I've been to Germany a few times and know how to get about and whatnot. I bought this book because it focused on the cities and things to see in the cities - city by city and county by county. I really liked its focus on the architecture of Germany, which I love, and am glad I got it for this reason. You can travel almost anywhere in Germany and love it but it's my goal to see as many churches and cathedrals as possible because each has its own personality and is something to be remembered. It's really light on hotels and places to eat, but you can always find a B&B or hotel online prior - hotels in books are always pricey and I'm a cheap traveler. Ask locals where to eat for good, traditional German food because they'll point you in the right direction. If you want a book to tell you about hotels and restaurants, go with Rick Steves because that's a major focus for his books.
I gave it 4 stars because it is light on the travel aspect, but it's perfect for the experienced traveler who wants to see the history and monuments of Germany. Some of the pictures are pretty old and grainy, too.
Not only sites, suggestions and beautiful illustrations of what the country offers, but including amongst other subjects useful phrases, how to catch a train, detailed maps, and cultural and historical facts.
Even if you have no immediate plans for that 'German Adventure' this guide is ideal for armchair browsing and travelling.
Visions of Germany is a breathtaking and detailed bird's eye view of Bavaria and travelling along the River Rhine, two of Germany's most scenic and historic regions. Together with an informative and in depth commentary it has an evocative soundtrack of classical masterpieces by Beethoven, Wagner and Strauss, as well as traditional vocal and instrumental folk music.
From Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, to the journey down the River Rhine as it passes the ancient castles and picturesque scenery on land, this DVD brings two of Germany's regions alive, for those who have already visited and those seeing them for the first time from their arm chair.
and this guide answers a lot of questions with actual visuals and three-dimensial drawings that really help. Pick one up if you have
chance to see Germany.
I have great interest in fine art and based on what is illustrated in D&K Germany I've added the StaatsGalerie (in Stuttgart) to our upcoming trip to Germany.
