Regional Germany

A Land of Rich Traditions

Explore Germany's diverse regions to uncover a land rich in history, castles, culture, imposing forests and plenty of good beer and fine wine.

Cologne is famous for its Kolsch beer and has more breweries than anywhere else in Germany. Clear, light and highly fermented, Kolsch has an aromatic, bitter taste. For a local sample, wrap your tastebuds around the famous Numberger Bratwurst, a slim pork sausage, which has become something of a culinary masterpiece in Numberg, best tasted at one of the many specialty restaurants in town.

A cultural and vivacious metropolis, Stuttgart is spread across a variety of hills, valleys and parks where visitors can amble the pedestrianised Konigstrasse or visit one of the many museums, sights or art galleries on offer. For the car enthusiast visit the Porsche Museum.
