Rhenish zest for life in the shadow of the cathedral

Founded by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, Cologne is Germany's second oldest city. The city marked the northern boundary of the Roman Empire and was therefore of great strategic and military importance to the Romans.

For many centuries now it has been a leading trading and trans­porta­tion hub due to its loca­tion along the Rhine River. Cologne became one of the focal points of Western culture during the Middle Ages when, under the rule of Friedrich II, the relics of the Three Wise Men were brought to Cologne in 1164 after being captured from Milan. Cologne Cathedral, one of the most magnif­i­cent struc­tures north of the Alps, was built to house these relics, although construc­tion wasn't completed until 600 years later. Today the landmark is the emblem of Cologne and is also a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. The old town facing the Rhine together with the city boasting 12 Roma­nesque churches among its numerous other histor­ical sites creates a unique ensemble and Cologne is also known as the center of the German Mardi Gras cele­bra­tions that peak during the carnival period.

Accommodation: An Old Town Hotel in Cologne

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast | 1x Culture Tax

In the heart of Cologne's Old Town, just minutes from the Cathedral, the Rhine River and the main shopping streets and as part of one of Cologne's oldest family brew­eries, this hotel is a very special address.

The 37 rooms are modern and well designed – some with Cathedral views and their own beer on tap. The brewery has lots of char­acter with the Köbesse (tradi­tion­ally rude waiting staff) serving authentic Cologne cuisine and amazing views of the Dom and the City. One of Cologne's best known bands – Die Höhner – shows off memora­bilia of 40 years of band history over two floors.

Old town

Medieval alleys and brew­eries in the shadow of the cathedral
The old town south of the cathedral has quite a high Kölsch brewery density, medieval alleys and the historic Cologne town hall. Nearby is the fragrance museum in the Farina House, which is inexorably linked to the famous perfume “Eau de Cologne”. The Italian perfumer Johann Maria Farina created the scent that reminded him of oranges, lemons, grapefruit and berg­amot, cedrat, the flowers and herbs of his home­land. The reopened “Dufthaus 4711” awaits you in Glockengasse, with a fountain from which Kölnisch Wasser bubbles.


Gastronomy and culture in the former harbour
The former port of Cologne is today a modern city district with apart­ments, gastronomy and culture. Next to the old build­ings such as the harbor office, the crane houses were built, which tower over the harbor like over­sized cranes. There are also two extraor­d­inary museums: the Sports and Olympic Museum displays exhibits from 3000 years of sports history. Right next door is the Choco­late Museum. During their tour, visitors follow the path of cocoa from the planta­tion to the choco­late factory. The three meter high choco­late fountain may whet the appetite for more.

Museums at the Cathedral

Roman times and modern art
The Roman-Germanic Museum shows archae­o­log­ical finds from the times of the ancient Rome. Among the most important exhibits are the Dyon­isos mosaic from the dining room of a Roman villa and the tomb of veteran Lucius Poblicius. Both can be seen from the square in front of the cathedral through a glass pane. The Ludwig Munic­ipal Museum contains the Ludwig couple's collec­tion, which has attracted worldwide atten­tion. Art objects of the 20th century are on display – from Picasso to Roy Licht­enstein and Gerhard Richter.

From Cologne to Hamburg by rail

430 km – 4 hours

North of Cologne you will pass through the Ruhr Valley, Germany's indus­trial centre during the 19th and 20th centuries. You will then cross the state of Lower Saxony, whose southern hills increas­ingly give way to plains as you progress northward. Hamburg is located at the southern tip of the Jutland Peninsula, which connects Germany with Denmark.

Germany's gateway to the world

Germany's second largest city and principal port started out as a castle called Hammaburg which was built by Emperor Charle­magne in 808 AD as a defence against Slavic invaders.

Hamburg was offi­cially granted the status of “Impe­rial Free City” by Fred­erick I (Barbarossa) in 1189. Its loca­tion close to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea soon made the northern outpost one of Europe's leading ports. Hamburg's rise to promi­nence was sealed by its trade alliance with Lübeck in 1241, which marked the origin of the Hanseatic League, a powerful union of trading guilds that maintained a stronghold on trade in most of northern Europe for over 400 years. Hamburg cont­inues to culti­vate this link to its glorious past even today, often refer­ring to itself, like Lübeck and Bremen, as a “Free and Hansa City”. It is the second wealth­iest metropolis in the EU after London and a leading media, indus­trial, commer­cial and cultural centre.

