Germany is a world where natural beauty and man-made contributions collide. This country, with its impossibly beautiful Alps and storybook villages, is also the birthplace of Beethoven, Einstein and the Brothers Grimm. Ancient, romantic hilltop castles were built by tyrannical kings and cobblestone streets were constructed centuries before Columbus set sail. And food has long since surpassed beer and brats - although you find plenty of that iconic repast in vibrant beerhalls throughout the country.
There is much to see in this legendary country. Its rivers boast travel experiences unlike any other. A&K's experts take you down the Rhine, stopping at World War II sites both famous and hidden. A luxury cruise down the Danube highlights legendary Christmas markets, where you peruse crafts while savoring homemade gingerbread and mulled wine.
