Deep in the heart of Europe, is reunited Germany - a country full of attractions.
Delightful countryside, towns and cities with an abundance of historic buildings
and art treasures, romantic monasteries and churches, places, castles, town walls,
gates and towers and a wide and varied range of relaxing leisure-time amenities.
In The North, along the shores of the North Sea and Baltic,
is a contrast between mile upon mile sandy beaches interposed with steep cliffs.
There are numerous offshore islands and beyond them countless inland lakes set
amidst the delightful undulating hills of Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
and Brandenburg. Here, too, are the city states of Bremen and Hamburg as well
as Berlin which, as the new capital of the Federal Republic, is now a greater
source of attraction than ever before.
the South of the North German Plain are the regions of medium-altitude mountains
- North Rhine-Westphalia, Hessen, Thuringia, Sachsen-Anhalt and Saxony. These
mountain which, together with the frequently deeply indented valleys of the great
rivers, from areas of superb scenic beauty, continue into the Rhineland-Palatinate,
the Saarland, Baden-Wurttemberg and Bavaria until, south of the Danube, comes
the series of lakes extending along the northern edge of the Alps from Lake Constance
in the west to the Chiemsee in the east and, beyond them, the Alpine peaks themselves,
marking Germany's southern limits.
The many cities are cultural centres where opera-houses,
concert halls, theatres, interesting museums and galleries rival the allurement
of elegant shops and the culinary delights to be enjoyed in the many different
types of restaurants. The hotel and catering trades in the western federal are
designed to meet the most exacting demands, and every effort is being made in
the new states in the east to equal this standard.
