Germany is beautiful, It was my first Europe trip. I always wanted to visit Germany. Everything is amazing about Germany, its culture, language, people and yes the places too. I visited Germany only for five days due to which I missed out so many beautiful places. Plan a trip to Germany for at least 2 weeks then you might get to visit all the places and I am sure you'll love it. Every morning we were served breakfast buffet in German style. It was an astonishing experience. Five days ended too early that we didn't even realize, but it ended well I was so glad and I want to thank my parents for planning such a beautiful trip. Germany is famous for several unique things. 

  • GERMAN BEER:-

Beer has lots of nutrients such as proteins, B Vitamins, phosphorous, magnesium etc. Germany produces some of the most famous beer including becks ans stein and it is the third highest beer-drinking country. I am not promoting alcohol but telling what is famous here in Germany. Drinking in excess can be harmful.

  • OKTOBERFEST:-

If you love attending feasts and festivals then you should visit Germany during late September. This festival is known as Oktoberfest but despite its name it happens in late September. This festival brings people from different parts of the country and culture together, they all gather and enjoy this festival and dance and have beer and wine.

  • BREAD:-

In Germany bread is more than just a food and is actually a part of German culture. Germany produces different varieties of bread and can boast 300 types of dark and white breads and 1,200 types of rolls and mini rolls.

  • SAUSAGES:-

German sausages or Wursts are one of the most important part of German Cuisine. There are almost 1,500 different types of wurst in Germany,  including Blutwurst, Weisswurst and Frankfurters. German sausages can be enjoyed by various types of German sauces, but it is often serves with tomato ketchup or mayonnaise. 

These are the most amazing 'must try' things and I am sure you will love it too. It is one of the most breathtaking place i have ever visited. I love Germany and the people too. I cannot express it through words how beautiful and stunning place it is, it weather and everything is too pleasant. I will never forget this 5 day trip. All these five day were well spent visiting and eating and making new friends. I hope and wish you the same, if you ever plan to visit Berlin, Germany. 

Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) is a beautiful town gate near western end of the avenue Unter den Linden. It is famous because it symbolizes the division of Germany and the country’s reunification. The gate was named Friedenstor (Peace Gate) because it symobolized peace at the time of difficult war. he sandstone structure is composed of 12 Doric columns, the gate has five passages. The central and widest one was reserved for the royals, the adjacent passages were used by the aristocrats while ordinary citizens used the outer two. The Brandenburg Gate, a monumental gate it is the national symbol of Germany, it was built in the eighteenth century, the gate stood between East and West Germany and is Berlin's most famous landmark.

Everybody knows the history of Berlin wall, it divided the country into East Germany and West Germany. The Wall was a 155km-long symbol of oppression that turned West Berlin into an island of democracy within a sea of socialism. There’s a memorial in the spot where Peter Fechter died on Zimmerstrasse. Wondering who is Peter Fechter? Well, he was a German bricklayer, He was about 18 when he became the first vitcim of Berlin wall's border guards who tried to cross over to reach West Germany. The tour begins from East side gallery to Bernauer Strasse. It is an open-air art exhibition on the banks of river Spree. There are more memorials of the wall victims just to the South of Reichstag on the eastern of Scheidemannstrasse. There are bike tours that guide you along part of the wall. There's 160km-long Berliner Mauerweg signpost, they have created a path for walking and cycling.

The Victory Column is a monument in Berlin, Germany. Designed by Heinrich Strack. It is one of the best symbols of Berlin. It is known as "Golden Lizzie" in Berlin slang. The reason for its being built was Prussia’s victory in the German-Danish war in 1864. The 8.3 metre high bronze sculpture weighing 35 tonnes, which was created by Friedrich Drake, represents Victoria wearing a helmet and holding a laurel wreath in one hand and, in the other, a staff bearing an iron cross. The victory goddess Victoria from Roman mythology is analogous to the Greek equivalent of Nike. Her eagle helmet also lets Victoria appear as Borussia, the female personification of Prussia. The 285 steps of the spiral staircase inside the Victory Column don't lead to the spindle and a hundred years of slumber, you will however need to be rather determined and fit to climb the tapering staircase. The base is decorated with large bronze reliefs that depict scenes from the wars. The colonnade above the base is decorated with a mosaic frieze created by Anton von Werner. It depicts the Liberation Wars and subsequent unification of Germany in 1871. The statue represents the Goddess of Victory, but Berliners affectionately call her Goldelse.
