Hamburg - It’s the country’s largest port and commercial centre, and has been dubbed ‘the Gateway to the World’. Hamburg became a centre of international trade, dating back to the Middle Ages, and still remains one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. Hamburg also has a great musical scene, with many prominent composers either being born or played here, such as Brahms and Mahler. However, that has evolved into a fresh and modern musical vibe, with many festivals being held here to this day. Make sure to time your trip with a musical event, or frequent a live music bar in the city.
Cologne - There are also plenty of museums to get yourself lost in! Visit Cologne’s historic Old Town and get a sense of what it would have been like here 70 years prior, as three quarters of Cologne was destroyed in the war. Despite this, Cologne has bounced back and become one of Germany’s most popular tourist destinations.
Munich - Visit one of Munich’s hundreds of world class beer halls and get tipsy in one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Filled to the brim with museums and art galleries, so be sure to visit a few of these (if you’re not too hungover from the night before!) Munich has a beautifully rustic feel, you’ll find fairy lights douse the whole city in a warm glow, making the cold winter chill somewhat tolerable.
Berlin - With its melting pot of multiculturalism, and unique mix of modernity and traditionalism, Berlin truly is a ‘bucket list’ destination. Berlin has a vibrant and unforgiving nightlife, often called the city that never sleeps - forget about New York! Gorge yourself on German beer, or visit a bar for a divine cocktail, Berlin is your city! Take a stroll along the Berlin Wall and take in all the rich history this city has to offer, all of it readily accessible by foot or public transport.
Travel Risks in Germany
Petty thieves such as pickpockets and bag-snatchers often operate in built up areas of Germany, so be aware of your belongings at all time.
Travellers have also reported an increased number of 'drink spiking' in nightclubs and bars, women should be especially vigilant and never leave their drink unattended and out of sight. If you suspect you have been spiked, contact the emergency services immediately at 112, and 110 for police.
It is also recommended that travellers avoid political demonstrations and protests, as these have the possibility of turning violent.
