GERMANY: MUCH MORE THAN SAUERKRAUT, CUCKOO CLOCKS, OOMPAH BANDS AND BEER
That's not saying there's something wrong with any of those things: after all, every garage sale ought to have a cuckoo clock, and we love German beer; who wouldn't? But, like hot dogs and apple pie, these are merely clichéd symbols that fail to represent the diversity and culture of a great country. As a traveler, you're looking for the real Germany, not icons created by poster makers and ad men. Whether you travel frequently in Germany, or are planning a first visit, as your Germany travel headquarters, Gemut.com will help make your trip Germany, Austria & Switzerland the very best it can be.
For us, Germany travel is:
- Driving a rental car over a back road that twists, turns, rises and falls through intensely green, rolling farmland, broken only by dark forests and charming German villages.
- A hot meal at 185mph in the restaurant car of a German ICE train streaking from Munich to Hamburg.
- Finding a cozy room for €60 in a small, family-run hotel after a day's country driving. Much later, following a home-cooked dinner and a glass or two of local wine, served in the hotel's garden terrace, the quiet of the deep German night is broken only by the sound of crickets.
Gemut.com will help you find the "Real" Germany
Authentic Germany is also Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms; impossibly steep, terraced vineyards along the Mosel river as viewed from the observation deck of a riverboat; or being buffeted by fierce Atlantic winds while hiking the beach on Sylt, that sliver of an island in Germany's far north. Using the extensive travel resources of Gemut.com you can book hotels, river cruises, rental cars, sightseeing tours, and rail passes and tickets.
