When to visit Germany?
The best time to visit is usually in the summer if you are looking for a hot holiday but expect more tourists during this time. If you're not a fan of weaving through crowds of people, the best time to visit in from March through May and from October to November. The weather may be colder during these months, but prices drop and so do the crowds!
How to get to Germany?
Since reunification in 1990, Germany has gained a higher profile and is now a popular tourist destination. Many UK airports fly directly to a variety of airports in Germany by mainstream airlines such as British Airways as well as on low-cost and charter airlines such as Ryanair, EasyJet and German Wings. Daily flights to Hamburg, Cologne, Dresden, Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin can be booked from the UK.
Travelling within Germany
Germany's rail system is extremely efficient and is operated almost entirely by Deutsche Bahn. Trainlines serve just about every corner of the country, as well as to nearby European cities. Tickets can be brought online, at the station or on board (although incur a surcharge). The country is well positioned in the heart of Europe, which means it is increasingly popular with Interrail passengers. One of the popular bordering countries is the Czech Republic, and some holiday apartments in the Czech Republic are only a short train ride away from some of Germany's major cities, including Dresden, which is less than one hour away.
Local Transport in Germany's cities and larger towns have efficient public transport systems providing a cheap and local way of getting around. Alternatively, if you wish to seek fresh air, the Germans love to cycle, so there are plenty of safe cycle lanes to use.
