunnen where one can park oneself on the Rheinterasse and sample the fine music for free. One can also take a train trip down to the Museumsmeile located in Bonn for some great concerts. The quaint town of Bamberg is a charming place to visit.

The Baroque style architecture is quite pre-dominant in Dresden with the Baroquish manner dome of the Frauenkirch that is the biggest protestant building worldwide and the magnificent architecture of Altstadt and Neustadt forms.

Frankfurt, the consummate financial hub of the country, is great for day trips through the vivacious neighbourhoods dappled with several sidewalk cafes, lively street markets bursting with fresh produce and a host of festivals. One could feast out at one of the three guard towers, the Eschenheimer Turm  that are located left from the city defences from 1425. Prior to the war, Frankfurt had the second largest Jewish community in Germany that dated back to 1150, and has one of the largest and ancient Jewish burial grounds.
