Explore Germany’s Major Cities with Cosmos Tours
If you’re planning a trip to Germany for this year’s Oktoberfest, there are plenty of sights and attractions that warrant an early or extended visit to this world-class destination. With Cosmos Tours preparing your European adventure, you can afford to treat your loved one without breaking the bank.
First stop, the historic city of Berlin. Besides the symbolic trail of cobblestones left at the original site of the Berlin Wall, the German capital offers one of the most vibrant night scenes in Europe. Parties are known to last until the wee hours of the morning or all weekend. If you’re into the performing arts, you can also catch world-class orchestra performances here, like those done by the multi-awarded Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
After Berlin, visit Frankfurt, one of the world’s leading financial centers. Aside from being a center of commerce, the city is also home to a number of museums, notably the Städel. Officially known as Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, the art museum currently holds some 3,000 paintings, 600 sculptures, and more than 10,000 drawings and prints. Highlights include pieces by some of the world’s most prominent artists such as Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Rembrandt van Rijn. For tourists with artistic and intellectual inclinations, a trip to Frankfurt is a must.
On the other hand, if you wish to stay in Munich for Oktoberfest, you can explore and get to know the city better through a bike tour. Ranked by global affairs and lifestyle magazine Monocle as the world’s most livable city in 2013 due to its high quality of living, Munich continues to make its streets more and more bike-friendly. You can visit some of its most famous destinations such as the English Garden, Peace Angel monument, and the Maximilianeum on a bike tour.
