Germany has played an important part in European history, as is clearly shown by the thousands of museums, castles and other historic buildings that can be found throughout the country. After a division lasting almost 30 years, East and West Germany were reunited in 1989.
Berlin has much to offer, especially to those interested in culture and history, with its 150 theatres, 175 museums and magnificent buildings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
The city of Frankfurt is not only the financial centre of Germany and Europe, it also has a great deal to offer tourists.
Hamburg is a true cultural metropolis. It has over 30 theatres, 6 playhouses and 50 museums. It is therefore well worth a visit.
Munich has a great deal to offer people of all ages who are interested in history, art or architecture. One of the main attraction are the famous beer gardens.
Tourists from all over the world visit Hannover to see the sights of the capital of Lower Saxony.
