About this Travel Guide...

The Live Like a German Travel Guide to Germany suggests many special trips, unique activities, and vacation ideas, that you can't find in a typical German travel guide. We focus on activities that are fun to undertake with your family, including sightseeing and cultural highlights, dining, entertainment, shopping, and sports.

Sometimes on your special German trip, you'll even experience small, but hidden gems, for example, an Italian ice cream parlor in a small village that sells the "world's best ice cream". All the locals know about this shop, but if you were just a "regular" tourist in Germany you might not ever find it and certainly not so easily. See our full list of wonderful things to do during your vacation, so that you are prepared when you travel to Germany. Then you'll be able to truly "live like a German" during your vacation!
