Take in Germany as fast as the Autobahn or as slow as a bike ride along the Rhine. Life is as traditional as a sing-along in a beer garden or as sophisticated as Berlin’s palaces and opera houses. Enjoy bratwurst, rotbier, and lebkuchen as you explore the wonders of Regensburg, one of Germany’s best-preserved medieval cities and a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Passau, the "City of Three Rivers"; and more.

There are no health precautions or requirements to enter Germany.
June-September are the best months to visit Germany when days are warm and nights are cool. It does rain during the summer, so take a jacket and an umbrella. If you like wildflowers, the months of April and May are gorgeous, but cool. Late fall and early winter can also be more moderate with southern winds keeping temps warmer in Bavaria.
Round up bills in restaurants and taxis, and give the tip directly to the waiter or driver.
