Germany is one of Europe’s largest countries, and encompasses a wide variety of landscapes: the tall, sheer mountains of the south; the sandy, rolling plains of the north; the forested hills of the west; and the plains of the agricultural east. At the spiritual heart of the country is the magnificent capital city of Berlin, which rose from the ashes of World War II and the Rhine River, which flows northward from Switzerland.

Along its banks stand hundreds of medieval castles, churches, picturesque villages, market towns, and centres of learning and culture, including Heidelberg, the site of one of Europe’s oldest universities (founded in 1386) All are centrepieces of Germany’s thriving tourist economy, which brings millions of visitors to the country each year, drawn by its natural beauty, history, culture, and cuisine (including its renowned wines and beers).
