Germany’s geographic location has established it as a European crossroads. As such, it is one of the leading economic and political powers within the European Union. Even now, Germany bears the traces of the post-war division of its capital. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, now an iconic monument. Book a stay at the Golden Tulip Hamburg hotel, it’s located in the centre of Berlin close to the famous Brandenburg Gate, a symbol of German unity and the scene of grand New Year’s Eve festivities each year. There’s plenty to see in Germany’s other major cities: historic Munich with its famous beer festival, and cultural Cologne, watched over by the towering Gothic spires of its cathedral. Stay in a Golden Tulip hotel in Frankfurt and visit the nearby Römerberg - this magnificent square with its jumble of pointed gables is the focal point of the old town. If you’re visiting Germany, take the opportunity to explore some of its beautiful landscapes and picturesque villages, and – of course – to taste some of its famous beer.
