We went back to Germany and we noted in our agenda reasons that made us travel back to the country you love to hate. From the cool capital, Berlin, to the fairytale Black Forest, every attitude is a unique experience.
We do not know where we’re going, but we know where we come from, and none of us wants to go back there, were the words of a young Berlin, shortly after the fall of the Wall. Berlin is constantly changing. Brand new skyscrapers, trendy clubs, glittering boutiques and luxury hotels redefine Berlin as the most cool city in Europe. Construction of steel and glass rising above the streets where once there were only heaps of rubble and ruins while the parks and gardens are again lush. Even entire neighborhoods are changing the face. The once isolated in eastern Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg districts renewed and become the favorite neighborhood youth. New couples prefer to stay in the green streets and parks of Prenzlauer Berg Singles magnetized while the trendy bars and boutiques of the northern Mitte. New residents arrive continuously in Berlin thanks to the low rents, arts and entertainment, and with them they bring enthusiasm and new ideas.
The Bavarian Alps on the border with Austria are paradise for lovers of trekking and mountaineering. The area is just half an hour from Salzburg cosmopolitan and full of trails of all difficulty levels. Best of all, what lies around the frozen lake Königssee between towering mountains. And if you get tired, the cable car will give you the best view.
How do you imagine the perfect town to raise your children? Built in the valley, sunny and clean. With quiet streets, many without cars. With large, groomed parks with ponds, alleys, playgrounds. Maybe also a good university, one of the oldest in Europe for accuracy. This is the small Freiburg, the warmest city in Germany, bordering France and Switzerland. A modern but still human city on the outskirts of the Black Forest, in a valley watered by the Rhone.
The Imperial Palace was built in the 12th century was destroyed by 1689 by the French. In 1868 he was bought by the Berlin businessman Louis Fréderic Jacques Ravené and rebuilt in neo Gothic style. Plus belongs to Cochem, one of the most picturesque villages in the west of the country, just an hour outside Bonn.
