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.
