It’s easy to see what spurred the creators of Cinderella: enchanting, moody forests, colourful, medieval towns, exquisite palaces and unbelievable, hilltop castles. Between magical landscapes and a coastline hugging the North and Baltic seas, discover cities rich in history, culture and incredible cuisine.

DESTINATION FACTS

LANGUAGE

German

WHAT TO EAT

Sausages (type varies by region), Spätzle (egg-based noodles), potato-based sides like kartoffelsalat (potato salad), hearty meat dishes like sauerbraten (marinated roast beef) and Black Forest cake (actual German name: Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte).

WHAT TO BRING BACK

Authentic beer steins, traditional wooden Christmas pyramids, flavours of German Haribo gummy bears you can’t find at home, German beer and lebkuchen (heart-shaped gingerbread cookies with cute messages).

FUN FACT

You can thank Germans for a few things: cars, aspirin, toothpaste, X-ray technology, Adidas sneakers, kindergarten, the theory of relativity, Snow White, helicopters, MP3s and the printing press. Alternately, we’re not too sure about some of their less-inspiring inventions, like perms and the Kiwi-to-Go box (why?!).
