Germany Vacation Guide
They've got the world's biggest beer festival, enough sausage varieties to keep you fed for as long as you like, and some truly spectacular countryside landscapes.

The cities aren't too bad either and whether you're strolling the quaint cobblestone streets of Freiburg, revisiting your fairytale fantasies at Neuschwanstein Castle, or partying the nights away at the latest clubs in Berlin, Hamburg, or Frankfurt, you will find a part of Germany that appeals to your preferred pace of life.

How to Save on Vacations to Germany
The key to cheap travel in Germany is booking in advance, especially if you are travelling here during the busy tourist periods for Oktoberfest or around Christmas. But if a last minute trip is all you can manage, then try to combine as many travel components as you can into one package deal. The more components you book together, the bigger your total discount.
Germany is well-known for its super-fast trains and efficient public transport. But this doesn't always come cheap. So if you're going to be doing a lot of inter-city travel, it is best to buy a rail pass or keep an eye out for special discounts for students, seniors, and children. Either one will save you quite a bit of money which you can then spend on more important things, like beer or some spiffy lederhosen.
The Germans are an outdoorsy lot and most visitors choose to visit Germany in the summertime, when you can join the locals on hiking trips, biking trails, swimming in public lakes, or relaxing with a giant mug of the house lager at the many beer gardens scattered around. Oktoberfest also draws in millions of tourists to Munich and the rest of Bavaria while winter sports enthusiasts make their way to the slopes from November to early-March.
To get the best deals on cheap vacations to Germany, plan your trip in the shoulder seasons from March to May or in November, when you will avoid most of the crowds and sky-high prices. If you're visiting in the winter, skip the weeks around Christmas and New Year's and you should be able to find a package deal to fit a tight budget.
