Experience Your Best Germany Vacation

Germany offers visitors a taste of European culture unlike that found anywhere else in the world. Famous for its beers, sausages and rich heritage, the country entices travelers from abroad with gothic architecture and many historical landmarks.

Many of Germany's cities were rebuilt after World War II, but medieval buildings and evocative structures still stand tall in Berlin, Cologne and many other areas. Germany is home to many castles, some dating back to the 11th century. Many of these can be viewed on a cruise down the Rhine river, or as you drive along beside it. Festivals and events let visitors discover the many facets of German song and dance. Let Orbitz.com help you craft your plans for a trip to this iconic nation.

Best time to take a vacation to Germany

Temperatures in Germany range from winter lows of 5 degrees Fahrenheit to summer highs of 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Travelers can save money by booking hotels and flights during the colder winter and early spring months. The Oberbaumbrücke Festival in August brings out the best local artists and lets visitors participate in the creation of a giant collaborative painting, and Munich's famous Oktoberfest provides one of the best times to visit Germany. Beer and dancing are the order of the day at Oktoberfest. Catch these major events, and more, when you book with Orbitz.com.
