Germany offers active choices for everyone, all year round.
The German ski areas in the Alps and the Alpine foothills with their floodlit pistes are perfect for skiing day and night. Tennis, golf, cycling, water sports and much more make Germany the ideal destination for those enjoying sports and activity.
An elaborate network of well-marked hiking trails makes for the ideal hiking and walking experience. The Alps for example feature 15,000km of trails maintained by the German Alpine Association (Deutscher Alpenverein.)
The regional hiking clubs are represented by the German Association For Mountaineering and Hiking (Verband Deutscher Gebirgs- und Wandervereine) and will gladly inform you on routes, hostels and huts in the area of your choice.
Culture plays a central role in Germany. Have the great variety of cultural sites and events enchant you.
The so called Land of Poets and Thinkers knows how to be traditional and modern at the same time, how to treasure its cultural past and embrace future trends. The Love Parade for example, the gigantic Berlin techno event, attracts hundreds of thousand of young people each year to celebrate Rave, love and Life.
Cures have a long history in Germany. Already the Romans made use of the healing properties of the thermal springs and spread the word all over Europe.
The word "cure" (German: "Kur"), goes back to the Latin expression "cura," meaning care. Then as today a cure is a natural way of awakening our body´s capacity for healing itself and for harmonizing body, mind and soul.