Accommodation: A City Hotel near Alster Lake

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast

The hotel is located in Hamburg's centre, near to Mönckebergs­traße, the tradi­tional Kontor office quarter, the central station and Rathaus­markt and not far from the Alster Lake and Hafen-City.

The former Kontor building doesn't just accommo­date a quirky, cool hotel, but also a tempo­rary home for everyone enjoying urban life. The 65 rooms and studios reflect design and true hospitality in a cosmopol­itan atmo­sphere. A decent Breakfast is served in the Kontorkitchen or in the lounge.


More than just a red light district
The Reep­schläger once made ship's cables and ropes here, for which they needed a long, straight track. Today, the almost one kilometre long stretch is Germany's most famous red light district, where nightclubs, bars and discos alternate with each other. These include Café Keese, the window­less pub “Zur Ritze” with its own boxing cellar, fast food and leisure clubs with billiard and table football. For the Beatles their world career began near the Reeperbahn, where they performed in the “Star-Club”, “Kais­erkeller”, “Top Ten Club” and in the “Indra”.

Ware­house district

Largest ware­house complex in the world
The historic ware­house complex in Hamburg harbour is the largest of its kind in the world. The Speich­er­stadt was built between 1883 and 1927 south of the old town on the former Elbe islands and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ware­houses in neo-Gothic brick archi­tec­ture are founded on thou­sands of oak piles and are connected to the water on one side and to the road on the other. Mostly coffee, tea and spices were stored on five “floors” one above the other. Today there are carpet traders, agencies and museums here, including the Speich­er­stadt Museum, the Customs Museum and the Spice Museum. The largest model railway in the world, the Miniatur Wunder­land, is also housed here.

Main Church St. Michael's

Concert programme in a baroque church flooded with light
The Michel, as the church is called by the Hamburgers, is consid­ered the most important baroque church in northern Germany. It is dedicated to the archangel Michael, who victo­ri­ously defeats Satan as depicted by a large bronze statue over the main portal. The 52 meter long and almost as wide church room holds 2,500 visitors and is flooded with light because the clear windows allow the outside light to pass through. The front rows of benches are partic­u­larly ornate and intended for the Senate at ceremonies or funerals. The church has no less than five organs. Concerts take place almost daily.

From Hamburg to Berlin by rail

290 km – 1 hour 45 minutes

During the latter half of the journey you will traverse Bran­denburg, an ancient German state that was re-estab­lished after reuni­fica­tion in 1990. Bordered by the Elbe River to the west and the Oder River to the east, Bran­denburg is known for its intact natural envi­ron­ment and its many protected areas. The state surrounds – but does not include – the nation's capital.

Tickets will not be booked by Umfu­lana. You can book them online on www.raileu­ or on arrival at the station.



Germany's hip capital

Unlike other Euro­pean capitals, Berlin is a young city that only grew in importance with the rise of Prussia to a Euro­pean power­house in 1815.

Yet there is hardly a city that affected – and was affected by – 20th century history more than Berlin. After the peaceful reuni­fica­tion Berlin became a world city of culture, politics, media and science. In the 21st century the city has become a magnet for entrepreneurs, crea­tive people and immigrants. Berlin’s archi­tec­ture, festivals, nightlife and crea­tive alterna­tive scenes attract millions of visitors to the city.

Accommodation: A turn-of-the-century residence

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast

The hotel is a tremendous value in the heart of Berlin. Its loca­tion on a quiet, tree-lined street just off the Kurfürs­tendamm couldn't be better.

The five-story building, built around 1900 as a private resi­dence, has a nostalgic, old-fash­ioned look with ornate designs on its cream-coloured facade, tall windows, romantic balconies edged with flowerboxes, and a large tree shading the entrance. You step inside to a hallway with a black-and-white marble floor, mirrored walls, and a vaulted ceiling. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished in a tradi­tional style with dark wooden furni­ture, pastel-coloured fabrics and lace curtains. Many of the rooms face onto the quiet court­yard.


Memo­rial for the resistance against Hitler
During the National Socialist era, the building at Bendler­s­trasse 11-13 was the seat of the General Army Office. There was the centre of resistance against Hitler within the Wehrmacht (armed forces). The attack carried out by Colonel Graf von Stauffenberg in the Wolfss­chanze on 20 July 1944 was planned and orga­nized here.
The perma­nent exhi­bi­tion Memo­rial to the German Resistance in some of the former offices commem­o­rate the resistance fight­er­s and the memo­rial in the court­yard  reminds of the offi­cers executed there.

