Germany is a Western European country with a terrain of vast forests, rivers and mountain ranges, and 2 millennia of history. Berlin, its capital, is home to thriving art and nightlife scenes, iconic Brandenburg Gate and many sites relating to WWII. Munich is known for its Oktoberfest and cavernous beer halls, including 16th-century Hofbräuhaus. Frankfurt, with its skyscrapers, houses the European Central Bank.
The beautiful city of Dresden, the capital of the Eastern German state of Saxony was completed in 1743. However, 80% of Dresden’s historic centre was destroyed in WWII, but has been lovingly reconstructed to its former splendour, making it one of the cultural and architectural highlights of Germany.
