Whether you're into delicious cheeses, meaty sausages or some of Germany's less obvious delicacies, you'll find more than plenty to sample in this illustrious foodie country.
Visit Berlin if you want to try the full spectrum of German delights. In this vibrant, thriving city you can visit the most traditional eateries or the cutting edge restaurants of the industry.

Or, alternatively, you can treat yourself to a meal in the lap of luxury with expensive but delicious food brought at your leisure.
For more stylized flavors, visit smaller areas - like Bonn or the larger yet very individual city of Cologne.

From local town tastes to international flavors in trendy bars, you'll be able to try hundreds of delicious ales from across the globe or appearing indigenously in their own particular region. One thing is for certain - if you visit Germany wanting to judge it on its beers and ales, the country will stick in your memory as a hit (even if nothing much else sticks!).
And you can gloat about it to your family and friends back home when staying in touch with cheap calls to Germany until they're green with envy - or book flights of their own so they can join you! Because whether its food or drink - or both - that delights you, Germany is sure to satisfy.