Bran­denburg Gate

Symbol of Berlin
Using the Bran­denburg Gate as an example it is possible to illus­trate the city's history: Built in 1791 the gate was designed with the Quadriga as Triumphal Arch through which the glorious Prus­sian soldiers were to march into the city. When Napoleon defeated Prussia a few years later, the Quadriga was deported to Paris and returned only in the wars of liber­a­tion. Ever since that time it was consid­ered a monu­ment with national symbolism. On 30 January 1933 after the seizure of power, the Nazis staged an eerie torch­light proces­sion through the gate. Twelve years later the heavily damaged bombed gate became the sector boundary between the eastern and western parts of a city that was lying in ruins. The walled gate also became the symbol of the walled city and the front of the iron curtain that divided Europe from the Baltic Sea all the way to the Mediterranean. Thus, the Cold War ended logically on 9 November 1989, with a cheerful spectacle and cele­bra­tion on the Wall at Bran­denburg Gate.

Jewish museum Berlin

Largest Jewish museum in Europe
The largest Jewish museum in Europe offers a perma­nent exhi­bi­tion with an overview of two millennia of German-Jewish history – depicting highs and lows of the rela­tion­ships between Jews and non-Jews in Germany. In addi­tion, there are several tempo­rary and changing exhi­bi­tions each year. Even the building in itself is worth a visit. The baroque Kollegien­haus was symbolically extended in 1999 after a design by Daniel Libe­skind with a zigzag-shaped building and a tita­nium facade.

From Berlin to Dresden by rail

200 km – 2 hours 10 minutes

Resurrected from ruins

The polit­ical and cultural capital of Saxony has an eventful history. Although already mentioned in 1206, it was largely insig­nif­icant until the 15th century.

After it survived the 30-year war, it burned to the ground in 1685. The city of the Saxon Elector was then rebuilt in glorious fashion and given a uniform baroque townscape which earned her the name “Florence of the North”. In February 1945 the hitherto scarcely damaged city was razed to the ground in one night by a devastating bomb attack. For decades the ruins of the Frauenkirche were a memo­rial to the horrors of war. The glorious resto­ra­tion of the Frauenkirche in 2005 unleashed the ambi­tion of the city to reconnect with its former splendor and beauty before the 2nd World War. The old town between the Zwinger (palace) and Kreuzkirche (Church of the Holy Cross) has been restored to its former glory and many other sites in the city are being rebuilt.

Accommodation: A townhouse near the Frauenkirche

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast | 1x Parking Garage

Behind its impres­sive Baroque façade this small luxury hotel is an elegant retreat in the heart of the city. It offers a gourmet restau­rant, impeccable service and a stunning spa over­looking the rooftops of Dresden.

Remi­nis­cent of a 19th century palace, the décor is dist­inctly regal. The comfort­able Bied­ermeier-style bedrooms and suites are furnished with clas­sical furni­ture. The city centre is at your doorstep: the Resi­den­zschloss, the Saxon State Opera and the new market (Neumarkt) are all within easy walking distance. After a busy day of sightseeing, guests can treat them­selves to a gourmet dinner on the restau­rant terrace with breathtaking views of the famous Church of Our Lady.


Raised bogs and traces of medieval mining
The low mountain range lies between Saxony and Bohemia. The border between Germany and the Czech Republic runs just north of the ridge line. The highest peaks are Klínovec (1244 m) and Fichtelberg (1215 m). The Erzgebirge was settled in the Middle Ages and has since been char­ac­terised by mining. Dumps, dams and ditches char­ac­terise the landscape and habi­tats. Today the Erzgebirge is a popular hiking area with winter sports resorts in the higher alti­tudes. The higher sites on the German side belong to the Erzgebirge/Vogt­land Nature Park. With a length of 120 kilome­tres it is the largest nature park in Germany. The eastern Erzgebirge is under protec­tion as landscape conser­va­tion area Osterzgebirge. Several larger raised bogs fed only by rainwater have also formed on the ridges.

Saxon Switz­er­land National Park

Dramatic Elbe Sand­stone Mountains
The almost 100 square kilometre national park 30 kilome­tres south­east of Dresden protects the German part of the Elbe Sand­stone Mountains, into which the Elbe has dug a deep canyon. The landscape on both sides of the river is dramatic: Table mountains like the Lilienstein and the Pfaffenstein alternate with rockfalls like the Bastei and the Schrammsteine. Already at the end of the 18th century the unique nature attracted painters and poets. The best known was the painting by Caspar David Friedrich “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog”. The national park comprises two sepa­rate areas: the western part lies between Wehlen and Prossen, the eastern part lies between Schrammsteinen and the Czech border.

