Individual travels to Germany


Germany is synonymous with beer gardens, fairytale castles, medieval towns, and scenic rivers. With Globus, you'll experience the magic of Germany—from its vibrant cities to the enchanting Black Forest.

See the must-see sights, such as the Glockenspiel and Marienplatz in Munich, King Ludwig's Neuschwanstein Castle, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin, the infamous cathedral in Cologne, and Nuremberg's Old Town

Cruise on the prettiest part of the Rhine River and travel the Romantic Road to visit the walled, medieval town of Rothenburg. Globus also takes you beyond the must-see sights and offers unique activities, such as an opportunity to enjoy a beer in the Cölner Hofbräu Früeh in Cologne and a stay at a family-owned hotel in the Black Forest, where you will learn about the cuckoo-clocks that make the area famous.

Berlin is one of our personal favorite cities to promote and discover. With its rich and dramatic history and fascinating links to British history it is one of these places which you feel you have already somehow been to before arriving. Berlin never ceases to surprise and impress. Architecturally the place is a complete hotch potch. Bombed to the ground in WW2 the city is no UNESCO heritage site but the buildings which have survived are of course of great interest and beauty. However it is the liberal attitude of the German government to let designers run riot on spaces and buildings that truly gives modern day Berlin its identity. Design hotels, water side clubs, restaurants underneath railway arches and outdoor beech bars in summer are just a few examples of the unconventional projects which make up this great city.
The natural habitat of well-heeled power dressers and lederhosen-clad thigh-slappers, Mediterranean-style street cafes and Mitteleuropa beer halls, high-brow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s second city is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine cliches, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis sure has many an unexpected card down its Dirndl. Statistics show Munich is enticing more visitors than ever, especially in summer and during Oktoberfest. Munich’s walkable centre retains a small-town air but holds some world-class sights, especially its art galleries and museums. Throw in a king’s ransom of royal Bavarian heritage, an entire suburb of Olympic legacy and a kitbag of dark tourism and you can see why it's such a favourite among those who seek out the past, but like to hit the town once they’re done.
Take a flight to Frankfurt, a contemporary European city, symbol of affluence and economic power, with centuries of history and a cosmopolitan identity. Dynamic and sophisticated, Frankfurt is a thrilling city of contrasts.
Fly with Mazi Travel to Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, the cosmopolitan metropolis of the German North with the long maritime history, the magnificent architecture and the verdant nature. Sophisticated and alternative, extrovert and elitist, the Hanseatic harbour-city on the waters of Elbe and Alster is a fascinating mix of contrasts.
Cologne (Koln) offers seemingly endless attractions, led by its famous cathedral whose filigree twin spires dominate the skyline. It’s regularly voted the country’s single most popular tourist attraction. The city’s museum landscape is especially strong when it comes to art but also has something in store for fans of chocolate, sports and even Roman history.
Surrounded by forest 93km south of Frankfurt, Germany’s oldest and most famous university town is renowned for its baroque Altstadt, spirited student atmosphere, beautiful riverside setting and evocative half-ruined hilltop castle, which draw 11.8 million visitors a year.
Built on the magnificent valley of Elbe river, the capital of Saxony is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. A symbol of the Ally bombings of 1945, the historical centre (Altstadt) of the city was reborn from its ashes by an amazing restoration program and nowadays the grand spiritual glamour of 18th century Dresden,
Dusseldorf dazzles with boundary-pushing architecture, zinging nightlife and an art scene to rival many higher-profile cities. It’s a posh and modern city that seems all buttoned-up business at first glance: banking, advertising, fashion and telecommunications are among the fields that have made North Rhine–Westphalia's capital one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. Yet all it takes is a few hours of bar-hopping around the Altstadt, the historical quarter along the Rhine, to realise that locals have no problem letting their hair down once they shed those Armani jackets. The Altstadt may claim to be the ‘longest bar in the world’ but some attention has strayed to Medienhafen, a redeveloped harbour area and a feast of international avant-garde architecture. Older neighbourhoods are also changing. Case in point: Flingern, which has gone from drab to fab in recent years and is has a multifaceted arty boho scene. Highbrow types, meanwhile, can get more than their fill at the city’s many world-class art museums and cultural institutions.
Ask many Germans their opinion of Stuttgarters and they will go off on a tangent: they are road hogs, speeding along the autobahn; they are sharp-dressed executives with a Swabian drawl;
Hypezig! cry the papers, The New Berlin, says just about everybody. Yes, Leipzig is Saxony's coolest city, a playground for nomadic young creatives who have been displaced even by the fast-gentrifying German capital, but it's also a city of enormous history, a trade-fair mecca and solidly in the sights of music lovers due to its intrinsic connection to the lives and work of Bach, Mendelssohn and Wagner.
Nuremberg (Nurnberg), Bavaria’s second-largest city and the unofficial capital of Franconia, is an energetic place where the nightlife is intense and the beer is as dark as coffee. As one of Bavaria’s biggest draws it is alive with visitors year-round, but especially during the spectacular Christmas market.
Bremen, one of Gemany’s three city states (along with Berlin and Hamburg), has a justified reputation for being among the country’s most outward-looking and hospitable places, with a population that strikes a good balance between style, earthiness and good living.
Football (soccer) is a major Dortmund passion. Borussia Dortmund, the city’s Bundesliga (Germany’s first league) team, has been national champion a ridiculous eight times, including the 2011–12 season and runners-up 2013-14. So it's appropriate that the city is home to the new German Football Museum.
When this relaxed city on the Rhine became West Germany’s ‘temporary’ capital in 1949 it surprised many, including its own residents. When in 1991 a reunited German government decided to move to Berlin, it shocked many, especially its own residents.
Surrounded by factories and heavy-industry plants, Mannheim, situated between the Rhine and Neckar Rivers, near their confluence, isn’t Germany at its prettiest. Industrial giants based here include Daimler (automotive),
Nestled at the foot of the Black Forest in South Germany, Baden-Baden is a chic destination for those who fancy a dip in its famous salt- and radon-rich thermal hot springs.
