Welcome to our page all things GERMANY, Germany is located in Europe between Austria, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Denmark and Poland. The capital city is Berlin but you have many large cities for your to explore. The language used here is German, however you will find that English is used by much of the population (excluding the older generation) due to having to learn the language from an early age through to when they leave in there late teens. Germany uses the currency the Euro (EUR €), you will find food prices vary across Germany being cheaper in the likes or Dortmund and more expensive in the busy banking city of Frankfurt.
Transport is pretty good in Germany, you have what is called the S-Bahn which is used in metropolitan areas, such as Berlin and Munich, have a system of suburban trains called the S-Bahn. They are faster and cover a wider area than buses or trams but tend to be less frequent. S-Bahn lines are often linked to the national rail network and sometimes connect urban centres. Rail passes are generally valid on these services. Specific S-Bahn lines are abbreviated with ‘S’ followed by the number (eg S1, S7).
You also have the AutoBahn which is incredible, the speed limit tends to be 130kph, however you have large stretches where it is limitless! Meaning you will feel like a snail going at 130kph when you have cars whizzing past at 200+kph. If you are driving though, if there is frost, snow, black ice and a couple other weather conditions it is a legal requirement to put snow/winter tyres on. Failure to do so will result in an on the spot fine by the police if spotted.
The best time of year to visit Germany. Well we visited in February and it was cold, you also had plenty of rain and even snow as far down as north as Dortmund and south as Frankfurt. You will find that the best months to try and avoid this weather is May through to August.
The major Airports include Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg.
