Germany

Germany is synonymous with beer gardens, fairytale castles, medieval towns, and scenic rivers. With Globus, you’ll experience the magic of Germany—from its vibrant cities to the enchanting Black Forest. See the must-see sights, such as the Glockenspiel and Marienplatz in Munich, King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin, the infamous cathedral in Cologne, and Nuremberg’s Old Town. Cruise on the prettiest part of the Rhine River and travel the Romantic Road to visit the walled, medieval town of Rothenburg. Globus also takes you beyond the must-see sights and offers unique activities, such as an opportunity to enjoy a beer in the Cölner Hofbräu Früeh in Cologne and a stay at a family-owned hotel in the Black Forest, where you will learn about the cuckoo-clocks that make the area famous.

Some of our popular destinations in Germany

Berlin Berlin

Berlin has emerged triumphantly from its turbulent history as one of Europe’s most exciting, modern cities. You’ll visit East and West Berlin in the company of Local Specialists who’ll introduce you to a range of sights, from the Brandenburg Gate to the German State Opera House, the Reichstag building and Tiergarten park. And if you fancy shopping and entertainment there’s Kurfürstendamm. For 360° views of the city, we’ll also arrange priority access to the Berlin TV Tower – so you can see everything from over 200 feet high.

Black Forest black-forrest

With its evergreen forests, granite mountains and shadowy valleys, the unspoilt beauty of the Black Forest makes it a year-round destination. With us, you’ll be welcomed into the home of Alexander and Vivien Alborna von Laufenberg at their highland farm, which dates from 1562. After exploring their ancient barn, bakery, stable and chapel, and seeing how flour was ground in the old mill, you’ll dine on traditional German dishes. The forest is also famous for cuckoo clock-making so we’ll take you to a demonstration so you can learn how this ancient craft is carried out.