Frauenkirche and Neumarkt

Of splendor and destruc­tion
The heart and tourist magnet of Dresden is the rebuilt Frauenkirche in the centre of the old town. The monu­mental Protestant church building is the old and new landmark of the city. Built between 1726 and 1743, destroyed on 13 and 14 February 1945, it has been rebuilt since the 1990s with the help of a large amount of dona­tions. In 2005 the new conse­cra­tion took place.
Also the place at the church, the Neumarkt, was recon­structed. After the Second World War, the most important inner-city square next to the Altmarkt with the symbolic ruins of the Frauenkirche remained almost untouched for half a century. Then a lively building activity set in, quarter by quarter the typical baroque gabled houses were rebuilt.

Schrammstein views and Hohe Liebe

Pheno­m­enal views, wild romantic gorges, fairy­tale houses
The medium intensity hike leads from Bad Schandau to the Schrammsteine and on to Hohe Liebe. After climbing the stairs through the Schrammtor, you will find dream­like views, wildly romantic gorges, natural monu­ments and fairy­tale houses. There is an inn on the way in the Schrammsteinbaude. (round trip: 14.9 kilome­ters, 4:30 hours, up and down: 440 meters)

From Dresden to Munich by rail

560 km/approx. 5:50 hours

Trav­elling southwest through Saxony, you will pass along a low mountain range on your left called the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains), which forms the border between Germany and the Czech Republic. The city named Chemnitz was called Karl-Marx-Stadt during the GDR era but quickly reassumed its old name after reuni­fica­tion in 1990. You will cross the now invis­ible border between West and East Germany near Hof. A change of trains is required at Nurem­berg.

Tech, art and folklore

Although it is still a rela­tively young city, Munich’s charisma extends far beyond the Bavarian borders. Around the 11th century a few monks settled on the Isar – hence the name (apud Munichen – with the monks).

Because of its strategic loca­tion at a bridge and also at the inter­sec­tion of two trade routes, the city soon became the resi­dence of the Wittelsbach family who reigned as dukes, electors and kings of Bavaria. The city expe­r­i­enced a boom in the Baroque era and finally also in the 20th century. Munich became the capital of Art Nouveau – but also of the National Socialist move­ment. In 1919 Hitler already tested the demonic effect of his speeches in the Hofbräukeller. Although Munich is a high-tech loca­tion today, the Bavarian folklore is lovingly cared for, espe­cially in the last week of September when the Okto­berfest beer festival takes place.

Accommodation: A downtown hotel next to the Hofbräuhaus

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast

The 4-star hotel with an authentic Bavarian ambi­ence is just a few steps from the famous Hofbräuhaus in the very heart of Munich.

In addi­tion to spacious, modern bedrooms with indi­vid­u­ally adjustable air-condi­tioning, the prop­erty features an award-winning restau­rant, a cosy bar and spa/fitness facil­i­ties. An espe­cially popular feature is the lavish Breakfast buffet. All major sites in the Munich Old Town are within easy walking distance.


Munich's pulsating heart
The square with the New Town Hall is Munich's pulsating heart. The carillon in the town hall attracts thou­sands of visitors. As the inter­sec­tion of the east-west axis between Isartor and Karlstor and the south-north axis between Sendlinger Tor and Schwabing, it is an ideal starting point for sightseeing tours through the Bavarian capital. In the pre-Christmas period the Christmas Market takes place here.

Church of Our Lady

Cathedral and landmark of Munich
The Gothic cathedral and city parish church “Zu Unserer Lieben Frau” dating back to the 15th century is the landmark of the city. The nave is 109 meters long, 40 meters wide and 37 meters high and is said to accommo­date 20,000 people. The 100 meter high towers with the so called “Welschen Hauben” are based on the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. From the south tower of the Frauenkirche one has a magnif­i­cent view over the city. The footprint in the entrance hall is called the Devil's Step. The devil himself is said to have stood here because he had bet with master builder Jörg von Halspach for his soul. The church regu­larly gives organ concerts, has several choirs and its own cathedral singing school.


Munich's culinary centre
The Viktu­al­ienmarkt is the culinary centre of Munich. On 22,000 square metres you will find every­thing from fresh fruit and vegeta­bles and unusual cheeses to exotic spices. There are also snack and coffee stands and a cosy beer garden with a maypole. Munich's star chefs are also taking advantage of the wide range of prod­ucts on offer, and, in addi­tion to gourmets from all over the world, they are also welcome customers at the Viktu­al­ienmarkt.

