Travel Germany - Expect More...

The Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland) is a federation of 16 states and one of the world's leading industrialized countries, located in the middle of the European Union. Germany is bordered to the north by the North Sea, Denmark and the Baltic Sea, to its east by Poland and the Czech Republic, to the south by Austria and Switzerland and to its west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The current population of Germany is over 80 million, primarily German residents and about 7 million foreign residents, the largest single nationality group of whom are Turkish. Germany has been a prime destination for refugees from many developing countries, in part because its constitution long had a clause giving a 'right' to political asylum, but restrictions over the years have made it less attractive. 

Germany has one of the world's highest levels of education, technological development, and economic productivity. Germany is a broadly middle class society with a per capita income level of about $25,000. A generous social welfare system provides for universal health care, unemployment compensation, and other social needs. Germans also are very mobile; millions travel abroad each year.

With unification on October 3, 1990, Germany began the major task of bringing the standard of living of Germans in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) up to that of western Germany. This will be a lengthy and difficult process due to the relative inefficiency of industrial enterprises in the former GDR, difficulties in resolving property ownership in eastern Germany, and the inadequate infrastructure and environmental damage that resulted from decades of communist rule. Since reunification, hundreds of thousands of former East Germans have migrated into western Germany to find work.

The weather in Germany is sometimes unpredictable. In the middle of summer it could be warm and sunny one day and then cold and rainy the next. However truly extreme weather conditions, like severe droughts, tornados, destructive hailstorms, severe frost or heat etc. are all extremely rare. There have been two bad large-scale floodings in the last few years, but in the long term those are also quite rare. Damaging earthquakes are unheard-of.

Germany's contributions to the world's cultural heritage are numerous, and the country is often known as das Land der Dichter und Denker (The Land of Poets and Thinkers). Germany was the birthplace of composers such as Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Schumann and Wagner; poets such as Goethe and Schiller as well as Heine; philosophers including Kant, Hegel, Marx and Nietzsche, theologians like Luther and Bonhoeffer, authors including Hermann Hesse and Grass; scientists including Einstein, Born, Planck, Heisenberg, Hertz and Bunsen; and engineers such as Otto, Daimler, Benz, Diesel and Linde. There are also numerous fine artists from Germany such as the Renaissance artist Max Ernst, the expressionist Franz Marc, the conceptual artist Joseph Beuys or the neo expressionist Georg Baselitz.

Cologne Germany -  Cologne (German: Köln) is Germany's fourth-largest city (after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich), and is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants.

Travel Germany - Tourism in Germany has improved since the end of World War II and many tourists visit Germany to experience a sense of European history. The countryside exhibits a pastoral aura, while its cities exhibit both a modern and classical feel.
