Is Germany Worth Visiting?

Germany, situated in Central Europe, boasts a rich tapestry of culture, history and natural beauty. Known for the Berlin Wall, fairy-tale castles along the Rhine river, the iconic cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest region, it also hosts the world-renowned Oktoberfest beer festival in Munich, attracting millions of visitors each year. From the bustling finance hub of Frankfurt to the ancient Roman structures in Trier to the modern artistic buzz of Berlin, Germany is a unique blend of the old and new. Characterized by dense forests, towering alps, sparkling lakes and bustling metropolitan cities with innovatively designed infrastructure, Germany archaeologically spans from the ancient times to the cutting-edge contemporary landmarks.

I've travelled a lot in my life, and felt welcomed at many places, but Germany is one of those places that make me feel welcomed the most. Of course, it is necessary to keep your common sense and be aware of strangers (because dangerous people are everywhere), but most of people you meet is very nice. As for the transportation, you can buy a monthly ticket called Deutschlandtricket. It costs €49 and applies on all types of public transport, except long-distance transport (ICE, EC or AG trains). It provides you of unlimited amount of travels, which can save you a lot of money! Food is of great quality (comparing to eastern Europe).

Safe, friendly people and clean..I really enjoyed travelling there.. I have a few different opinions. Firstly most are always amazed by the Sky Scrapers firstly. As I am very centrally located I can walk to town - the easy distance between areas by train. Westend to town just 1 stop. Each area has its own different appeal. Bergersstrasse is full of restaurants, clothing stores and just friendly people. Leipzigerstrasse very busy and popular street more for grocery shopping with organic stores, health shops and clothing stores, surrounded by different restaurants in the area as well. I think the food most surprises people. The dull greens and potatoes you think you will find on every corner surprisingly is filled with different experiences throughout the city, from amazing sushi, doner / falafel to indian, fresh and vegan. Germans are very into vegan. Most restaurants have at least one vegan meal on their menu. So food is a definite YES!!! Frankfurt is not your typical city in Europe as it was bombed during the war and most of those beautiful building are surrounded by newer versions so you don't feel like you walking down history lane, or the same feeling as you get in Paris by the architecture from before WWII.

I felt safe I recommend visiting not only one city Transport was easy to access, and the cities were walkable. I stayed in guest houses which were amazing, it felt like home at Lotte- The backpackers in Heidelberg. I am persco-vegetarian and it was easy for me to find options without meat. The overall trip was affordable.

I traveled alone to Germany and felt safe and comfortable. I walked by myself, got lost, and everyone was wonderful and helpful. I got lost in Munich at 3 in the morning, returning to my hotel from a food and beer tour, and I felt safer going back there than walking around many cities in my home country.

Local tips

I lived in Germany for 2 years. The country is super safe both during the day and at night. The best way to travel around the country is by DB train, FlixBus, or a shared car (Blablacar). Berlin is very busy, it's not dangerous, but be careful on the eastern side of the city in the evening.

About me

Hey, I'm Lilly (she/her), 20 years old and i’m studying German and French Literature in Bonn in Germany. Now I will be travelling around for around a month in Spain - and since I am a poor student and open minded at the same time I wanted to try this app to make new friends and maybe recieve a couch to sleep on for one night. :) I do a lot of things with friends, like going to concerts and festivals, but also spend a quiet day with good music (most likely indie alternative) and a book (probably something by Margarete Stokowski) at home. I speak a little little bit of spanish but french and english are fine for me as well. Exited to meet you!
