Prepare for a roller coaster of feasts, treats and temptations as you take in Germany's soul-stirring scenery, spirit-lifting culture, big-city beauties, romantic palaces and half-timbered towns.
Truth be told, I had to leave my home country of Germany to learn to love it. From my new perch in Los Angeles, I returned time and again, criss-crossing the land on my travels between the wind-caressed North Sea and the jagged Alpine peaks. I’ve cycled through romantic river valleys, sampled the best beer and wine, partied to techno till sunrise and stood in awe before sites that have shaped the course of history. After 15 years of discoveries, I could no longer resist the temptations of this gorgeous, complex and forever changing country, and decamped to Berlin for good. I haven’t looked back.