Romantic university town on the Neckar

The capital of the Palatinate (Kurpfalz) is at the point where the Neckar coming from the Odenwald enters the Rhine valley.

It is consid­ered the cradle of German Romanticism and has inspired poets such as Brentano, Arnim or Eichendorff. The city is mentioned for the first time at the end of the 12th century. 200 years later the univer­sity was estab­lished and the castle under Pala­tine Count Rupert was built. In 1693 the town and castle were destroyed and rebuilt in the 18th century in baroque style. Rising majes­tically above the roofs of the old town are the ruins of the Heidelberg Castle – the most spectac­ular in its loca­tion, size and beauty in all of Germany. The clas­sical-romantic view of Heidelberg's Old Town and the castle can be enjoyed from the Philosphengärtchen (Philoso­phers' Garden) and along the Philoso­phers’ Way on the north bank of the River Neckar.

Accommodation: A boutique hotel on the River Neckar

2 Nights | 1x Double Occupancy | Bed & Breakfast | 2x Breakfast per person

On entering the rooms in this new boutique hotel guests are first struck by the stunning views of Heidelberg from every window. At night the illu­minated castle and Old Town spread out before you will almost seem unreal. For more unre­stricted pano­ramic views you can relax on the rooftop lounge, or spend the after­noon or evening even higher up in the hotel's private vine­yard – with a well-stocked picnic basket provided by your host.

After admiring the view guests can begin to admire their tempo­rary home away from home: every room and every piece of furni­ture in it were exclu­sively designed by a Floren­tine archi­tect with an eye to balance and harmony. All items of furni­ture were handmade by local craftsmen. While thor­oughly modern, the inte­rior decor was designed to recap­ture the late 18th century spirit of Romanticism, when Heidelberg was Germany's philo­soph­ical and literary centre. The noble simplicity of the 18th century building's white exte­rior gives the impres­sion of a private resi­dence rather than a hotel. Downtown Heidelberg is just a few minutes' walk away across the famous Old Bridge.

Old Bridge

Baroque pede­s­trian bridge
The baroque Karl Theodor Bridge is one of Germany's oldest bridge build­ings and was first mentioned in 1248. There were many previous wooden build­ings, but they were repeat­edly destroyed by drifting ice floes. It was built in its present form in 1788, but towards the end of the Second World War two pillars were blown up by the Wehrmacht to stop the advancing Allied troops. Already in 1947 the bridge was completely recon­structed. At the southern end of the Old Bridge stands the medieval bridge gate with its 28-metre-high double towers. Orig­inally it was part of the city fortifica­tions. Bridge duty was paid at the gate, in case of danger it could be closed by a trap gate.

Mountain railway Heidelberg

Pano­ramic trip to the Königstuhl
With the mountain railway you can go up to the Königstuhl and enjoy the fantastic views over the city and the Rhine plain up to the Palatinate Forest. The lower cable car, one of the most modern mountain railways in Germany, starts at the Kornmarkt in the old town and goes via the Castle to the Molkenkur. From there, you take one of the oldest electrically oper­ated mountain railways to the Königstuhl.

Heidelberg Castle

From a magnif­i­cent Renais­sance building to a symbol of transience
The castle ruin high above the old town of Heidelberg is one of the most famous ruins in Germany and the city's landmark. The forti­fied castle from the 13th century was converted into the magnif­i­cent resi­dence of the Palatinate Electors in the Renais­sance. After the destruc­tion of 1689 and 1693 by the French, the castle was restored only hesi­tantly. In 1764, a devastating fire after lightning struck sealed all efforts. The building was abandoned and the ruin was used as a quarry for the new Schwet­zingen Summer Palace and later for the citi­zens of Heidelberg. At the end of the 18th century, the picturesque ruin was discov­ered by literary figures as a symbol of transience. During the Napoleonic Wars it was reinterpreted as a patri­otic monu­ment.

Philoso­pher's Path

Pano­ramic walk steeped in history
The name comes from a time when all students had to study the seven liberal arts, which were combined under the subject philosophy, before starting their studies. It was prob­ably not so much the scho­lars as the students who discov­ered the path as an ideal place for romantic walks and undis­turbed togeth­er­ness. For the first 700 meters the lower half leads steep and winding through one of the most expen­sive resi­den­tial areas in Heidelberg. Then it cont­inues on nearly even grounds . The Philoso­pher's Garden offers the best view over the Neckar to Heidelberg's old town, the Königstuhl and the castle, but also out into the Rhine plain.
