Description:   Germany is in Europe. It has to be one of the most written about countries on the planet as it was pivotal in world history over the past 100 years from WW1 and WW2 to the 1989 tearing down of the Berlin Wall that heralded that break up of communism in Eastern Europe and the end of the Cold War. Germany apart from its obvious historical significance has a great deal to offer everyone who visits here from the hustle and bustle of Berlin and Hamburg to chocolate box villages and castles (schloss) in rural areas.
 
Useful Links:   http://www.germany-tourism.de/ This is the official web site for the German Tourist Board. On the opening page, please select the language, which you would prefer. Very good site. http://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/diplo/en/WillkommeninD/EinreiseUndAufenthalt/StaatenlisteVisumpflicht.html Ok it is a bit of long link (the longest that we have come across) but the information contained is excellent. This is the direct link to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will take you directly to the visa section with one of the easiest tables we have come across explaining about the visa requirements for every country. One of our top 5 government visa sites.If you do need a visa you cna download the Schengen Visa from the same page .
